it would be helpful to know what software you're using to create your site.

You'll need to register with PayPal before they can accept payments on your behalf, and then their site will generate html code which will create 'Pay now' buttons for you. These will contain links direct to Paypal's site, and the code will tell their server which products and prices are involved. All you have to do is create a product catalogue with a PayPal button for each product or service.

If you don't have many separate items you can create the catalogue in a simle table - the PayPal site (to which your customers will be taken) has all the necesary forms already set up.

If you tell us who your web host is one of us may be able to help you very quickly.

Most web hosts have preconfigured CGI scripts for feedback forms, so if you ask your host or check up your account properties with them they could get a form on your site in moments. It will normally be a bit limited (name, email address and comments) so if you need more than this you may have to run an outsourced CGI or PHP script, but we can advise on that if it is required and supply links to usable scripts for you.

Either get back with your web host details of contact them yourself and ask about form CGI scripts.

Sorry, I completely overlooked the payment requirements of your question (always read the question !)

That's a different kettle of fish entirely.

PayPal have links on their site click here for Merchant Tools which explains a bit about how to go about registering with and using their payment system. PayPal, like all the other major players, have preconfigured shopping carts, product catalogues, form order processing and all kinds of other widgets that you can use for a price.

How much to you need the system to do ?

How big a product range or service range do you have ?

Will people be choosing from 1 or 10,000 options ?

There are lots of considerations to be made and possible outcomes, but it's difficult to advise based on the little information you've supplied.
