    I submitted my application to paypal and they sent me an email later saying i wasnt approved.


    But i saw in this email "  You can still accept credit cards on your website using PayPal Website Payments Standard. There’s no application, no monthly fee, and no advanced programming required. Pricing can be as low as 1.9% + $0.30 per transaction. Learn More. "

    With Website Payment Standard the users will be redirected to Paypal's website where they will have to login and confirm their Paypal account while Website Payment Pro the option to choose between Paypal or Credit Card is within the form itself. However if you have enabled Paypal Optional in your Paypal account settings then users can pay using Credit Card without having to open a Paypal Account, this Paypal feature is only available to Premier and Business account holders only.
