How to send a form on page load

Ok Ray. Not sure If I have the ability to do this so where do I start with this. Should I be creating a system with eCart? To explain my required process. the user can visit our website to become members by completing an application form which includes username and password creation. I custom built this form with the help of 'Databridge'. it is on submitting the form, the user is then directed to a confirmation page where there basic details are displayed with the price of membership. It is from here I want the user to be taken to a payment system ( So as you suggested, pp express checkout ). Subsequently the form is sent to a database and in particular a value of 'form complete' is sent to the 'status' column. As I described previously I want this column to be updated to 'Paid' or 'Cancelled' depending on the result of the transaction. The reason I need these values is to secure access to the members area of our web-site to 'Paid' members only. I was previously trying to achieve my goal by using paypal buttons which is probably why I was getting stuck with this.

I have eCart but I am completely lost on Where to go after creating an eCart object and what components I need and how I would use my current application form and database. Plus a lot of the pages created look to be pointing to creating product pages but we provide a service and so need a single option to purchase, therefore add to cart isn't necessary, we just need subscribe. is this easy to customise?

This might require a premium support ticket if so thats fine just say and I will put in a request.

Thanks in advance.
