Hi, I know this topic has been dealt with but I don't seem to be able to reply to the postings. So here it is again...
I have a Business Account,/Merchant account with PayPal Payment Standard in the new version (I assume its new because I see the My Sellilng Tools option under Profile). I have read the entire post by crazedcat and have tried all the suggestions including different browsers and even a friend on their PC to see if it works. No where do I find the PayPal Account Optional setting.
At present there is no option to pay by credit card appearing when my users go to the pay page. The only options are:
Have a PayPal Account?
Create a PayPal Account.
Are there any other suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Which country did you register your PayPal account in?
This option may not be available in all countries.
If you're certain it should be available, you should find it under Profile > My selling tools > Website preferences > Update > PayPal Account Optional (the direct link to this page is https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/customerprofileweb?cmd=_profile-website-payments )
Thank you for your reply.
I am in Canada.
I have read on another post that it is neccessary to have my bank account and email verified/confirmed which I neglected to do. So I am in the process of doing that to see if it changes things.
Should I expect this to make the difference?
Yes, you indeed need to have a confirmed email address before this option becomes available.
Thanks for the info.
I have now confirmed my email address. Would it be neccessary to redo the "add to cart" buttons which I created before confirming the email address - I ask this because I have tested the button, since confirming the address, and there is still no credit card options. OR, does the bank account confirmation need to also be completed first?
I appreciate your assistance.
I am new to the forum.
I have a similar problem
I am in New Zealand and have a small website,
I cannot afford a full merchant accunt (yet) so I offer Paypal as my payment method.
But I now have some one in the USA who wants to buy my product but they do not have Payapal.
Would anyone here kindly visit my website and check to see if a pay by Visa option comes up when they click on the Paypal button ?
HI Digmen 1,
I visited your site and yes, the credit card / debit card is available. Well done!
Paypal 101 here?
I have the same problem.
Yes the email address is confirmed
Yes I am in the US
