I did a test checkout and PayPal is insisting that I create a PayPal account to checkout. I wanted to pay with a credit card.
It that mandatory to checkout?
Creating a PayPal account should only be required if you have a recurring item.
A once off invoice should be able to be paid with a credit card using PayPal.
Sometimes you also get that if your browser remembers you have a PayPal account, so try an incognito window or another browser or delete your cookies.
I tested this again. I created a new account and then created a featured listing. At checkout, when I was directed to PayPal, I had to create a PayPal account to proceed. I could not pay with a credit card without creating a PayPal account.
This is a problem for my customers.

One note: Be absolutely certain you are using a separate browser. Paypal detects your past visits and will display the login/create dialogue unless you are a ‘fresh’ visitor.
