Account Optional
With PayPal Account Optional turned on, your customers who are new to PayPal can make 
credit card payments without signing up for a PayPal account. This setting is available in the 
Profile of Premier and Business accounts.
PayPal Account Optional is turned on by default for all U.S. Premier and Business accounts. 
Your customers who already have PayPal accounts will go through the same Website 
Payments experience to which they're accustomed, which is shown in the  How It Works  
section of the Creating Buy Now and Donations Buttons section of this manual. 
Your new customers (or existing customers who are new to PayPal) will go through a 
checkout that doesn't require PayPal signup, but they will have that option available after 
completing the payment. Whether customers sign up for a PayPal account or not, you can set 
your Buy Now, Donations, and Shopping Cart Buttons to return them to your website, and you 
will still receive the same notification emails as in the current checkout flow.

The setting you choose for PayPal Account Optional affects all of your existing and new Buy 
Now, Donations, and Shopping Cart buttons for customers who are new to PayPal. Your 
customers who already have PayPal accounts will see no change in their checkout 
experience they will log in as usual at the time of payment and complete the transaction from 
within the PayPal account.
