Issue Payments en Masse with the Mass Pay API

Send out a large number of payments all at once with the Mass Pay feature through the API.

As described in [Hack #77] , PayPal allows you to send many payments at once through the PayPal web site. Using the Mass Pay API and some slight modifications to the code in [Hack #88] , you can also do this from your own applications.

Tip

You can pay up to 250 payees at once using Mass Pay. To make more than 250 payments, you’ll need to call Mass Pay repeatedly.
