I need assistance figuring something out. I have a paypal sandbox account setup and am testing the checkout system. It's a verified business with credit card and bank account.
When an item is added to cart and Place Order is selected, I am directed to Paypal as normal. The one catch is that the "guests" are required to create a paypal account.
I have logged into the test sandbox account and went to "Website Payment Preference" and turned ON "PayPal Account Optional".
In woo settings "Enable sandbox" is selected, and "Enable guest checkout (no account required)" is selected. All registration options are off, except email for username.
I have tried checking out and leaving the password fields blank, but that returns an error.
So with all this, why is the paypal payment screen forcing me to create an account?
Thank you for the help in advance. Have a great year!
