Paypal Web Payments Pro

I wonder if any of you can assist.

I was initially looking at getting a merchant account but having second thoughts.

Paypal would be an easier way to go (I think) but I'm not keen on capturing credit card details direct on my own website as not sure how my database would handle credit card details or about implementing SSL.

Does anyone have pointers here?

You don't store any of the CC details in your database.

If you don't want to use SSL or capture credit cards directly on your site, then use paypal standard and none of that is necessary.

OK - that helps. However Paypal Standard take a much larger % per transaction.

Are there are guides on implementing SSL with eCart? SSL is something I've never had any experience of using.

There is some docs on SSL here:


As for standard taking a larger percentage remember that the pro charges a monthly fee that the standard does not so unless you meet that breaking point for sales standard would cost less overall.
