    I don't really understand what you're doing here. If you're taking payment by PayPal, then all you need is a PayPal button which will take the customer to the PayPal site to make the payment. One of the main benefits of using PayPal is that you don't take credit card details on your own site, with all the security issues that entails. The card details should only be entered on the PayPal site, and PayPal take care of the security.

    Well, I think the first thing to do would be to visit the PayPal site and find out how it works. As far as I know, you need to create a PayPal button for the subscription within your client's PayPal account and add that to your page. When somebody decides to sign up, the "Pay Now" button will take them to the PayPal site, where they can securely enter their details and PayPal will transfer the payment to your client's account.

    Yes - you can test locally and (provided you have an internet connection) the PayPal button will still take you to the PayPal site. It's basically just an external link with added information for PayPal to process.

    No need to give the details of credit card ,these all credential keep secure by Paypal,when you are creating Paypal panel..you just need to put that button in your website.

    jemz, you will need to sign up for a free developers account at paypal and use the SANDBOX service they provide. It behaves like the real Paypal systems but uses dummy/fake details so you dont end up spending your cash etc.

    Jemz:

    Note: you do not need to have a real PayPal Business account set up in order to set up a sandbox account. They’re totally separate.

    1. Go to developer.paypal.com.
    2. Click “Sign Up Now”, and fill in your information to register. This creates a developer account. You can use this to create multiple test accounts. For example, if you wanted to test a setup where you’re paid via bank account, and another setup where you’re paid via credit card, you could set up one test account for each. You sign into developer.paypal.com with your developer account, and you will sign into http://www.sandbox.paypal.com with your test accounts.
    3. Once you’re logged in to developer.paypal.com under your new developer account, click “Create a preconfigured account”.
    4. Choose the “Seller” account type, then enter any other information you’d like.
    5. Once that account is created, go to the Test Accounts tab. This will list your sandbox accounts, showing the e-mail address login for each.
    6. Click “Enter Sandbox Test Site” to be sent towww.sandbox.paypal.com (or you could just go there manually).
    7. Sign in using your test account.
    8. When you’re logged in here, a warning: make sure the address of the site always says http://www.sandbox.paypal.com. I clicked a certain link and was incorrectly sent to the production PayPal site, so that could have been unfortunate.
    9. On the top tab bar, click “Products & Services.”
    10. Then click “Get Paid” on the bar below that.
    11. Scroll down to find the “Add Payment Buttons” link and click it.
    12. Click the “Setting Up” tab in the middle of the page.
    13. Choose the style of button you want, and click it.
    14. Make sure you’re still on http://www.sandbox.paypal.com–if not, go there and start over.
    15. Follow the instructions on the screen to customize your button. In particular, under Step 3 you may want to enter a success and cancel URL to send users to, so they can get back to your app and so your app gets information about the purchase.
    16. Click “Create Button” and you’ll be given the code for your button. That’s it.
