    Hi Folks,

    How do I go about intergrating paypal with my open cart site? I have a paypal account set up but does it need to be a merchant account or a website standard account etc.

    I'm getting a bit confused by all of the options. I have decided to just stay with paypal for the time being just for ease before I decide I want to set up a proper business bank account etc.

    Thanks all
