    I am trying to build an order form and integrate PayPal Checkout. However, when I test the form and choose the debit/card payment option, my only option is to create a PayPal account (see attached screenshot). I have seen other forms where a "Continue as Guest" link appears so that the user does not have to create a PayPal account. How can I get this to appear on my form?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    If your PayPal account is of Business type, kindly try with the PayPal Business integration instead of PayPal Checkout integration.

    I tried using PayPal Business instead, but I got a message saying, "You’ll need to revise your current Business account to accept payments." I followed the prompts to revise my PayPal account, but got to a screen where the questions simply weren't applicable (see screenshot) because the account is for a parent organization at my son's school. I could not complete the revisions to my PayPal account to make it work.

    Hi again,

    Kindly note that you will need to convert your PayPal account to be of Business type. Please see the PayPal guide below.
