I want to signup for one of the pricing plans but when I'm taken to PayPal to submit payment, PayPal won't let me continue with the checkout process and directs me to contact the merchant (ABBYY OCR SDK). I'm trying to use my company's American Express card. Does ABBYY OCR SDK not accept AMEX?

The resolution was to signup for a PayPal account. Apparently the checkout procedure requires this even though I've made purchases via PayPal before without having an account. FYI in case anyone else encounters this issue.

Thank you so much for the information! Could you please write the error message you got during the purchasing process, if it is still possible? Our developers asked for it to fix the issue in the future.
