paypal

Hi

Has anyone out there worked out how to itegrate the free paypal accounts?

90% of my clients use it as part of ebay and whilst PS3 is the usual great product this will for me be a serious issue.

thanks

Ian

I understand that a few people have been doing just that, but you will need eCart to help make the transition.

Do a search of the forums for 'paypal standard' and you should find what you need.

Power Store includes checkout using PayPal Express Checkout which is a free service. Use this instead of transitioning to Paypal standard. Using Express checkout, you can still maintain the inventory control functionality of PowerStore.

Jason,

Perhaps you can correct me here but I thought paypal express was for those who are already registered with paypal. For people who are not registered with paypal and want to use their credit card would you not have to use paypal standard? Of course paypal pro does that but this thread was about avoiding the $30 a month fee which is a lot for a new startup or someone with a small store to supplement their business.

With both PayPal express and PayPal Standard the customer must have a paypal account to be able to purchase.

You can configure your paypal account to draw funds from a verity of sources like your checking account or you can link it to your credit card.


this allows the customer flexibility in how they will pay for the order, in either case, though, they need to have a paypal account.

Sorry Jason but that's not quite true. I have previously set up paypal accounts with standard and when you click on the 'pay now' icon it takes you to paypal where you can logon or there is a notification saying:

"Don't have a PayPal account?
Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue
Visa Mastercard American Express Discover"

You click on continue and this allows you to pay with a credit card without a paypal account. Not everybody has one and I don't want to force people to have to set up an account to buy the product.

When you fill in the credit card form on the paypal site, you are creating a new PayPal Account.


Yes, it allows you to pay by credit card, but not without creating a paypal account.

see the paypal documentation:
PP_WebsitePaymentsStandard_IntegrationGuide.pdf

on page 266 there is a screen shot, notice the heading for the form that allows the user to enter their credit card says "Create A PayPal Account". also notice this form is requiring you top enter and validate a password.

I accept that. My point or perhaps question was that with pp express doesn't the user first need an account since it searches for that. As you are still on your server site I don't think the option comes up for a user to create a user pp account but I don't know this for sure since I haven't used express before. I'm guessing that's what it's about though.
