    Has anyone had an issue with payments from Germany ? My German is not good but it seems as if “guest” payments are not an option on Paypal in Germany, people are being asked to sign up for a Paypal account ? ….and not wanting to.

    Hi Gene,
    PayPal and the ability to use the Guest checkout is wholly under the control of PayPal. I’ve met some countries where the Guest checkout just doesn’t seem to be allowed, Ireland for one but I wasn’t aware of Germany.

    There are two solutions to this:

    1. Sign up for PayPal Payments Pro and then enable it in the Crossmember settings. PayPal Pro will allow for Credit Card Payments.
    2. Give me a couple more weeks and a new integration with Stripe (stripe.com) will go live. I’ve been a bit sluggish on this integration over the Christmas break but it’s pretty much all done with just a bit more testing to do. Stripe is one of the major credit/debit card payment providers online and their fees are reasonable.

    Hope that helps,
    Brian.

    OK, that’s good news, we’ll wait for Stripe. I can pass that on to the Irish & German members…

    A fair few members in general are wary of Paypal.

    Any news on “Stripe”. Another German customer having issues and one in Argentina, where they have apparently blocked Paypal for overseas payments of any kind 🙁

    Cheers,

    We’ve been using Stripe for a while now – really good. Makes life a lot easier than Paypals card option.

    Thanks Gene,

    I’m really pleased you like the integration and it’s working really well for you.

    Brian.
