modifying paypal.php for non-paypal users

Recommended Posts

Well now that PayPal allows non-users to pay by credit card without signing up for a PayPal account, I've noticed that even with the PayPal link, most non-users don't know this.

 

So ... if you take a look at my site, www.ByunMotorsports.com, what I had done is set up a PayPal icon so people with PayPal know that I accept PayPal.

 

Well, non-PayPal users don't know that they can use PayPal as a payment option even if they don't have an account.

 

So I threw up the ol' Visa/MasterCard/Discover icon also to let them know I accept credit cards.

 

Then in my payment option, I created a new file by copying the paypal.php and renaming it creditcard.php, modified the wording a little, so now when people check out, they can click on the Credit Card radio button and they'll be taken straight to the PayPal checkout screen where they can enter their credit card number for nonPayPal users.

 

I thought this would be nice to mention for those who didn't know.


Remember what the Bible says: He who is without sin, cast the first rock. And I shall smoketh it.

A question regarding non member paying using paypal.

 

I have a UK premier account, does this mean non members can make payments to me?

 

Does the cash come through straight away or do you have to wait until they have opened their paypal account?

 

Thanks for your help

Non users are allowed to pay ?!?!?!

 

What a nightmare!

Scammers and fraudulent users are going to have fun with this one.

OMG NO! I am glad I don't use PayPal anymore.

This is built into paypal so you dont need any code changes.

 

Note: This is only available to US Premier Accounts.

I want to try and setup the osc w/paypal but I am afraid, I only know some html, front page and dreamweaver. Can you tell me how difficult it is to setup and are there many issues? Also can you tell me after

you set paypal up w/osc are shoppers able to checkout as a guest, or do they have to sign up? Do you know if that whole Member logon/visit stuff can be removed?

Thanks
