I'm wondering whether it's possible to get payments on my Business Paypal accout from customers who don't have a Paypal account and don't want to create one.

Just want to let my customers enter their credit card info to validate the transaction.

Is it possible and if yes where should I configure this ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for your tips.

But actually, I use PHP code to call

https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc (sandbox) 

or live https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

to execute the paiement and handle the return notify_url/code.

Is there a parameter to define in the call done here?

Also enable the function:

Business account: Account Settings > Website Payments > Website Preferences > Update > PayPal account optional

Thanks for the info.

In fact the option was already active.

The "problem" for customers is:

When Paypal initial form is displayed, it asks to enter an email or a mobile phone or to clic a button to use a Paypal account.

 

Obviously, it's not trivial to understand that entering only an email adress wil let the customer to enter it's credit card data...

 

By the way, in the end, all info + email and password are required, so a Paypal account is still created 😉
