My internet developer tried to put paypal integration on my ecommerce site. I received his email below:

Please forward this message below to paypal as it's urgent we cant work without the following....

1. How do we carry the parameters required for our site through your site?
i.e Suppose we want you to process the payment of Amount say $100 for Username 'abc' against order no '10'.
We specify that
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="http://Successful
<input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="http://Cancel
as a.jsp and b.jsp respectively.
Now in a.jsp we need to have the values of Username, Amount and Order no for our internal processing.
Please let us know how this can be done.
How can we send the parameters from our calling page to paypal and then retrieve it back at our site.

2. We want the currency to be fixed to USD as our site the prices as displayed in that currency. How can you make payment processing for only site only in USD ?

3. Are all the hidden parameters you have specified mandatory for processing by paypal e.g.
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="TEST">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="123">
<input type="hidden" name="image_url" value="http://URL of your
GIF or
JPG Image">
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="1.00">
<input type="hidden" name="shipping2" value="1.00">
<input type="hidden" name="handling" value="1.00">

:Important :
4. Please explain the functionality of each hidden parameter parameter used in details so that we have a clear understanding of how to use it and where to accomodate it in our program.

5. Can you provide us with some testing mode credit card no so that we can check the functionality and integration of paypal with our site.

Please have a look at https://www.paypal.com/pdn where most of these questions are answered.

1. Use Instant Payment Notification
2. It's USD by default or you can specify with currency_code=USD
3/4. item_name, item_number, invoice (uniqueness enforced by PayPal), custom (not displayed to buyer), on0/os0/on1/os1.
5. Test on live with small txns ($0.01) and/or refunding (refunds all fees).
