If orders are coming through your site without a phone number, they're likely PayPal Express Checkout orders.  There's a setting in your PayPal account which can require phone numbers, and this article will walk you through how to set it up!

  • Log in to your PayPal account
  • In the top-right corner, navigate to your PayPal Account Settings
  • On the page that follows, scroll down on the left-side menu and click on "Website payments" under the "Products & Services" section.
  • Click the blue word "Update" to the far-right of "Website preferences." 


  • From there, scroll down to the "Contact Telephone Number" section and select, "On (required Field)."  NOTE: if you select "On (Optional Field)," the buyer will not be required to enter their phone number.  To require the phone number, select the second option (designated "Required").


  • Click the "Save" button to save your account settings.

That's it!  Your PayPal Express Checkout orders will now require a customer phone number.  If you need help with anything, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team!
