PayPal Buttons

We have a client that takes registration via a form for a 1st homeowners classes that she teaches. She now would like to take payment via her website for the classes but also have the form to submit with the registration information. How would I accomplish this? The form is already in place, it seems we would just need to have the "submit" button submit the form but then take the user to PayPal to make payment??? Here is a link the the already created form: Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The best option is probably to use Express Checkout. That way the information doesn't get inserted into the database until after the purchase is made.

Another option would be to set up an IPN page and have the inserted record marked as not paid and update the payment status on the IPN page.

I'd go with the first option. I can help with this in a premier support ticket if you feel like it is over your head.

You would:
Set up a shopping cart with an add to cart button for the registration to set the description and amount.

Then run the checkout wizard for Express Checkout.

Then add the few extra fields from your form to that form and update the insert orders to database to include the new fields as well.

That would do it.
