Paypal Express Checkout

PayPal has quickly become a global leader in online payment solutions. The PayPal Express Checkout button gives wine buyers another way to pay, and it complements the new checkout tools. Online shoppers appreciate the convenience and security of PayPal, where they can pay with their PayPal balance, bank account or credit card without sharing or entering any information on the merchant’s site.

Enabling PayPal Express Checkout will provide your customers with an addtional payment method (PayPal) during their checkout experience on your website.

Does Paypal collect the entire order amount and then send the balance after subtracting their fee OR do we receive an invoice for sales fees periodically?

PayPal will take the fee out of the transaction. So there is no invoice or bill that you need to deal with.
