After using SilverStripe for many many projects, I'm looking at a new one with eCommerce functionality. I would be grateful if someone could answer the following (hopefully simple) questions:

Is there a way for credit card transactions to be handled by PayPal without taking the customer to PayPal's website (ie customer enters their credit card details and checks out while staying on the SS site throughout)? Would I need a PayPal Express / PayPal Pro account to enable this?

Payment Gateways
I know that these can be written, but it there a single repository of gateway modules that I can choose from?

Many thanks in advance.

If PayPal allows such a thing, a new payment type would need to be written. And yes, you'd probably need some kind of paypal account.

Here's the list you're after:
...which is still being updated FYI.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, PayPal does allow credit card details to be entered on your website so that customers aren't taken directly to - I've used this on an OSCommerce website. You do need a PayPal Pro account though.
