PayPal Express only - Best Way to do it?

PayPal Express only - Best Way to do it?

I want to set up PayPal Express as the only gateway for a client who doesn't want to use PayPal Pro - what is the best way to do this - step by step?

What option do I choose in the wizard?

Is it possible to go straight from the 'cart.php' page to PayPal by clicking the 'checkout' button, or do you have to go to the 'checkout.php' page and click the PayPal Express button?

I assume that this method then returns the user to the 'pp_confirm' page (like PP Pro), which only posts the order once they click 'confirm order'?

in the cehckout wizard, you would need to select PayPal Payments pro, then delete the checkout form on the cehckout page.



you _could_ delete the checkout button on the cart page, copy the checkout with payapl button from the checkout page to the cart page, and copy the code for the authenticate transaction with paypal express checkout server behvaor from the checkout page to the cart page as well to bypass the checkout page. I would not recommend doing this unless you are familiar with and comfortable with editing PHP code, though.

Thanks Jason - it was actually quite easy to do, so I'll explain it for others who might be interested.

First of all make sure the express checkout works properly with the original set up.

BACK UP the 'cart.php' and 'checkout.php' pages!!

Open the checkout.php page - copy the 'Authentication for PayPal Express Checkout' behaviour code and also the line:
<?php require_once("../WA_eCart/PP_ECO_Scripts/PP_ECO_PHP.php"); ?>

Copy the PayPal Express button from the checkout page, and paste it in place of your 'checkout' button in the cart form (I used a custom button).

In your Server Behaviours panel - double click the 'Authentication for PayPal Express' and change the trigger to: 'Button: PayPal_ExpressCheckout_button pressed'.

Then remove the 'ecart checkout button' behaviour as it is no longer needed.

Thats it - a far nicer solution I think.

I'll post the example page when its live!
