Any reason why Faithlife can't or won't?  With PayPal, you don't have to use credit card and therefore avoid the hassle of card expiration or issuance of new card when you have Pre-Pubs on existing card.

With Apple Pay, when your card changes, some (maybe all?) banks that support Apple Pay will update the account for you and you can use the new card with Apple Pay immediately without the physical card still on its way via snail mail. More secure and convenient.

Being a business owner myself, I actually hate PayPal. They freeze money without good reason, the fees are way to high, and they also have a leftist/anti-Christian tendency.

I'd love to see FL implement bitpay though.

As far as I know, Faithlife does use PayPal - at least for international customers - but from what I gathered in prior forum discussions, for contractual reasons it does not work for PrePubs (since you promise to pay an amount at an uncertain future date for a future delivery - seems Paypal can't / won't / doesn't like to handle this).

The do, for the reason that credit cards are not widely used in some countries.

It should still be possible to purchase Logos credit with PayPal, and then pay PP and CP orders with that credit.
