I would like to post a resolution here for the benefit of the community. It turns out that the paypal express button was showing up at the begining of my check out process and I was mislead that after filling out Name Etc the button at the bottom of the page said "shipment Method". I assumed there was no other screen after that but that is in fact where the credit card info is collected. I am trying to figure out how to just move the paypay express button to the same page as the credit card page. Hope that helps.
Can somebody from shopify answer on this problem that so many shop owners have?
With such high monthly fee we pay, i would expect a better customer service!!
I have same problem, the credit card icons dont display at the initial steps of check out, while there is massive branding of paypal.
If a customer doesnt want to pay by paypal, will not be able to figure out that credit card icons will appear later and is a high risk of losing the sale.
thanks for your help!
