    I believe the way of achieving this is by copying your form's source code and editing it:

    <input type="radio" class="paymentTypeRadios" id="input_3_paymentType_credit" name="q3_myProducts3[paymentType]" checked="checked" value="credit">

    The yellow part needs to be moved from the paypal button to the credit card option.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    In addition to my colleague's response, I would suggest you to may consider using PayPal Pro instead where users have the ability to choose either paying using thier credit card directly in your form or redirect them to PayPal for payment.

    You might like to take a look at this demo form that I've created.


    You may consider checking this article about the difference between PayPal and PayPal Pro.

    Hello Carina,
    Would it be possible to provide an example of this code implemented on the PayPal standard button script?
