alternative payment to paypal

I've had someone get in touch and want to purchase one of my items, but they dont have paypal. Is there a way to pay by credit card without having to have paypal? I dont have direct checkout as Im in the UK and we dont have it available on our etsy yet

Paypal has a guest shopper feature. Your buyer should be able to pay you with Paypal even if they don't have an account there.
With Paypal they don't need an account to be able to purchase by credit card. That is the great thing about Paypal
Yeah just have them do guest checkout since etsy kinda has us cornered with payment options. And since you can't do DC, guest payment is the best/only option.
hhm, there used to be a service I think it was called Xoom, simmilar to Paypal. but not sure if its still around. And if they don't have Paypal its highly unlikely they will have Xoom.
Another option is to go through a company that offers "virtual terminal" so you can accept direct credit card payments. SecurePay is one of them but there are more. Not sure though how fast you can set it up. Also not sure if Etsy will allow for that.
