You don't need a paypal account to pay for a paypal invoice. If you receive a paypal invoice but would like to pay with a credit card, here's a step-by-step tutorial.
Your invoice would be a separate email with a subject as "(Vendor's Name) would like to be paid through paypal".Open this email, and click "Pay Now", and you will be prompted to the payment page.
This page describes what you are being charged for.Review the charges and click "continue"
Ignore tha big "log in to paypal" box on right of the next page. Instead, you will see a small link on the left side of the page next to the credit card logos that says "Continue" .Click it.
Here's the page where you fill out all of your credit card info(left side).After you fill out the details,click "Review Order and Continue" to finalize the payment, and you're done!
This is a very secure way to pay for your online purchases.It is more secure than giving your credit card number to the vendor over the phone or in person, because the vendor will not see your credit card info when you pay through this method.Also, even if you have a paypal account, you can still use this method to pay with credit card.
I hope you find this tutorial helpful!
