, you will see a yellow or gold box that says LOG IN. Directly below that you will see these words underlined: 
PAY WITH DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD OR BILL ME LATER.  It is very, tiny, blue writing.  Look close because the words are a link.  If you are on a cellphone or a tablet, it is really small, but it is there,  right below the question "Forgot email or password?"

4. Click on the words
PAY WITH DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD OR BILL ME LATER  and it will open up another option to pay in a few seconds.  You will NOT need to create a PayPal account at all.  You will see a new drop down menu, with a payment form for credit cards.
