Ok Jason, I am learning.
Right now I am getting the 10501 error This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration. I didn't sign up for a paypal pro membership yet because well I am still kinda fearful of doing so. If I sign up this 10501 code should not appear I guess.
I have a couple questions.
1. paypal direct. Will paypal generate the receipts for me or will I have to set this up.
2. I hear paypal direct will auto ssl my page or I think. Am I responsible to apply ssl.
