How to use PayPal with a Credit Card

PayPal is one of the most popular payment gateways for making online payments.

You do not need a PayPal account in order to make payments online, and you do not need to create an account. Anyone with a credit or debit card can pay as a guest.

If you do not have a PayPal account and do not want to create one, follow the steps below to checkout online:

1. On the checkout screen, fill in your information and click the “Check out with PayPal” button at the bottom of the screen. You do NOT need a PayPal account, and you will NOT be required to create a PayPal account. PayPal is simply acting as a payment gateway.

2. When the “Pay with PayPal” screen appears, click the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” button at the bottom of the screen. There is no need to enter an email address or mobile number since you are not logging into a PayPal account.

3. The PayPal Guest Checkout screen will appear (see red box on the screen shot below). Enter your information, including credit card information, and click the “Pay Now” button at the bottom of the screen. Your credit card will be charged.


You have successfully checked out with a credit card without having or creating a PayPal account.
