Do my constituents need a PayPal account to use PayPal on my site? Your organization is using PayPal as your payment processor. When your constituents attempt to check out (register, donate), they are presented with two options: Check out with PayPal or pay with a credit card. Paying with a credit card requires that users signup up for a PayPal account. You would prefer that your constituents not need a PayPal account to make a transaction on your fundraising website.
Your constituents may place transactions via PayPal as a guest with no need to create a PayPal Account. See details on the PayPal website. Note that this feature is available to Premier and Business account holders only. Please contact PayPal directly with any questions.
