    One of my customers doesn't have a Paypal account and he doesn't want to sign up for Paypal, he wants to pay with his Visa credit card. So is there any way to receive payments from credit card to my Paypal account?

    Even if your customer doesn't have paypal account he can still pay you with his credit card through paypal , that is possible as far as i know.No need to sign up for paypal

    Paying directly with credit card only available to premier or business paypal accounts. Not available in personal accounts i guess. If you have premier o business account, just send him a buy now button url and he can pay with creditcard.

    If you're in this business and you dont have a business paypal account, you really need to get one.

    I've had mine since 2000 and it really makes doing business so much easier a lot of times.

    Thank you for your support. After some more research I found that I have to set "Paypal Account Optional" feature to on, which makes it possible to accept payments from customers who don't have Paypal accounts. Paypal says this feature is available for premier and business accounts. I have premier account but the problem is I don't have the "Paypal Account Optional" feature, and I can't figure out why.

    Doesn't the person have to give you the card number? How is that safe? (nothing against you)

    The guest payment feature is available for premier accounts too, however it is available only in a few countries, so upgrading to business account won't solve the problem.

    Credit card would be just fine. He doesn't need a PayPal account.
