eCart set up

Hello all and thank you in advance for any help given.

I have a simple registration form that I built on a .php page in Dreamweaver. New members enter all of the relevant information, simple stuff name, address phone number.

I want to put a paymnet button that will email the form information to me and the sales team and submit the payment information to my paypal merchant account at the same time.

How would I do that. I thought it would be easier than it is, but I am not finding a lot of documentation on eCart or the paypal module. I use DW5.5 and own a supscription to the full webassist supersuit.

normally there would be 2 types of users to the site:

1) Standard user
2) Premium user.

the registration would need to be accomplished to establish the user as a standard user level before they could purchase a premium account.

the user experience would be as follows:
- user would register for basic user account.
- once logged in, they could choose to purchase a premium account.
- on successful checkout the user level is changed from basic to premium.
- the premium user level would be allowed access to the premium content.

user login is done using Security Assist. in the archived documentation section of the security assist support page is a tutorial for user level authentication, it was written for SA1, but the same exact concepts apply in SA2.

on the eCart page, see the tutorial for adding login to the eCart checkout pages, it is important that the user be logged into the system in order to purchase the premium account.

what type of PayPal checkout system will you be using? PayPal Payments pro (recommended) or standard?
