Hiya All,

Just a quickie to let you know that you don't NEED a PayPal account to to buy stuff through the Rods 'n' Sods Shop.

You CAN pay with funds from a PayPal account if you have one but it's not a requirement. PayPal are there to process credit/debit card payments as well, much the same as if you buy something in a shop they use a merchant processing service to take the card payments.

In order to pay by card without setting up an account you need to do the following.

When you click through to pay for your order you will come to the PayPal front page as below.

Click on the "Continue" button to go through to the card gateway.

Fill out the page as you would with a normal online purchase and then click on "Review Order and Continue".

Check all is ok and then submit your order

The payment gateway through PayPal is a secure system and encrypted so your card details are safe (I never get to see any of them ). In paying this way you DO NOT create a PayPal account so no worries there

Hope that helps
