Does Woocommerce handle PayPal Personal accounts or PayPal accounts using API? (5 posts)

    HI there,

    I have a question about the PayPal set up. I know woocommerce accept PayPal standard and I was under the presumption that you can simply use your email from your personal PayPal account.

    My "Place Order" button isn't working and I was wondering is it because I don't have a PayPal Business or Premier account.

    I'm getting an error message at the top and its referring to some jibberish associated to PayPal.

    But anyway, does Woocommerce Accept personal PayPal accounts or not?

    You can just use a regular Paypal account for Paypal standard. You only need premier/business if you're using Paypal Pro.

    So all I needed to do was use my email right? Cuz that's what I did, and I'm not sure what's wrong every time I try to place an order. So I guess I'm not doing anything wrong there.

    Yeah I know, I know but I can't show it live...

    But I copied this error message I'm getting (with some changes due to protection of information.) This is what I get when I try to place an order after I've made my selections to transfer over to PayPal's page:

    The error looks like this:


    Does anyone have any luck to see what's going on here?
