I plan to sell some software on-line and would like to dump my current payment gateway company due to their high charges.

Once a customer has successfully paid for the software, I want PayPal to notify me (via XML?) with the order details and an email will be sent to the customer automatically (with their unlock code).

Is this even possible with PayPal?
Which paypal version do I need (standard or pro)?

Search around here for posts on payPal IPN, and I think you only need a standard business account.
