Store Payment Methods

BrickLink offers several different payment methods and provides two payment types: Onsite and Offsite. Sellers can choose which payment methods/types they will accept in their Store Settings. All the selected methods will be displayed to buyers at the checkout.

Onsite Payment

Onsite Payment is a feature that allows buyers to pay for their order after the seller issues an invoice without leaving BrickLink. Buyers will see a Pay button on their My Orders Placed, Order Details, or My Messages page. Payments that are accepted will deposit directly into the seller’s connected account.



Supported Payment Methods

  • PayPal - Online payment service. If PayPal for both Onsite and Offsite Payment is enabled, they will both show up at checkout and are treated as different payment methods.
  • Stripe - Online payment service that lets sellers accept major credit/debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, Discover, Diners Club and JCB.

Enabling Onsite Payment

For stores that opened on or after November 18, 2015, Onsite Payment is enabled by default. For stores that opened prior to that date, sellers can connect their Stripe and/or PayPal account under “Onsite Payment” in My Accepted Payment Methods page

Micropayments

If you have a Micropayments account, you can deposit accepted payments equal or lesser than designated cut-offs into your Micropayments account. To use Micropayments account on BrickLink, You have to enable PayPal Onsite first and then you can connect your Micropayments account. You must have a separate PayPal account that has the Micropayments fee structure.

Please note that BrickLink is not responsible of any fee issues caused by using Micropayments account such as overcharge from conversion rate, wrong Cut-off amount, PayPal’s policy change on Fees, etc. To set up more accurate Cut-offs, BrickLink highly recommends to check on PayPal’s user agreement for your country on a regular basis.

To opt in Micropayments, Check “Add a Micropayments account” on the PayPal Onsite Payment section. Once checked, the section will be expanded to let you enter Micropayments account information. Enter your PayPal email address and Full name of your Micropayments account. After it’s connected successfully, you have to enter each Cut-off amount for domestic and everywhere else. (For US sellers, $11.90 is entered by default.) You can add/set a Cut-off for each country. Please note that currency for Cut-off amount is based on your store currency.

Please note that changing country information can also change Cut-off information for orders. When you change your country information, please make sure to set right cut-offs for each country.
