    U had an option to choose PP as a payment method?
    I only had those two which I don't really prefer.
    When I clicked on PayPal icon on the bottom it gave me some tutorial on how to use PayPal as a payment method,but I can't use it.

    I think I finally tackled this mystery. I used to have the same problem and it seemed random. Sometimes it would give me the option and sometimes it would take it away. I started noticing that whenever I bought a domain on sale for really cheap, like the dollar deals paypal was not an option. So I think there is a minimum to pay with paypal, probably because of the fees that they charge. This is not proven, just a theory.

    Yes thats what its all about, when they do promotions you cant pay with paypal, you got to pay with CC.

    Right... if you're trying to buy with the cheap coupon code then PP is not an option... I already used mine so I'm showing up just fine (with PP) for regular domain purchases.

    I've always used PP to buy Godaddy domains with promo codes. Yet last new year 1.49 promo code worked only with my CC.
    So indeed this is how it works.
