You can use Authorize.net or PayPal to accept direct credit card payments!
 

1. Authorize.netAccepts all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express in your Wix Store.
 

2. Paypal.com: You can set up your shopping cart to accept direct credit cards payments from users without prompting them to sign into their PayPal account. The user would still be directed to a PayPal page, however, they would not be prompted to sign in.

 

Note: The ability to allow customers to pay via PayPal through Guest Checkout is determined by your local PayPal organization. For some countries, the customer will be required to create a PayPal account before they will be able to pay. For more information, click here.

 

To set up your Online Store payment options: Click your Product Gallery to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Manage Store > select the Payment & Currency tab.

Under Payment Method, click the drop down menu to select a method > enter the required information > click Save.

 

Note: Make sure that the Paypal Account Optional feature is turned on in your Paypal account. To learn more, please click here or contact Paypal directly.
 

Note: In order to use PayPal as the merchant account for your online store, you will need to have a Business or Premier PayPal account.

    I already add the PayPal merchant account and when someone try to purchase they get the following message.

    The seller accepts encrypted website payments only. You cannot pay the seller through un-encrypted buttons. Please contact your seller for more details.

    HOW WE CAN FIX THE CHECKOUT LINK TO BE ENCRYPTED SO THE PAYPAL WILL WORK WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM

      Hi,

      Unfortunately we do not have an encrypted option at the moment. Please change your Paypal settings to accept un-encrypted data.

    I would like you to bring some sense and finality to the questions about using PayPal to take payments from customers using only their credit card and not having to login to PayPal or sign up with PayPal.  Please do not ay consult other "best answers" as part of other threads or however you state it.  Give a precise answer or two here.

    It seems your wix add to cart buttons do not send the right data to PayPal and if they did, it would work as required.  In a previous post to wix in this thread or topic, this was the response from PayPal:

    "I checked your website (www.yovogue.co.uk), and the funds you are receiving on your PayPal account, and it appears that your have a "3rd party shopping cart" button (by this they will mean wix is a third party shopping cart) on your website, but funds are being processed through PayPal as "Express checkout."  (The wix user told you he set his merchant account up with PayPal as Business which does not want to receive the "Express" request.)

    When using an "Express checkout." feature via PayPal, your customer (the user of the wix site) must log in or create a PayPal account to make a payment, thus from the word itself as "Express checkout."

    This 'possibly' explains why your (the wix user) customer does not have an option to buy from your website using only their card as a Guest.

    To allow a card funded payment (without logging in on PayPal) from your customers, please change your PayPal payment solution from your website from "Express checkout" to "PayPal website payment standard as a Shopping cart button."

    You can advise your web developer to update the payment solution on your website.

    (The PayPal response to the wix user also stated the following)

    Then, here is how you can create a "Shopping cart button" and integrate on your website:

    Go to www.paypal.com.au and log in to your account. 
    Click 'Profile' near the top of the page. 
    Click 'My selling tools.' 
    Click 'Update' beside 'PayPal buttons.' 
    Click 'Create new button' under 'Related Items.' 
    Select 'Shopping Cart' for the button type. 
    Customise your button and click 'Create Button.' 
    Click 'Select Code,' and copy and paste the button code into your HTML code. 
    You should create a separate 'Add to Cart' button for each item you're selling on your website."

    It seems that wix need to check their interface from wix to PayPal when the Checkout button is pressed to ensure it does not send an "Express" request.

    Will you now tell us if the Wix PayPal solution for credit card payments only does work and if not what will you do about it?  (Do not say well Authorize.net works - Wix has been claiming PayPal works for credit cards only<)

      Hey,

      The PayPal getaway that Wix offers allows you to accept direct credit cards payments from users without prompting them to sign into their PayPal account.

      Did you try to set up your PayPal getaway and it did not work properly?

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

      Why don't you Wiz support people read your own forums and threads to see what many people have said? Also, what does "PayPal getaway" mean which you wrote? 

      The facts are, which many of us are telling you, that Wix does not connect to PayPal correctly to allow credit card payments without logging into PayPal or registering with PayPal when we configure PayPal correctly with their Business merchant account setup.

      Don't keep saying it works when it does not.

      I have figured it out now. I looked up other providers similar to Wix and what they do better than Wix is provide a step by step instruction on how to set up PayPal including clearing the Cookies on the computer's browser to show the PayPal Checkout screen the way a buyer would see it. Why don't Wix put some effort into writing up a complete instruction about how to set up PayPal as good customer service?

    I am based in South Africa and would like to accept credit card payments.

    We have something called payfast here but its not an option on your site. Is there anyway of adding this option?

    Or can you suggest an option other than the offline payments that will work for me as I cant seem to find one.

    Many thanks

    PayPal does not allow customers to use their credit card without prompting them to create a paypal account. I have tried it with someone's wix online store, after I clicked to pay, I have been directed to the paypal website and I had two options. "Pay with my paypal account" and "Create a paypal account", as you can check from the screenshot below.

    So annoying. 

    I cannot use "Authorize.net" either, since it does not assist my country (Turkey).

    Any suggestions for me to create an online store which supports paying with credit cards?

    Thanks!

      Hi,

      We have added an offline payment option to the Wix Online Store, please see if any of these payment options are relevant to your requirements.
       

      Offline payments enable you to accept payment options other than credit cards (i.e. cash, check, bank transfer, wire transfer, etc.). When a customer places an order from your online store, you will receive an email containing the order information and their contact details. Contact them to finalize the order and arrange the method of payment.

      Your online store customers do not need to have a PayPal account in order for them to make a payment of their purchase.
      On the other hand, you, a store owner, must open a premium/business account with PayPal in order to receive payments via your store.
