OK.. I'm sorry to be so dense about all this... here's what has happened so for :
To start, we are selling some hard copy books and some ebooks.
At first, I tried setting up the checkout with our SSL, and then sending to PayPal after order details have been collected. This worked BUT it opened first with the option of credit card — and even though we have an SSL (largely to collect customer info and not credit card info) — and I want it to go to PayPal and not ask for credit card info on our site.
Then I tried setting up without SSL and now it goes directly to PayPal on checkout, which is great except for when we sell hard copy books that need shipping.
I want customers to save their orders and login and then be able to download the digital file they've purchased.
Knowing now what I'm trying to do, can you suggest a way through this confusion?
Thanks very much for your help,
