📘 Note:
Since PayPal does not support Chinese accounts to pay for purchases in China, you can contact users located outside of China to place orders on your store to ensure the usability of the linked PayPal account.Frequently Asked Questions: Customers use eCheck. Due to the long transfer cycle for international transfers, inconsistencies with the store order status could occur. You can choose to set up eCheck if it isn’t available.
