Re: Methods of payment

Hi jrstratton, 


Thank you for contacting the PayPal Community Forum and welcome as a new member!


American Express payments should be accepted to pay the invoice, however, it will depend on whether you accept this payment method in your selling preferences. You can decide what types of payments you want to accept automatically, deny automatically, or review before you accept in your payment receiving preferences.


For example, you can decide what to do when you receive a payment in a currency you don’t hold or block eCheck payments for all website payments except eBay and Mass Pay.

Here’s how to set your payment receiving preferences:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click the Settings icon next to "Log out".
  3. Click My selling tools.
  4. Click Update next to "Block payments" in the "Getting paid and managing my risk" section.
  5. Edit your preferences, and then click Save when you are finished.
