I believe the API for paying without going to their site is called PayPal Payments Pro.

They've also just released a lower cost offering called Advance or Advantage or something - basically allows checkout to take place within an iframe on your site, think of that what you will 8O

What's wrong with processing payments in an iframe? As long as it's SSL encrypted, of course, that's fine.

In fact, that is much more secure than having to collect that information and processing it on your server through paypal API.
Code: Select all
if ($toBe || $notToBe) echo 'That is the question';

Fine from a security perspective.

From an accessibility perspective I don't feel iframes are a great choice though and, from a merchant's perspective, since they obviously would choose this approach to provide a more "professional" checkout experience where the user doesn't seem to leave their own website, they would very likely also have to spend more time/money/effort customizing the embedded checkout page to whatever degree is facilitated by the service provider.

I didn't say that is bad or wrong, I just said make of it what you will.
