    Just mess around, PayPal can be super weird. You'll find a solution, I'm sure.

    Sorry i am completely new to this but originally I thought you would just come to this site and order the phone, but it seems it's abit more complicated? So I have to get an invite to buy this phone/any other way? So can someone tell why it's like the way it is?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the info about PayPal. I was wondering if an account needed to be made if and when I get an invite

    Look for it at the very bottom of PayPal checkout page.

    This has been discussed many times in the forums, there's even a statement from OnePlus on why the invite system exists - search the forums and/or look in the Announcements sub-forum.

    I messing around about 5 hours, but no solution for this Guest checkout issue. Used different browsers but nothing.
    PayPal at the very bottom gives only "Create a PayPal account"
    9 hours left and my invitation expires. So i perfectly understand why PayPal is "F**ing" :)
    If you have solution please share it :)

    What's wrong with creating a PayPal account and adding your Credit/Debit card to the PayPal account? If you've already claimed the invite and placed the order then it doesn't expire (in the short term) and you do have time to resolve this problem so you can complete the payment for the phone. ;)

    I have PayPal account, but when i try to checkout i always get Error message:
    "We're sorry, PayPal xxx accounts cannot ship purchases to xxx.""
    So to solve this issue is very important to me :)
    And this thread is about how to do it with Guest Checkout Feature which like you can see in the screenshot does not exist :)

    I also have this problem.

    I was able to create a ******* US Paypal account but they are requiring a US # in order to checkout.

    So close yet so far. Really pissed. 20 more hours to go.

    OPO should have their own checkout page where they can accept credit cards. Paypal's transaction fees are huge and it would be a win-win if they got rid of this system.

    As I don't know where the "xxx" countries are I can't comment on that but do your addresses match in your OnePlus account and is the delivery address in one of the launch countries (as mentioned in the first post)? You should be able to add different shipping/delivery addresses in your PayPal account, have you checked if you can do that?

    I understand what this thread is about but if you'd searched the forums you'd have seen the "Guest" facility in PayPal seems to be no longer available.

    Have you also taken a look at this thread for further information: https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/buy-the-original-oneplus-one-from-anywhere-in-the-world.12199/

    Solved. Simple created new PayPal account with same information where OPO must be shipped and attached to it my Credit/Debit Card ( of course before this action card was disconnected from my old acc) and PayPal allowed me to pay ;)

    Thank you for your help and your time :)
