How to Integrate eCart5 with PayPal

How to Integrate eCart5 with PayPal

I am using WebAssist's eCart5 shopping cart. When I utilize the Checkout wizard, I'm taken through a series of screens based on an initial response, "Accept credit cards and PayPal". My desire, at this time, is to only allow PayPal to process the payment transaction (customer can input credit card info or use PayPal account INSIDE PayPal). I have signed up for PayPal Website Payments STANDARD.
Inside the eCart5 checkout wizard, there are a couple of questions, 1) PayPal member id, 2) Sandbox testing server. Question 1: If I want to use the Sandbox testing server, would I enter the PayPal member id (email address) that was given to me when I signed up for the Sandbox or do I use my Live PayPal member id?
After completing the eCart 5 Checkout wizard, the checkout.php, checkout_success.php, checkout_failure.php, and confirm.php pages are created. When I select the eCart5 "Checkout" button in my shopping cart, I am taken to the checkout.php page where there is an Express PayPal button (not interested in using) and Billing questions for the customer (not interested in using). Question 2: How do I re-direct my eCart5 Checkout button to the PayPal Payment Login Page (thus bypassing the eCart5 checkout.php page)? Do I have to create a PayPal API button for Checkout and insert it in my Shopping Cart? If so, how do I obtain an API user name from WebAssist? Do I have to download the PayPal ecommerce extension (I'm currently signed up for the Extension suite)?
