How to purchase using a guest account:
By following these simple steps you can easily purchase online via eBay quickly and easily without having to register and setup a PayPal account.
Step 1: Product selection
Here I’ve selected one of our Screw Anchor range for this explanation, once on this page press the “Buy it now” Button” and proceed to the next stage.
Step 2: Guest account selection
eBay will next prompt either a log in, for someone with an account available or a Guest account option. By clicking onto the Guest option you will be taken through to the next purchase stage.
Step 3: Purchase Review
Here you will be requested to enter your postal address and to ensure that your product selection and other variables such as postage address etc are correct.
Step 4: Payment information
eBay will ask for you to sign into PayPal, obviously for this example we will be taking the “Don’t have a PayPal account” option to continue as a guest.
The next prompt after this will be for your credit/debit card information to take payment, it will once again confirm your transaction total as well as billing and contact information.
Step 5: Payment Finalization/Confirmation
The final page of the transaction process will complete the purchase of the selected products and debit the account in question, the page re-iterates the postal address and any other vital information for a final check. Upon clicking the “Confirm Payment” button your purchase will be complete.
