Paypal, not just for paypal users

Using Paypal for processing allows you to accept payment from anyone with a credit card, not just folks with Paypal accounts. They do not need to sign up for a Paypal account to pay you for your product. We have been using Paypal for almost 10 years, with no problems. You can get a debit card to pay for your items, and transfer money between a bank account and your Paypal account.

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.
