How to Use PayPal Without Opening an Account

PayPal offers an electronic payment service throughout the world, but it also functions as a typical payment processor. If a merchant or company uses PayPal to accept payments, you do not need a PayPal account to pay the business. PayPal allows you to pay with a credit card directly, and you do not need to sign into or create a PayPal account.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Choose the PayPal payment option on the merchant's site. You may need to click a separate button labelled "Check out with PayPal" or choose PayPal from a drop-down or selection menu.

  2. 2

    Click the "continue checkout" link under the section labelled "Don't have a PayPal account?"

  3. 3

    Input the credit card information and your personal information into the fields provided. Submit the information and follow the on-screen instructions from the business to finalise the order.
