Thank you Ray. Although I've developed in eCart and Paypal before, but for one who has not delved into this feature, can you explain to me in simple overview terms the work flow for how this function would integrate into eCart? For example, I developed a shopping cart using the client database of items, set it to check out through paypal as usual, using the website pro system... I presume all the calls and the functions were part of the API, ( but the sandbox was a TOTAL mess and waste of time. Could never get it to work).
So, how would eCart work in this situation. It makes a call to paypal but it has to ask for a preauthorization and not a purchase... so do I have to hand code that into the eCart call system? Not sure how knowing that there is an API means I know how to use it with WA's eCart... Is there a function within eCart panels, like setting the shipping amounts by weight and the shipper, or is it completely hand coded?
