Can I pay with PayPal to download elementary OS ?

1 Answer 1


The way to download and pay with Paypal is at the moment (October, 31, 2016):

  • Download the OS typing 0 in the "Custom" section; afterwards press "Purchase elementary OS".
  • Next to this you should click the "Get Involved" section located at the upper right position of your screen. Once there you will see different options to help elementary OS. After the "General Funding" section you have Paypal.

I hope elementary team will include Paypal in the Download area besides Card and Bitcoin as lots of users employ this payment method.

    I did not know that we can use Paypal to "purchase" elementary. Thanks for this one. Apr 7, 2017 at 15:39

    For the Card+Bitcoin combo, they are using Stripe's API, a PayPal competitor, so I am not sure if they are technically or legally allowed to include PayPal as an option for purchasing alongside Stripe. Apr 7, 2017 at 15:42
