Does InMotion accept payments through PayPal?
A lot of people may actually think than InMotion does not accept payments through PayPal. The reason for this wrong idea is that unlike other hosting companies where you are automatically given the choice whether you want your bill payments through credit card or PayPal during the registration process, the PayPal option can never be found in the Billing Section during the registration process. The Paypal option being not visible in the check out page has prompted a lot of people to think that InMotion does not accept payments via PayPal.
However, nothing is farther than the truth. The truth is that InMotion does accept payments via PayPal although the option has remained invisible in their checkout page. A few years back, that idea would have been through but InMotion started accepting payments via PayPal since early 2013 but has not made the option public, so far.

Why is PayPal not included in the InMotion payment options?
The reason why PayPal is not included in the InMotion payment options is cost savings. You see, although PayPal requires no membership fees, it does charge 4% of the total bill while credit card companies only charge between 0.5% to 1%. This means that InMotion saves up to $5 per bill if clients use credit or debit card. The amount saving the InMotion gets is invested on their web hosting infrastructure and customer service to a better web hosting service.
