  • OT: For PayPal merchants that sell on web sites

    Hi All,

    I just wanted to let the U.S. merchants know that their buyers will no longer be required to sign up for an account (for web site payments using the 'Donations, 'Shopping Cart', or 'Buy Now' buttons on their web site).

    My apologies for not being here much lately. I've been caught up on the eBay forums.

    eBay has forums? Interesting.
    But that new feature is pretty much the awesomest thing that was done by PayPal.

      That's new to me. Where did you hear this? Link?

              Info

              Hi Tuan_Le,


              This is the email that was sent about the new way of doing web site payments.

              PayPal has optimized the checkout experience by launching an exciting new improvement to its payment flow. These changes apply to the following Website Payments features: Buy Now Buttons, Donations, and PayPal Shopping Cart.

              With our new checkout, making a transaction is easier than ever. Your buyer can complete a payment first, and then have the option of saving their information for future transactions. Once customers have decided to make a purchase, they are walked through four easy steps:
              1. Shipping information
              2. Billing information
              3. Review of payment information
              4. Save customer information with PayPal (optional) — To shop more quickly and easily in the future, customers can save their personal information they’ve already entered with PayPal. All they need to do is choose a confidential password and answer a few security questions.
              To toggle off this new feature, simply log in, go to Profile subtab, click on Website Payment Preferences in the Selling Preferences column, and check the yes/no box under PayPal Account Optional.

                  Hi Tamarian,

                  PayPal is looking at the possibility of extending it to non US merchants.
