When using PayPal to process payments for your event, attendees should have the choice to pay using a credit/debit card or by signing up or logging in to their PayPal account. Signing up for a PayPal account shouldn't be required by default, but we recommend checking this setting to make sure your buyers can complete their purchase as smoothly as possible. To check this, log in to PayPal, go to your "Profile and Settings" and select "My selling tools." Then choose "Update" next to your "Website preferences" and make sure the "PayPal Account Optional" feature is turned on
Tip: Check out PayPal's website to learn more about the PayPal Account Optional feature.
Pro Tip: If you haven't already, make sure to set PayPal as the payment processor for your event. PayPal setup for Credit processing & Payout
