Bought Item without want to use paypal

I bought an item without having my paypal information handy...and now I want to go and use paypal but there seems to be no option for choosing the pay on the Etsy site - just "contact the seller" to pay...I'm new to Etsy, and didnt know if there was a way to pay using paypal once I've technically bought the item.

Any ideas?

Thank you!!

check the email you got from etsy when you bought the item. there is a link to paypal in the email.

welcome to etsy!
Click on 'Your Etsy' at the top of the site. Then click 'Purchases' in the left-hand sidebar. Here you will see a list of everything you've bought on Etsy. Click the 'receipt' link to the right of the listing you need to pay for. The receipt page will have a blue & white PayPal button on it (available until payment has been received). Click that to complete the payment through PayPal.

Welcome to Etsy! :)
Does the seller accept Paypal?
Good catch, cottoncandycastles.

meganmumford, each seller determines what methods of payment they will accept. PayPal is by far the most common, but some sellers opt not to accept it. Make sure the listing you purchased had PayPal as an acceptable payment method.
Wow! Thanks for all the responses so quickly! I did all those options, but I think the problem is that when i bought the item, I choose "other" for the payment I want to go and use there an option to change my payment method after I already chose "other"?
You can contact your seller and request a paypal invoice and pay it that way.

Unfollow username?
