Necessity of Paypal account

Do I need to be registered with Paypal in order to use credit card payment?

No, you do not need a Paypal account for credit card payments. Although payments are handled by Paypal, you do not have to register with them if you do not have an account there yet.

You can find a note saying "You do not have a Paypal account" at the lower left corner if you do not have a Paypal account and do not want to register on their website.

What is VAT?

What is value added tax (VAT)?

Value added tax (VAT) is a form of consumption tax.

NameRobot has to charge EU VAT on all goods and services provided to:

  • all customers from within the European Union who do not have a EU VAT ID
  • all customers from Germany. 

You are not charged with VAT if you are:

  • a customer from within the European Union and do have a EU VAT ID
  • a customer from outside the European Union.

NameRobot's intelligent system calculates if VAT needs to be charged or not, based on your location and status.
