What is the difference between Paypal Express and Paypal Direct?

Does one of them allow credit card transactions?

I found a screencast with the answer. If anyone searching finds this,

Paypal Express allows paypal users to enter their paypal user info and checkout from the paypal website (doesnt allow multiple address checkout)

Paypal Direct allows you to accept credit cards, so you could change the name of this to “credit card” and people wont know theyre using paypal
