Do my clients need a PayPal account or can they pay with a credit card?

PayPal Account Optional allows customers to complete website payments with PayPal even if they don’t have a PayPal account. To use this feature, you need to have a verified PayPal Premium/Business account and to confirm the email address used for accepting payments.

Here’s how to enable the PayPal Account Optional feature:

Remember to always select the same language in the PayPal payment gateway box from Payments as the one you are using in your PayPal account. If it is all set correctly, your form users will no longer be required to log in or create a new account on PayPal to finish payments.
