Connecting to Paypal Web Payment Pro

Thanks for your reply Eric. I am a little confused as to what goes where here with regards to amending the API Credentials info. I assume that I am supposed to be amending the confirm.asp page and here i can see two behaviours that require login/credentials -

1. "Authentication for Paypal Express Checkout" and

2. "eCart Local CHeckout (ysl PP_PayProUK)".

I assume these are to link up with the two payment options of a) paying via paypal account and b) paying by credit card? Is that bit correct to start with?

I have requested what appear to be the Paypal Pro API Credentials from the Paypal site and I have the following info:

Credential API Signature
API Username
Signature ***signature - i havent included the precise info here!***
Request Date 5 May 2010 11:47:46 BST

I obviously also have a different login username and password that gets me into the paypal account too.

my question is what goes where!? i thought the above API info would be used to update in the "eCart Local Checkout (ysl PP_PayProUK)" behaviour but there arent the same headings - here it asks for "user", "vendor", "partner" and "password"?

in the "Authentication for Paypal Express Checkout" behaviour i am asked for the username, password and signature/vendor, which DOES seem to correspond with the API Credentials headings.

So have I got the wrong API info again?

If not, can you explain, in easy-terms (!) what information i should be putting into both behaviours? I do want the option that they can pay direct via paypal as well as credit card.

thanks very much in anticipation Eric
