    Hi

     

    how can I add support for credit cards in other countries other than US, Canada and UK thru Paypal?

    Im currentyl getting - "merchant country unsupported" error when submitting payment

    I understood Paypal offers a service called "express" checkout" to allow payments from wider sets of countires. do you support this kind of service in your forms?

    Thanks

    I would recommend using another Payment Gateway if PayPal does not support the country you want to received payment. Using PayPal express will still give you a merchant country unsupported error as the payment will still be handled by PayPal.

    I switched to my US paypal accoutn so this can help with the mechant support issue.

     

    now, how do I enable buyers to accept credit cards without the need for paypal account?

     

    according to paypal this is possible without payapl pro service.

    so no solution at present?

    you are missing something important in your paypal button.

    credit card payment is a big and usefull feature on paypal.

    Do you think some variable we send to paypal is causing this? Can you create a paypal button for the exact payment and send us the URL so that we can see how it behaves differently.

    pleae see this link in my website:

    http://www.pink-perfect.com/#!Order/c1fve

    you can fill in bogus info and click on order button, then you'll see that the paypal page does not contain any credit card payment option

     

    thanks

    hey 

    a small problem here: after updating the price of my product (from 2$ to 490$)

    I still see the old price in the paypal page redirection.

    I deleted the paypal object from the form and re-added it but didnt help.

    how do I solve it?
