There's a way to pay for a purchase with a cc via PP without having an actual PP account. Does anyone know if that works if you send a customer an invoice, or do you have to check out through a venue?

Yes. They are prompted to either join Paypal or pay by credit card.

Yes, you can send them an invoice via their email and they can make a few payments that way without signing up for Paypal.

why not try their email address and send an invoice with request payment? if they can pay without an account i suppose they can then give their cc number to paypal and maybe it would process?? i should hope so.

Yes, I did it this week to a lady who didn't have a paypal acc and wanted to upgrade her shipping to a faster service after she had already placed her order. She had paid by cc through the checkout, then filled out her cc details again on the invoice I sent her for the extra shipping fees. She said it was very easy.
