The PayPal Virtual Terminal service allows merchants with a PayPal business account to process credit cards using a web browser.

This is a seed article. You can help HTYP grow by watering it.

One minor disadvantage of this service over other credit card processing services is that you can only post refunds within 60 days of the original transaction; there is no facility to post credit to an arbitrary credit card. However, this should be a very rare necessity, and you can always transfer money to a checking account and refund the money by check. If the customer has a PayPal account, you can also send money that way.
