Hi, I was curious about the payment options when it comes to PayPal. I know it says you can pay with debit or credit cards, but If I set up with PayPal will it give the credit card logo option as payment method? I ask this because when there is ONLY a PayPal button, none of my customers know that they can use PayPal as a payment method without having a PayPal account and cause a lot of loss in sales.
I am currently a member of hostgator/wordpress and will be transferring my domain here and wanted to ask before I confrim my membership plan :)

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