My site is based in Luxembourg. I need to be able to accept credit card payments from people who do not have a PayPal account and do not wish to open a PayPal account. It seems that PayPal Pro is not available in Luxembourg. I have a PayPal Business Account with PayPal Website Payments Standard. If I try to use a S2 Pro Form, when the user submits a credit card payment, the transaction is rejected with message “Error #10565. Merchant country unsupported”.
I have found that I can accept credit cards by switching ON the “PayPal Account Optional” switch in my PayPal Profile (which is hard to find and not well documented – it’s in My Selling Tools > Website Preferences) and removing all the other payment options in the S2 short code. But it cannot be used for recurring payments and although the user can pay by card without opening a PayPal account, it is not clear to the user that she will be able to do so, because the payment button at the end of the S2 Pro Form says “Check out with PayPal” and only after doing so does the user discover that using a credit card is also an option. Even then the PayPal form to do so is sandwiched between exhortations to open a PayPal account.
