        This is a great idea because with paypal we can have our local currency, not only the ones you have activated!

        google Wallet please. I will not use paypal, but that should certainly be an available option along with Google Wallet and I don't know what else. Amazon? I have a very low volume of sales, so my money sits at SM forever...

        this would be a fantastic option for buyers and I believe would benefit sales, a good increase for SmugMug and sellers.

        As a surf photographer, I often travel to remote areas and countries. Many prospective clients do not own credit cards so they don't even consider buying anything. Pay Pal may make it possible for them to purchase.

        There are plenty of people, me included that usually wont purchase from a site if PayPal isn't accepted. Please add it as an option for the checkout

        I'm the same I usually dont order from sites that don't have PayPal as an option to pay. I was hoping there was a Paypal option at checkout. I just went thru my site to order a print, everything we as clear easy to follow. Selected the print, the materials the mounting options, just really need Paypal at checkout. Adding the code and all that not only seems to be a chore on the some of the sites that did it that way looked chessy. Please a Paypal option at checkout.

        Most of the time I won't order from a site unless it accepts Paypal. Please integrate this feature. I am running a trial of Smugmug right now and the lack of a Paypal payment option during checkout could be a deal breaker. I'm not looking to run orders through my own Paypal account, just provide it as a payment method during checkout.

        If this is implemented, please have a way to disallow it.

        I will not support paypal on any of my sites. I believe they are crooks.

        I fail to understand why SmugMug doesn't have a built-in facility for photos to be sold to customers via PayPal. Is this company nuts or what? Most internet shoppers (at least in Europe) use PayPal. So come on SmugMug - get real!

        Yes please paypal would make it a lost easier for my NZ customers. At least they would be able to pay in NZ dollars.

        I would encourage the management of Smugmug to seriously bump up the discussion of implementing Paypal as a method of payment for prints, this will increase business for everyone !!!

        I've just gotten a few inquiries from South America. They want to buy, but prefer to use PayPal. Please do so right away!

        Why isn't this planned yet? This would make Smugmug a WORLDWIDE gallery. If I saw photos from anyone online and it required a credit card, I simply will not buy it. Who knows how much business is being lost by the fact Paypal is missing?
