Clarification on T-Shirts Payments: You Do Not Need a PayPal Account

One poster writes, "Too bad only PayPal is accepted for payment."

This is a big misconception. You don't need a PayPal account to buy stuff, or to donate. You only need PayPay to receive money.

PayPal is how money gets put into my pocket, and into the pocket of RockNClothing. All you need to purchase via PayPal is a credit card.

You can also send a "e-check." Not sure how that works, but I've gotten donations via check in the past. The PayPal ordering screen should allow you that option under some drop-down menu. I think you just type in your bank's routing number and account number (the numbers at the bottom of your check) as well as the check number you intend to use and then hit "send." The electronic version of your check works just like a paper check. (Of course you have to void the specific check whose number you're using-- that check will be used, in electronic form. You can't use that specific check again, just like you can't use the same paper check twice.)

PayPal is like any other form of internet purchasing-- you just type in your credit card number and billing information and buy. Or donate. It's just an easy way for a small vendor, like myself, to accept credit-card payments or donations without having to subscribe to a credit-card merchant service or buy one of those credit-card-checking modem thingees.

It's no different than ordering from Amazon. Except whereas Amazon handles its own credit-card receipts of payments, I don't. PayPal handles them for me.

Just click the first payment type box -- the one that says you don't have a PayPal account -- and it will ask you for your billing address and credit card information. No PayPal account necessary and no PayPal account created.

Might as well pimp the shirt again. I'm worse than Suzanne Sommers. Click the pic to see the tee:
