How to Pay a PayPal Invoice if You Don’t Have a PayPal Account

You can pay a PayPal invoice even if you don’t have a PayPal account. The platform allows invoices to be settled with credit and debit cards. This brief step-by-step guide will show you how to pay a PayPal invoice that’s been emailed to you.

Step 1

Check your inbox. The email will be sent by the organization via PayPal.


Step 2

The email will contain the PayPal invoice. Click on “View and Pay Invoice” to be taken to the PayPal website.


Step 3

The Invoice Details screen will give you additional information on the product and the organization that is billing you. Click “Pay” at the top of the invoice to proceed. Please note that Manuscript Mentoring will always use to issue an invoice.


Step 4

Click “Pay with Credit or Debit Card” on the popup window.*

* If you have an adblocker installed on your browser (such as AdBlock or AdGuard), please ensure that you’ve whitelisted the PayPal website; adblocking software may prevent the popup window from appearing.


Step 5

Fill out your details on the second popup window and click “Pay Now”. Your credit or debit card will then be billed and, voila, you’ll have purchased a product!
