powerstore paypal express

Originally Said By: Eric Mittman
  Payments Pro is composed of two parts, Express Checkout is where you pay on PayPals site, and Direct Pay is where you enter the cc info directly on your site. They are both considered local checkouts since the user will return to your site and you will know the status of the transaction when it occurs.

To make use of Express Checkout by itself you would need to enter the API credentials into the Globals file for Payments Pro, then you would need to edit the checkout page to now show the checkout form and it's submit button. Instead you should only see the pay with PayPal button on the page. If you have any trouble making the checkout form not display on this page post back with a copy of your current checkout page and I will show you how you can do this.  

Hi Eric, I am also trying to set up a store with paypal express only (client does not want to do paypal pro.) I am not sure what all I need to change...can I leave the globals setting at "1" for paypal, and then just enter the user id, password and signature for the client? In a couple of the forum posts, it looks like there is a place or an option to "choose paypal express only"? Is this a new feature of Powerstore 3, or is there a way to make that choice in Powerstore 2? The only thing I found so far was in the globals file, and that seems to only offer the option for paypal pro?

Then you mention editing the checkout page...I am attaching (I think I am--haven't tried this before here) a copy of the checkout page, and would appreciate the help.


I am using powerstore 2 on a windows vista machine. I have installed all the known issues fixes on my version of PS2, which included the paypal express fixes.
