There's a safe and easy checkout on eBay that lets your buyers pay you with a credit card. You get paid-the payment is deposited directly into your PayPal account - and your buyer doesn't have to create a PayPal account!

How it works

When a buyer enters checkout, a secure credit card checkout will automatically appear if eBay detects that the buyer doesn't already have a PayPal account or if they can't remember their password.

Why you should know

This information will be helpful to you in explaining the process to your new buyers who may not have a PayPal account or who may have forgotten their password.

FAQs from eBay buyers, plus answers you can give them

Q: How do I pay you if I don't have a PayPal account?

A: You can still pay me without having a PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account, you'll be automatically redirected to a secure page in eBay checkout where you can enter your credit card information. When you're done, you'll have the option of saving your credit card details with PayPal by creating a PayPal account.

Q: I don't want to create a PayPal account. Do I have to pay you with PayPal?

A: You can pay using your credit card without creating a PayPal account. Just enter via the eBay 'Pay Now' button and you'll be directed to a page where you can enter your credit card information.

Q: I forgot my PayPal password so how can I pay you?

A: When you proceed through eBay checkout, you'll be prompted to login to your PayPal account. If your login attempts are unsuccessful you'll be automatically redirected to a secure page where you can enter your credit card information. After you've completed that process, you'll be able to recover your PayPal password by using the online password recovery tool.
