Frequently Asked Questions

I thought PayPal Pro didn’t require an account. Why do customers need a PayPal account?

Website Payments Standard offers Recurring Payments or Subscriptions.

This service is managed/maintained by PayPal and “requires” the customer to have a PayPal Account. When the customer makes a Subscription purchase, he or she is redirected to PayPal. Once on the PayPal Screens the customer can either sign into their PayPal account, or they would pay with their credit card and during the process, create a PayPal account.
