I'm looking to setup Paypal Pro on a site and it seems that the paypal cart plugin is already setup to use the API from Paypal.
Is there any documentation on getting it going?

The PayPal integration is based on website payments standard, and uses Instant Payment Notification (IPN).

The only thing you need to do after installing the plugin is to enter your PayPal address in the Jojo options (under cart), and enable IPN from within your PayPal account.

The plugin doesn't support Website Payments Pro - the issue being that you need a US bank account, and have to go through a lot of extra paperwork to get a proper merchant account. I'll probably add the pro option at some point in the future, but not until Worldpay, "post a cheque" and other options have been implemented.

In the meantime, the IPN based plugin works great.

However, I did have an implementation of PayPal pro working in the early stages of development (then realised I needed a US bank account which I don't have). If you wanted to continue developing this, it's half done already.

sounds good. thanks for the info.
The paypalfunctions.php file has all the API credentials specified along with the Paypal sandbox address so I figured that was for Pro.

I can't seem to figure out the IPN url that paypal is asking for.

Is it possibly /cart/ipn/ or cart/process/paypal/ ?

You can put anything in the IPN box - I have just been putting www.domain.com/ipn/ which doesn't exist. When the payment request is made to PayPal, it overrides this setting anyway.

great.
I got confused because it seemed to work fine when I did a test run.
