Integrate Trainerize Pay with PayPal Payflow Pro or PayPal Business as the Payment Gateway
At the moment you can only use Stripe as your payment gateway, but since Stripe does not offer true merchant account services, international payments very often fail.
To solve this problem, trainers should be able to integrate their PayPal Business account (or PayPal Payflow Pro account) to Trainerize Pay as their default payment gateway.
PayPal Business and PayPal Payflow Pro offer true, verified merchant account services and therefore would reduce considerably the amount of failed payments business owners face right now.
Also, clients could use PayPal Express checkout or maybe even PayPal Credit to pay.
Thanks for coming to the idea forum and adding your vote to this idea.
We’re keeping this set to ‘Not Right Now’ as bringing on a new payment gateway is a significant undertaking, and it’s not something we’re looking to do at the moment.
If you are in international territories and would like to connect your own stripe acccount, you can add your vote here:

In a lot of countries, it can take up to a week to even receive payments through Stripe into bank accounts, which is why I use Paypal because it goes in straight away.
Not being able to use Paypal is one massive deterrent for me when choosing a software to use with clients so this is really inconvenient, especially when we've received all this marketing from Trainerize this week about their pay add on, the fact is, it would be incredibly useful, but just isn't because I can't afford to be waiting a week for my earnings so Stripe is a no go for me.

Should have. Stripe is over 35 countries but almost none of them in Asia.
PLEASE add Paypal and watch us trainers grow faster on your platform. Training more people = more profit for everyone

I use PayPal business. It's more cost effective and people like using it
Just voted. Also a prob with stripe payments is the transaction in our bank doesn't show the clients name.

Your platform dosent support bank transfer to my country and you have very limbered countries. So, you can enable accepting paypal where customers can pay me as trainer through my PayPal account directly through your platform where all subscription and recurrenig will be anabled.

Link Paypal to Trainerize for countries not linked to Trainerize Pay (like South Africa)

I want all my services I offer to be viewable on one page. That being said, I offer a one time payment for a meal plan plus I offer online training services at various prices paid per month. Currently the website designer does not allow for 2 Paypal buttons and after talking with Paypal you would need 2 different buttons if you want to offer a buy now and a subscription service.

Ability on mobile app for a client to view a trainer's scheduling availability and make payment via PayPal if there is an associated charge.
