    Hi Megan89,


    Thanks for your post and for waiting patiently for a response.


    When someone pays for something on behalf of the club, you can record the bill as usual and choose the bank or cash account they used. This keeps track of the expenses owed by the club. To reimburse the person, create a Spend Money transaction from the club's account, categorizing it as a refund.


    For a sponsorship contribution, record the payment against the invoice, making sure it's categorized correctly as income.


    Regarding PayPal accounts for business, opinions can vary. Some find it convenient due to its widespread use and ease of transaction, while others are cautious due to potential fees and security considerations. 


    While I can provide some general information, it's recommended that you consult with a professional accountant or financial advisor for advice tailored to your specific situation.
