I need to integrate paypal in my store. But I want the guest checkout option(the button by which customers can pay via their credit/debit card through PayPal if they don't have a PayPal account).

Hi, @JJMalik.

 

Welcome to the Shopify Community.

 

In order to enable Guest Checkout on PayPal, you’ll need to meet the following requirements: 

 

 

Here’s how to enable the PayPal account optional setting: 

 

  • Go to your Account Settings.
  • Click Website payments on the left. 
  • Click Update across from “'Website preferences.” 
  • Select On below “PayPal account optional.”

 

To create a PayPal Guest Checkout smart button separate from PayPal, you may need to implement a custom coding solution or look into hiring a Shopify Expert

 

Lastly, I'd like to learn more about your online business. How do you market your business online and what social platforms do you generate most of your traffic from?

Hi Victoria, I have the same challenge and want to add a <Debit or Credit Card> button beneath PayPal button. I went through the steps you advised but the button still did not appear. Will you be able to advise? Thank you.

Hi there, @wendipost.

 

Thanks for being part of the thread!

 

I would like to correct my above post and outline the steps I've shared are how to enable guest checkout on PayPal. 

 

I recommend contacting PayPal Support directly if you're looking to enable a separate button for PayPal Guest Checkout. Their support team may be able to suggest additional options. For more information on their guest checkout option, I'll share PayPal's Help Center resource here.

Hi Victoria

 

I did reach out to PayPal before contacting Shopify. PayPal had advised that Shopify uses a custom code integration of PayPal's payment methods, because of that they recommend that I contact Shopify's support as your team will have the proper documentation to guide me on configuring the Shopify platform. I'm confused as I'm toggling between both teams with no immediate answer. Appreciate if you can help. Thank you.
