PayPal Payments Now Require PP Account

Hey Honeyfunders,

We have a bit of unfortunate news…it looks like PayPal is now requiring your gift givers to login or create an account to make a credit card payment. Today I checked it out and here’s what I found out:

The credit card form is exactly the same except at the end your guests will have to enter and confirm a password which will create a PayPal account for them. If they already have a PayPal account they will be asked to login exactly as before.

We’d love to hear from you whether this affects your decision to take credit card payments via PayPal. We’re considering some other options like accepting credit card payments as other registries do, and using Google checkout (which also requires an account). Your thoughts?

    If you accept credit cards, will the gift giver or the registerees be charged a fee to facilitate that? That’s mainly what I didn’t like about other honeymoon registry sites I looked at– them keeping a portion of the gifts I would receive.
