Questions about Paypal?

PayPal provides the PCA with a simple and low-cost way to accept payments online. Transactions are at no cost to our customers.

When you hit the "Pay Now" or "Donate" buttons on our site, you as the customer can then use a credit card, a debit card, your personal PayPal account (if you already have one), or your banking/checking account of choice (if you have already set this up through a PayPal account).

To pay with a credit or debit card, look for the option at the LOWER RIGHT of the payment page when it appears.

Credit cards accepted include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.


The PayPal checkout process also provides you the option of setting up a PayPal account on the spot, if you'd like to do so.

It's free ... and is effectively like opening an additional checking account for yourself that exists only online. It can be linked to your other bank account(s) and credit card(s) if you wish. Find out more at

Note: if you already have a PayPal account -- which will be flagged when you enter your email address at checkout -- you will be required to login and complete the transaction from within your account. If you wish to avoid this for any reason, you can use an alternate email address at checkout (one different from the one you use as your PayPal account id).
