i am looking for shopping carts that accept paypal for payment transparently ... that is they will accept credit card payments via paypal without the user being taken to the paypal website or even knowing that they are using it.
or, lacking that, they accept paypal as an option but collect the credit card information within the cart rather than switching off to paypal.
The service is called Website Payment Pro. The service requires two parts to be present. One is the "Express Checkout" service which allows a buyer to pay via Paypal. This goes to the Paypal site for buyer to login. The other service uses an API called "Direct Payment" which allows the buyer to stay at your web store while the charge is authorized. Both service options need to be present per the terms of service.
You can do a search for "website payment pro" and "direct payment api" with shopping cart.
Here a link to the Paypal Website Payment Pro Overview [paypal.com] . When researching shopping carts I highly recommend reviewing demos. Some shopping cart companies advertise working with the new API, but they lie.
