Thanks so much for your reply! I’m rather new this coding, can you help out what to exactly look for in that code, as I’m a bit lost right now. Many thanks!!

You are looking at a diff of some files where payeeEmail was added - which I thought sounded a bit like what you wanted.

Here is the current version of the file:

But this makes it clear that it is for the “person that is paid”, and not payer. Also it is set on the Payment before it is executed, so more a setting of the payment.

So: Doesn’t help you at all.

Yeap, exactly. I need the PAYER’S PayPal Email, but the Payee’s (the one getting the money).

I looked at this page from PayPal, do you think I am moving in the right direction? Any ideas/advice would be awesome as I really need the payer’s PayPal email, as I’m building a marketplace app. Thanks a lot!

To be honest this isn’t something I would do in the client. So no, no idea.
