Guest checkout for PayPal allows your customers to pay via PayPal in
your store without signing in to an account. You can set up guest
checkout for Standard or Express Checkout.

To enable guest checkout in PayPal:

  1. Sign in to your PayPal account.

2. Click the Profile icon at the top right.
3. Click Profile and settings.
4. Click My Selling Tools or My Selling Preferences under My Profile
on the left.
Note: This button might differ depending on your PayPal account.
5. Click Update next to Website Preferences.
6. Select On under PayPal Account Optional.
7. Click Save.

Note: If you are unable to see this setting in your PayPal account,
please contact PayPal support and ask them to enable it for you.


If your customers are unable to use the Guest Checkout option, it may
be due to one of the following reasons:

Incorrect email address: Your customer entered an incorrect email
address or an email address that PayPal was unable to verify.

Location is not supported: The ability to allow customers to pay via
PayPal through guest checkout is determined by your local PayPal
organization's security and risk management policies.

Fraud prevention measures: PayPal has fraud prevention measures in
effect for all transactions and therefore, in some cases, PayPal might
prevent a customer from using the guest checkout if they feel that the
transaction poses a certain risk.
