When I wanted to subscribe to envato elements with PayPal, Inside Paypal dialog window, I had only the option to pay with a card, although I have a PayPal balance and It’s already the preferred way to pay!!
I always have the other option with other websites to pay, but not with envato!!
Can you plz help?
Will be because elements is a subscription and not a one off payment.
It should still use your balance first (at least it does for me – I use PayPal for my subscription too), but PayPal will force you to choose a real funding source just in case you don’t have enough balance when it renews.
Thank you Charlie
Do you know what is the reason for that?
and can we overcome this issue somehow?
Are per @baileyherbert explanation - PayPal don’t allow it because balance is a finite amount of money where as a subscription checks that more
Money can be paid after the balance is used up.
Again as @baileyherbert said - the balance should be used to cover the first (or more bependong how much you have) payments, but PayPal still needs to confirm the subscription status for when that ends
