    I spent much of the last hour trying to understand the brief message at the bottom of the PayPal checkout process.
    PayPal automatically allows me to:
    1) Pay with a registered credit card, or
    2) Sign up for PayPal Credit.
    Then, below the sign up for PayPal Credit is an option to Pay and Subscribe.
    May I respectfully suggest that Pay and Subscribe to the Classic Camp Stoves Forum would be far less ambiguous.
    I certainly did not want to become embroiled in PayPal's Credit operation.
    I even spent 6 minutes with a PayPal tech support employee who finally concluded that my credit card was being rejected.
    In desperation, I clicked on Pay and Subscribe and it worked, thank goodness.

    Unfortunately the format of the Paypal site is outside of my control.

    I'm sorry you had to spend so long getting to the bottom of it.

    Many thanks for your support.

    Have to agree it's a bit confusing even for normal payments.
