What are Hip's payment options?

Buyers can purchase on Hip with PayPal, Credit/Debit Cards, Check, or Money Order. 


Generally, a buyer will need to have a PayPal account to pay via PayPal, but they may be able to pay using a card through PayPal without having a PayPal account.

To pay by PayPal, when checking out, select PayPal as the payment method. The buyer will then be directed to PayPal to complete the payment process.

Credit/Debit Card

To pay by Credit or Debit Card, when checking out, select "Credit or Debit Card" as the payment method. The buyer will then be directed to PayPal to complete the payment process, as all Credit or Debit Card transactions are processed by PayPal. However, a PayPal account will generally not be needed to pay by Credit or Debit Card, even through the PayPal website.

When directed to PayPal's website, scroll down and select the 'Pay with a Debit or Credit Card' option. If you do not see this option, click on the 'Sign Up' button, which should take you to 'PayPal Guest Checkout', where you can pay without a PayPal account. If you have any difficulty, please Contact Us at

Completing PayPal and Credit/Debit Card Transactions

After submitting payment through PayPal, including when paying by Credit or Debit Card, the buyer will be directed back to a confirmation page on Hip. Both Hip and PayPal will send the buyer and seller an email confirmation of the transaction.

As a buyer, if you are purchasing from multiple Sellers at once, you can checkout with up to 10 Sellers in a single transaction. Please note that shipping is calculated on a per-seller basis.

Pay Later with Check or Money Order

Some Sellers allow pre-approved buyers to pay for items after completing checkout, including paying by check or money order. To learn more about the Pay Later feature, please click here
