You do NOT have to have a PayPal account, nor are required to make online donations via PayPal.  PayPal is just one of the payment methods that is accepted.  There are several other payment methods for making online donations on Edbacker.

On any Edbacker campaign, after you have entered your personal information as a donor (on the page after clicking the "Give" button), you will notice a yellow "PayPal Checkout" button at the bottom. 

Aside from PayPal, other payment methods listed are:

  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Discover Card
  • American Express

You also have the ability to make donations via any Bank Debit card, that is linked to a credit card (IE - Visa Debit, MC Debit, etc).  

After clicking the yellow PayPal Checkout Button, a PayPal popup screen appears (see screenshot below).  If you choose to pay for your donation with a PayPal account, you can enter your PayPal online account login details (email address and password) here and follow the prompts to complete the payment.

Or, to pay with your debit or credit card, click the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" button at the bottom of the popup.  

On the next screen, enter PayPal guest checkout information (IE - your debit or credit card information), and further follow the prompts to complete your donation.
