There are two types, the Standard free account and the Pro paid account. The difference is that with the Pro account the entire transaction takes place on your website, whereas with the Standard the customer is taken to the PayPal website to complete the purchase. In both cases customers can pay using PayPal or by credit card.

To set up, select Accept Credit Cards from the from the Checkout submenu:

In the Payment Gateway drop-down, choose your account type, Payments Pro or Standard (Free).
