Perhaps someone can help me...and perhaps this belongs in another forum.

For users who wish to pay to gain member access, I'd like to embed PayPal (my current e-payment processor) into the signup page somehow and allow these users, once they completed payment, to create their own unique ID and password, then instantly access the secured directory without intervention on our end.
