We want to provide to hotel guests in a number of hotels ISP services.

The guest wants to go onto the Internet NOW.

Which Paypal suites this type of transaction -- giving us irrevocable
confirmation of payment.

We can't afford to provide the service and then find out days later
that the authorization was revoked.

Paypal offers these eight services according to
https://www.paypal.com/IntegrationCenter/ic_home.html

Express Checkout
Website Payments Standard
Website Payments Pro (US)
Website Payments Pro (UK)
PayPal Mobile Checkout
Payflow Link
Payflow Pro
Website Payments Pro Payflow Edition

Thank you.

I'll be surprised if anyone here really knows that much about paypal.

Perhaps try Paypal sales/support ? Ebay forums?

Two options...

You can link from your splash page to PayPal and get they will be
presented with a PayPal web page. Easy to implement.

You can write your own interface that points to PayPal behind the
scene and the customer won't see it. Hard to implement if your not
up to speed on programming.

Its all in the PayPal documentation.

Too easy. No fun.

Paypal has a free API for developing applications and web front ends
that use Paypal. Join the developers network, RTFB (read the friendly
blog) for examples to plagerize, and dive in.

Nobody actually reads the documentation until desperate.
