Just want to write a quick note to inform everyone that you can now pay with your credit card even you don’t a PayPal account.
The payment processing system we originally used was PayPal Express Checkout. Although it took less time to implement, it didn’t allow any payment from people without a PayPal account. We’ve lost few sales just because of it.
I spent couple hours yesterday working on a new integration with PayPal Website Payment Standard, which lets you pay with your credit card even if you don’t own an existing PayPal account.
A little screenshot to show where you can pay without credit card instead of PayPal balance:
Then you just enter your credit card information.
A thank-you goes to everyone that expressed their needs about this via email on the last couple days. I truly appreciate it. Without you, I wouldn’t even know that I lost sales because of the payment limitation.
