"USING PAYPAL AT THE MTA ONLINE STORE"
I hope everyone is staying safe from COVID 19.
I have a couple of comments or requests when you shop at the MTA Online Store. The MTA online store is up and running fine. Some sizes have been sold out on the new t-shirts. So, if you still want one, check them right away before more sizes run out. There is also a misunderstanding of how PayPal works in completing payments for an order.
There have been a few incomplete orders this summer, where an order is entered and then not paid for. When you purchase at the MTA Store, you need to complete the payment in Step 4 by clicking on the PayPal - BUY-NOW button. It will take you to the PayPal "Login" screen. If you leave this screen because you do not have a PayPal account, your order will error out as incomplete, and your Order Number becomes VOID. You can pay through PayPal WITHOUT having an account with them.
Here is an example: A buyer reported that she stopped or canceled her purchase when she reached the PayPal website. She canceled because she did not have a PayPal account. I explained that she didn't have to have an account with PayPal; she can finish paying as a "GUEST." PayPal acts as a "Secure Payment Processing Host," where a buyer can choose and use a preferred method of payment, whether it be a debit or a credit card. You will find BELOW the PayPal Login Box, there is an option to "Pay with a Debit or Credit card." If you click on that option, you will go directly to a screen in PayPal to complete your payment without having a PayPal account.
If you have any questions, please contact me using the info below. I would be happy to assist you with the Online Store or other website issues.
Thank you, and Stay Safe.
