Apologies if this isn't posted in the correct place.

I just ordered an Olight a little while ago. They seem to be pushing PayPal an awful lot but I just used a credit card. Then later an email arrives from PayPal $XX has been paid and that I should open a PP account. It also said the charge will appear as PayPal/Olight.

Now I do have a PP account, but I haven't used it much in the last couple of years. The credit card used for Olight isn't the one attached to the account. So why the PayPal/Olight thing? After I get some sleep, I'll check PayPal to see if they actually handled the transaction and rolled this card in to my PP account. I do not approve (if that's what happened)

If I had opted to check out with PP, this would all make sense. But I deliberately avoided it.

I suspect they use PayPal as the processor even for CC transactions. Which would explain that PayPal receipt.
