I built a shopping cart. Now I'm just wondering is there a way to use paypal without ever leaving my website?

Like can I just use it with cfhttp to validate the cart or does the client have to create an account on paypal and fill in his info there as well.

If I can can someone point me in the right direction

Thanks

1. so what is this all about? http://www.paypaldev...sp?TOPIC_ID=277 Is that when the transaction is returned from Paypal Site?

2. So if my cart gathers all the info Like Billing and shipping info, by going to paypal the user has to retype it all?

3. Do you need a Paypal account to BUY from paypal? I know to sell yes obviously, but to buy, do you need to become a member of paypal. If so what is the cost.

4. Do I need to send every individual Item to paypal or can I just send the total and an invoice number?

Thanks a lot

1. The PayPal system transmits payment details upon completion of a payment. This is "Instant Payment Notification". See http://www.paypal.com/ipn

2. You can pass it in for pre-filling or the 30+ million existing users need not re-type it. Info about pre-fill: https://www.paypal.c...-signup-outside

3. PayPal issues a password during the payment process. There's never a fee to buyers.

4. You can send each item one-by-one, a final total alone or a final total with cart details.
