Hi

I am interested in purchasing 2 Sims but have read its preferable to use PayPal.

I used to have a Paypal account but not used lately as I keep getting a message saying I need to update my Paypal with more personal info like name, address, phone number and date of birth and also to add a photo for ID.

I refuse to do this as I have seen many people being scammed by this.

May I just use my debit card instead?

Dave

You can pay by PayPal without logging in, which has been done by people on here before.

There is no way to pay without going through PayPal, but you can do so as a guest without having to log in.

Are you definitely picking the 'guest' option and not logging in?

When using it as a guest it will try and get you to create an account, have you unticked the box for this?

When I select the routes it asks me to click on the first image then the second but this doesnt have a select guest option

Am I doing something wrong?

When you click on "Pay by Debit or Credit Card" what happens?

I havent yet as I thought I would ask for advice first as i have read on other parts of the website that PayPal is the only method of paying

I was going to wait to see what help and advice i was going to get first

That button allows your Paypal to charge your credit/debit card, and then PayPal pay SimSig (less a %age).

I know that it's not really any of my business, but I'd be interested to know which two routes you have bought.
