Accepting Credit/Debit Payments via Paypal without account

Recommended Posts

Hi

I created this site last year - www.ellanvannincandles.com, and setup ecommerce linking to the client's PayPal account.

When I set this website up, a user could pay with a debit/credit card via PayPal without having an account. This feature seems to have been disabled? Hopefully someone can confirm this isn't the case? Can someone suggest how my client can accept debit/credit card payments?

Unfortunately, using Stripe as the payment processor isn't an option due to being on the Isle of Man.

Thanks in advance!

If PayPal is the only payment processor connected to the site, customers without a PayPal account must now open one to pay. They can then use credit or debit cards saved to their PayPal account to make payment. It is no longer possible for customers to enter credit or debit card details directly at checkout unless Squarespace Payments (currently US only) or Stripe is connected. That said, I appreciate that businesses based in a British Crown Dependency (like the Isle of Man) are not currently supported by these.

I wish I had better news for you @studiocooper.
