We now have a new PayPal integration option available which allows you to accept credit card donations directly to your PayPal. You can find it here 


Simply click the blue panel and follow the onboarding to link your Business PayPal account to Streamlabs. 


After you sign in, you need to fill out all of the information to the best of your ability. This is required for this business integration. PayPal recently updated their business integration processes as of June 2022—the process is a bit more involved than before.

  • Describe your business (Individual, Sole Proprietor, Limited Partnership, etc)
  • Tell us about your business
  • Business contact (First and Last name)
  • Legal business name
  • Business Address
  • PayPal User agreement checkbox
  • Share w/ SL checkbox
  • On the phone number portion please leave the number as is (this is a dummy phone number that we will explain how to remove later).
  • Enter your business email address on the email portion- this is shown to all of your donors on their receipts regardless of whether you enter it here. You can use the same email that you use for PayPal. 
  • Tell us more about you
  • SSN
  • DOB
  • Country
  • Home address
  • Another agreement
  • If you enter your personal phone number here and do not remove it in the steps later it will show on senders payment receipts.
  • You must determine your product or service type on your own, or with the help of PayPal support. Streamlabs cannot advise you on this. Please disregard the 3011 being used as placeholder text in the screenshot below.


When you reach the step below, be sure to click "Go Back to Streamlabs" in order to complete the onboarding.


When you are finished you should see the connected status on the blue panel. You will not be able to see the PayPal email connected here because we do not have access to that information. If you do not see the connected status, click the blue panel again and complete the onboarding once more. 



Remove the Customer Service Phone Number From Payers Receipts

Unfortunately PayPal does not allow us to process your business onboarding integration to accept credit card donations without adding a customer service number. Not to worry, we have entered a dummy number to protect your information and you can remove it from your PayPal profile by following the steps below. 

In order to configure your PayPal account to accept tips/donations automatically, follow this guide
