Questions about PayPal at Simpsen

Why do I have to use PayPal to pay for purchases?

Simpsen allows sellers to build an online store as simply and easily as possible.  Often, one of the most difficult and complicated parts of opening a store is setting up the necessary accounts to accept credit and debit card payments.  By using PayPal, sellers can easily accept credit and debit card payments on their stores without the complications associated with a traditional merchant account.

I don’t have a PayPal account.  Do I have to sign up in order to purchase items from a store that uses the Simpsen platform?

No.  You do not have to sign up for a PayPal account to use PayPal for your purchases.  You will have to provide your payment information to PayPal, just as you would for any online purchase, but you do not have to register for a PayPal account.


Founder and CEO of Simpsen. Before that, I spent 20+ years in higher education building BI/DW, project & portfolio management and project governance. Best part was investing in a bunch of brilliant tech folks who have gone on to do incredible work in their fields.
