Hi,

 

I have a customer that we do consistently do business with and we would like to save his credit card on file. Is there a way that we can save their credit card details with their name so that we can use to charge them and the customer does not have to give the credit card details every time?

They sign up for a PayPal account, enter their card info once and pay your invoices by logging on.

 

Otherwise, you'll need: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/virtual-terminal


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

I do have virtual terminal. However, if we have a client who we need to charge every week, how can we store the credit card information in our account for that user?

Did you ever figure this out? I have the same issue. I run a business that has a cancelation policy and have no real way of holding clients to it at this point as I don't have a way to store their information securely.

The competitors do this but I haven’t seen PayPal adopt this. Wish they did.

I also need a way to have card-on-file due to pandemic. My customers feel safer keeping the transactions more distant. May have to switch to Square, though I've used PayPal exclusively since 2012
