...paying through PayPal without a PayPal account

PayPal Logo

Payments for my artwork and prints are made at PayPal, but you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay, you may enter your credit card's data directly at PayPal and complete your payment. You will not need to register a PayPal account.

Once you get to PayPal, just do as follows:

1. Your PayPal page may look something like this:

Both the “Check Out” and the “Check Out with PayPal” buttons offer payment as a “guest” without a PayPal Account. The link at the bottom of the page: “Secure Payments by PayPal” provides more information about your payment through PayPal.

  • • The "Check Out" button offers payments with Credit or Debit cards only.
  • • The “Check Out with PayPal” button adds the additional option of using a Prepaid Gift Card.

The following instructions are for using the “Check Out with PayPal” button as a “guest”, however, both buttons follow a similar path and request the same information, just on different screens.

Troubleshooting PayPal if this isn't working for you....

PayPal is not accepting my credit card - If your card is associated with a PayPal account, you will have to use a different card or log into your PayPal account.

I can't find a "Don't have a PayPal account?" option - Unfortunately, PayPal does not allow direct credit card payments in all cases. Sometimes it's because of your location, or sometimes PayPal might believe that you actually own a PayPal account based on your browser's cookies. You might correct this by deleting your cookies.
