    Another question, Does the client need to set up an account with paypal in order to pay by credit card?  There are only two options - 1) pay with my paypal account or 2) create a paypal account.

    I thought that in the screens I have seen there was another option just to pay with credit card - no paypal account needed.

    ????That last one is the one I want - pay by credit card and no account needed

    Any way to do that?

    Let me please inform you, that the PayPal account is not required for PayPal credit card payments.

    However, you will need to make sure that a 'PayPal Account Optional' is not disabled on your PayPal account.

    Profile -> My Selling Tools -> Website preferences -> PayPal Account Optional.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    That option is not listed on my Website preferences.

    This feature is available to Premier and Business account holders only. If you got one of these accounts, and you still don't see the option, you should contact Paypal support.

    What package do you have to purchase to receive the option to not have paypal, but can just pay with a credit car?
