Doug's Choices
After reviewing the options available to him, Doug has decided to go with PayPal as
his preferred payment gateway because of its low setup costs. It may be appropriate
to choose another gateway later on (and possibly write a module for it) depending
on the monthly volume of transactions as that may prove to be more cost effective,
although from the gateways supported by default, PayPal also seems to be the most
cost effective in the long term.
Configuring the Payment Gateway
Now let's set up and configure our store for the PayPal payment gateway, then let's
have a brief look at the configuration involved in the other gateways.
This assumes we have already set up an account with our payment
gateway and set up the account so that we can receive money.
To configure our store to use PayPal we need to go into the PayPal section within the
E-Commerce configuration section in the Administer menu.
