We have both a big announcement and a big apology to make. Since we launched Vimeo Plus back in October of 2008, the number one feature request has been PayPal support. And we thought, sure, that can't be that hard, let's totally add PayPal. Well, it turns out it was slightly more complicated than we thought, and without going into the juicy details (which are nice and juicy I will tell you) we have finally integrated PayPal, finally.
First, we are VERY SORRY it took so long. But second, we are VERY EXCITED to finally offer our members PayPal support for both Plus and PRO accounts as well as Music Store purchases. We know not everyone has a credit card and we apologize for not offering an option for those members for so long. So if you were waiting to purchase Plus or PRO until this clandestine day, your wait is now over!
Some questions you may have:
Wait, is this really happening? This isn't a cruel joke, is it?
Nope, this is real life, people.
Can I switch to PayPal if I have already made a purchase using a credit card?
No, if you have already made a purchase of Plus or PRO then you cannot switch to PayPal until you renew your yearly membership. At that time you can edit your account and enter your PayPal information.
Thanks for your patience.
