  • If the approval is denied during the review, your settlement may be deferred. Please contact PayPal for details.
  • After completing registration, you may register a credit card and the payment currency. b.stage supports KRW and USD.
  • When you receive a customer complaint, there are cases where the complaint is processed and a refund is requested through the PayPal website. PayPal will suspend payment for this purchase and you must submit the relevant documentary evidence.
  • If there is not enough data or if you do not submit documents, the refund will automatically be paid to the customer, so it is highly recommended that you manage your account every 1-2 weeks.
