Does it mean the seller no longer is active if there's no paypal option to select when checking out?

I’ve, tried a couple of different sellers to buy MS Office 2013 Pro. However, when I select it and then try to check-out, the only payment method available is “Amazon Pay”, no PayPal!

If I click on the Amazon Pay method, it says that the seller doesn’t accept that payment method.

Does this mean the seller no longer is active?

Hi Wingclip! Sellers can choose which payment options they offer. So in the case of you only seeing “Amazon Pay,” that means that this particular seller only offers Amazon Pay.

Bonanzamark did you read the question? She said it said the seller didn’t take Amazon or PayPal.

Did you try to contact the seller and ask them. They may be unaware of the settings they have.

Not necessarily, I would be cautious and check the Seller’s profile to see when they were logged in last (active) and check their feedback.

If no flags come up I would contact seller and let them no payment method worked, they may have tech issues in setting up the link to Amazon payments.
I believe Amazon changed some Payment methods a while back and this could be the results of that change.

Be wary of any offer to pay for the software by any method that doesn’t protect you. Most Seller’s are on the up and up, but some are not.
