View Full Version : Paypal and Credit Cards?
08-23-06, 07:40 PM
Hello! WHMCS rules, just to start off. I am wondering if it's possible to have the paypal option use credit cards without them having to create a paypal account first?

extract...Your customers then enter their payment information on a secure PayPal-hosted page that you can easily customise to match the look and feel of your website. Your buyers do not need a PayPal account to pay you. When your customer completes the payment, PayPal instantly processes the transaction by routing it through the payment processing network...
thought that might help
Depending on the PayPal account you have you are able to accept credit cards via PayPal with out having a paypal account.. This is something on PayPal's side and not WHMCS. WHMCS will log the information and setup the account...

im having a slight problem with this as well... I have the merchant standard acct with paypal, turned the IPN on, put the URL in, and it shows up on the order page with paypal. BUT it only has the option of those that are paypal clients or those that want paypal accts. to pay for the item.
Can lemme know what im doing wrong? Im trying to have that option to pay for the items WITHOUT being a paypal client already.
Thanks in advance!
You need to use PayPal Invoices and not PayPal Subscriptions. Only PayPal members can setup subscriptions, but if you send clients invoices, then anyone can pay - even if they don't have a PayPal Account. This is just the way PayPal works.

Thanks Matt for replying. Im still lost as to how to set it up on paypal. Im not as familiar with paypal as i never use them, but figure they can be a great option for those that want to use it. At any rate, so in order for the non-paypal client option to work, I have to send an invoice? There is no way for them to purchase the product through my site and automatically do that with the paypal standard account? As you can see, im very lost...
I have replied to your other post about this issue.
