What is the difference between PayPal Standard and Express?

If you use PayPal Express Checkout, when your customers check out, they will be directed to a page that requires them to log into their PayPal account or create a new one. Therefore, this is the best option if you anticipate that most of your customers either have a PayPal account or will sign up for an account on checkout. The connection is also more secure as everything goes throw their API and payments notifications always work (Paypal notifies the store that the payment was made and the order changes the status to Paid) as the payment is only complete after the user gets back to your store.

If you use PayPal Website Payments Standard, when your customers check out, they will be directed to a page that allows them to log into their PayPal account or pay by credit card without having to sign up for a PayPal account. This is the best option if you anticipate that most of your customers will not want to sign up for a PayPal account. Not so secure and payment notifications not always work, as the user can pay and leave the Paypal page before getting back to the store.

Do my clients need a PayPal account to buy from my store?

Your clients do not need a PayPal account to pay your orders. What happens is that if they have a PayPal account they'll firstly see the option to pay via PayPal.

In your case, you probably login into PayPal and then made a test purchase in your Vendder store with the same browser.

If you delete your cookies (or use a different browser that has never logged into PayPal) you will firstly see the fields to add your credit card information at PayPal instead of the PayPal login.

My store's Shipping taxes are not displayed at PayPal?

If the order's shipping costs is not displayed at PayPal after checking out and you get a "Estimate shipping and tax" option instead you might have your PayPal badly configured.

This happens when you enable shipping costs, sales tax, or value-added tax calculation on your PayPal Premier or Business PayPal's account.

Please disable it according to the following directions:
