No PayPal Account Payment

Recommended Posts

There is an option in the PayPal account settings, to have the cutomer pay by credit card directly, without having to register a PayPal account.

 

I have this option enabled in my custmers PayPal account. (I access his account through the multi-user acces).

 

When going through the payment process I am taken to the PayPal page at. https://www.paypal.com/row/cgi-bin/webscr?

 

There is a link to pay without having a PayPal account, click it and you can pay without the account.

 

I would like to take the customer directly to that page where they just have to enter their credit card number.

 

Is this possible?

 

In the PayPal site I have under "Profile" / "Website Payment Preferences"

 

-- Auto Return for Website Payments set to "ON" http://mysite.com/catalog/checkout_success.php

-- Payment Data Transfer set to "ON" -- (There is a key there that I don't know what to do with?)

-- Encrypted Website Payments set to "OFF" because I don't have an SSL Certificate

-- PayPal Account Optional is set to "ON"

 

On my site I have a fresh install of 2.2rc2a and I have PayPal Website Payments Standard enabled in the shipping modules.

 

Thanks.

I spent some time on the paypal site and I figured out "PayPal Account Optional".

 

If your customer has a paypal account he is taken to the paypal account sign in page. If paypal does not recognize the customer they are taken to the page to pay by credit card without having to open a paypal account.

 

I deleted all my cookies and when processing an order, I was taken to the pay by credit card page, with my name and address prepopulated.

 

The only fall back is that when "PayPal Account Optional" is on the customer is not automaticly redirected back to the store, they are given the choice to return and have to click the link.

 

I took the time to answer myself, just in case there are others who are as dumb as me :rolleyes:

Did you find out a solution to forcing the customer click the link or having the customer redirected back to the store if paying by credit card to complete the order?
