If you have tried to order web hosting services on Siteground, You know they don’t have Paypal payment system on their order page. This article will answer how to Pay using PayPal to Siteground for new and existing customers.
I did research to find out why they don’t accept Paypal. That is because Paypal charge big transaction fee and Paypal provide 180 days of refund guaranteed. In Siteground prospective they only provide 30 days money back guaranteed.
In order to stop PayPal fraud at Siteground, they don’t accept Paypal by default. But, they do accept PayPal payment on request.
Also, I wrote a Siteground review to help you make a better decision when it comes to purchasing a web hosting account.
