I've evidently done a bad job of explaining what I mean!
PayPal provide a pay service, where, after signing up for it, you speak
HTTPs to them on a special URL to do background credit/debit card
authorisation -- I'm not doing anything remotely against the Terms and
Conditions of PayPal!
This service is called Website Payments Pro UK -- They provide an API but I
just don't understand it.
The link that Josh sent earlier is to implement Website Payments Standard,
which basically makes a form which posts to PayPal and then takes you back
to your thanks/success/error page after the transaction. That's easy and,
according to her, people don't like it.
So it brings me back to WPP UK...
