MyPTEZ: Setting up the Webstore

The Webstore on MyPTEZ is an add-on to your annual subscription. As of 10/2022 – it was $30 per year.

* Once set up correctly, it can be a one-stop shop for your parents/teachers to make their Annual Donation, PTA membership, and any other PTA products (in some schools: Bagel tickets, Yearbook, PE clothes, etc.).
* Many schools have created a “Full Package” option which allows parents to buy one of everything with ‘one-click’, instead of loading multiple things into their cart.

* Troublesome to issue refunds. Some schools have moved away from the MyPTEZ webstore for their Just Parties fundraising program and have moved to Ecwid.

  1. My PTEZ >> Admin >> Our PTA

2. Our PTA >> Payment Processors

3. Open a new window and log into PAYPAL to find your “API credentials” to find the API Username, API Password, and API Signature.

4. Enter the PayPal API User Name, API Password, and API Signature into their corresponding MyPTEZ Fields.

  • Test credentials to confirm.

5. In My PTEZ, create new categories for:

  • PayPal Undeposited Funds (Asset) – this category is for a temporary holding place until you “Make A Deposit”. ALERT: In MyPTEZ: Be sure to transfer money out of this asset category into your PayPal account on so that there is no double accounting.
  • PayPal Convenience Fee (Income) – this category comes into play IF you charge your parents/donors a convenience fee. Most PTAs absorb the fee/ include the PayPal fee in their product price
  • PayPal Record Amount (Income)
  • Processing Fee Account. If you already have a category for your bank fees/ merchant fees/ online fees – list it in this field.
