Configuring Zoom webinars with PayPal
Registration fees for Zoom webinars can be charged via PayPal with the Zoom with PayPal integration. They redirect attendees to PayPal after they register for your webinar. After payment, they will receive instructions on how to join the webinar.
Registration fees may also apply to on-demand webinars. The recording and the live webinar are available for those who register before the webinar begins. The recording is available to those who register after the webinar has started, but there is no charge for registration.
This feature automatically activates the Limit Number of Registrants when you activate it. If PayPal integration is enabled, the maximum number of registrations is 500. If the host has a Webinar 500 license, the maximum number of registrations cannot exceed this capacity. However, registrants may be restricted below the maximum capacity.
Note: PayPal may temporarily charge $1 to registrants who check out with a new payment method or who use PayPal for the first time.

How to refund registration fees as a host
Zoom and PayPal will automatically refund an attendee’s registration fee if the attendee cancels their registration prior to the start of the webinar. However, the host must manually issue a refund to registered attendees if the webinar is canceled. Since automatic refunds are only available for cancellations before the first scheduled session in a series, hosts must also manually issue refunds for registrants who cancel after the first session.
