    I set up a registration form for a class that we needed to receive payment. I thought that it showed you could pay with your PayPal account or by credit card. As folks tried to sign up they were required to have a PayPal account. Is there an option to pay with a credit card or PayPal account when using your forms? If this is a question I need to ask PayPal it would be good to know that as well. Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, we do not have guest checkout option on the Paypal payment tools. However, you can enable "Account Optional" feature as suggested by Paypal on this post https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Business-Archive/How-to-Enable-Guest-Checkout/td-p/607988?profile.language=en.

    Note that this feature is available to Premier and Business Paypal Account holders only as stated on that article. 

    Hope this information helps!
