there is this module: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5687

 

It seems to work fine if the person doesn't already have an account and uses the Express Checkout for the first time. If they ever come back, they have to request their account password since the original was setup by paypal - and that kind-of lame....

 

However, if the customer already has an account before you use the module, it doesn't seem to work (at least for me).

 

I think it has something to do with how the address is being handled since we use States and the State sent is the full state name instead of the abbreviation - but I don't know.

I recommend using the one by dynamo effect and disable the dp.

but with that contribute it says "Since it over-writes several checkout files, it is likely to be incompatible with any modifications you have made to your checkout process or any other contributions that modify the checkout process". i have another credit card contribute already installed and i want to use both.

i downloaded that contribute and for me it works, it takes me to paypal and back and the transaction gos through. But what you decribed sounds like what i am going through. Same thing, i login and use paypal express and it creates another account with the same name. Also does oscommerice register the order within the admin, because i am getting nothing, when some one uses the paypal express, just a invoice from paypal, and i have no idea what they bought.

The order showed up, but was one of the 10 or so status that were created by the mod. It was visible via a different view than going to the normal orders.php in admin, and was not visibile in some of my custom reports.

 

I disabled and completely removed the contribution, trying to find an alternative - which is likely going to be Magento or VirtueMart... lol
