Hi Geoffrey,

Thanks!  By "integration" I mean, a system that can send and receive paypal payments to others without human intervention.

What I have in mind is an auction site.  When someone wins an auction, I'd like to be able to accept a paypal payment
for the item, take my cut, and pay out the rest to the person selling the item.

Paypal has an API, which is described here:


I was hoping that someone had already created a scheme-powered website that integrated the Paypal API, and had written
about it, so that I could avoid gotchas, duplicating the wheel, etc.
