Support » Plugin: eShop » PayPal requires to create an account instead of credit cards

  • Resolved Gabriele Romanato


    When a user finalize his purchase, the PayPal page shows only two options:
    1) login with your paypal account
    2) create a paypal account

    There’s no “don’t you have a paypal account?” option. I’m a web developer who’s trying to finish an e-commerce site but I won’t surely be paid if I don’t solve this problem.

    Help needed. thanks! 🙂

    check the merchant gateway page, look for a checkbox to not send something to paypal.

    Also, I have yet to see a payapl page where there is not usually a link, albeit hard to find.

    I’ve selected “No” on “Send buyers email addresses to paypal?” but I still get the same page. Apparently the following code: (paypal.php, line 90) doesn’t work:

    in test mode, do a test sale, and stop at the redirect to paypal page, check the source, is that email still there?

    The e-mail has been unset, but when I go to the PayPal page there’s still no “don’t you have a PayPal account” link.

    then check your settings at paypal, eShop can only change that to influence which form paypal shows.

    Solved. We asked our clients to use a Business account. Using my biz account on the sandbox works perfectly. Sorry for the trouble. And thanks. Your plugin is great. 🙂
