Payments by PayPal

When you only accept credit cards (instead of PayPal), and you want me to upgrade, I have to have my wallet with me in order to do what you want. I check this email box early in the morning. I am upstairs, my wallet is usually downstairs. I sometimes feel very lazy and don't feel like trudging downstairs to retrieve it.

On the other hand, PayPal is always 'with me.' I actually prefer payments by PayPay since (1) most of my Internet corrrespondents accept PP payments and (2) it accounts for my purchases better than my credit card company does.

Have you considered accepting payments by PayPal? (I promise I have no relation to PP other being than a satisfied user.)

Why do you have a problem with providing a PayPal gateway for purchasing your products. All I get are messages saying "we're not offering PayPal at the moment". Well, the "moment" is over. Join the real world and allow potential customers to use a payment method used by millions.

Processing fees (paid by any business) are significantly higher if the customer uses Paypal rather than Visa or MC. One reason many businesses do not accept Amex is that they have the highest merchant fees of all.

I have always found that 96.5% of something always results in more than 97.5% of nothing. And when it comes to software, the marginal cost of the last 'copy' being essentially $0, the little extra doesn't really matter.

Accept PayPal so your customers don't have to share their financial information and can feel secure in their transactions, it is the first thing I look for when making an online purchase.

Wish I could have used paypal for payment..

It would have been great to have the ability to purchase with paypal. I had to get it on ebay which took much longer. Love the product though.

Great news - we're overhauling our online store and plan to add support for PayPal payments as part of that project. Thanks for suggesting this!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that using PayPal as a payment option should be active as of today.

Please note that PayPal is not a payment option for Pro. PayPal is considered a form of delayed payment which we can't accept for our subscriptions.
