Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Pay through Paypal without a Paypal-Account?

  • Is it possible to use Events Manager’s Paypal-Gateway with the option that Paypal opens with the Button “Pay without Paypal-Account”? That would be very important for me. However, on the test site on https://trywpem.com/ it seems like this option is not possible. Is there a solution for that?

    Thanx!

    Hi,

    Yeah, I was after that too, and had several chats with PayPal support, it’s on their end. They have removed that possibility a year ago ca. Really annoying, they say it’s for “your” convenience and “proven” improved sales for you. It’s a total lucky shot if a user actually gets to pay without creating/signing in to PayPal account.

    (I’m not part of the Events Manager team, just had the same request as you do.)

    Hello,

    The “Pay as Guest” of PayPal is on the PayPal side. The last time I had contact with PayPal is it Depends on several factors, The main once are:

    1. Users IP Location: They only allow it on certain countries
    2. Cookies: If you have previously paid using PayPal on that browser, It sets a cookie so on your 2nd time it would ask you to login with your PayPal.

    However, I wouldn’t be surprised if PayPal would completely remove it, like what @ungern mentioned.

    Correct, country was in there too, as a divider of possibilities.
    “Pay as guest” was a really neat solution, no hassle to sign up both on customers site AND sign up / log in at Paypal.
    Due to this now missing, we’re trying other payment solutions instead.
