paypal as an OPTION?

paypal as an OPTION?

is paypal a possible OPTION for payment?
what i mean by that is i want to set the cart up for local checkout and the payment gateway is

however the client wants users to have the option to pay at paypal as well.

i think the answer is no - as paypal would have to somehow loop back to us with a confrimation or success response to have the order complete and save on our end.

You could always create two sets of checkout pages, one for the other for paypal. then on the cart page, and a Checkout With button and a checkout with papal button.

but will that save on our end?

but paypal doesnt loop back so that the data gets saved on my end correct? so we would have to rely on paypal reporting all the order info to us.

PayPal IPN

PayPal IPN (Instant Payment Notification) System for loop-back to your website's Back-Office:

"Instant Payment Notification (IPN) is PayPal's message service that sends a notification when a transaction is affected. Once IPN is integrated, sellers can automate their back office so they don’t have to wait for payments to come in to trigger order fulfilment."


There are also pre-built scripts once you're set up if you google for them.
