    Can anyone point me in the right direction to get started with paypal Direct Payment adn Express Checkout.

    Ive searched about and found nothing so far, so maybe someone here can shed some light on my problem.

    Oh I forgot what other options do I have as a card proccessor or the UK and some integration guides would be handy.
    Regards Phil,

    Sign-up for this free service PayPal offers:

    https://developer.paypal.com/

    This allows you to create two fake accounts, a buyer and a seller.

    With that, you can use the examples they show to actually test out your
    scripts using the fake accounts. It is a really nice feature that PayPal offers.

    They have PHP script examples, documentation and other things to help you out.

    Once you get your checkout stuff working by using the "sandbox", you then
    switch your account info to the "real" PayPal account. The "sandbox" uses
    actual credit card transactions on fake credit cards ... so it tests out your whole
    Express Checkout system.

    Ive already got sandbox accounts, used it for IPN in the past.


    Ive downloaded the Paypal NVP samples from the paypal website and would like to use direct payment but noticed it says that DoDirectPayment is only supported in the US and I require it for the UK

    Phil ... I'll drop out of this thread as I have no experience with UK stuff like that.

    Someone else probably knows the answer you're looking for.

    Ok no problem ill keep searching, the problem Ive noticed is most of the large companies (Secpay,Nochex etc) that operate in the UK wont give me a test account until I start paying to use their service and I'm only looking it to it as a research project to extend my knowledge for when its needed.

    EDIT: Im going to take a look at google checkout see what it offers
    Regards Phil,
