Multiple Paypals in Flash

I have a customer who produces 30 second advertisements for his customers, they are written in flash (using swishmax 2006) and hosted on his website.  The link to the advert is emailed to his clents potential customers.

Question: How, if possible, do I setup the following (for multiple customers);
After the Flash presentation plays the customer will have the option to make a purchase online.  A Form will be on the left of the presentation asking for details like Name and address etc (I'll create the form)  Once the continue button is pressed he can select the product....make a booking....select qty etc.  Continue to the next page....a secure page with padlock....credit card details are entered or PayPal.....

I am not from a programming background (Desktop and server support) so be specific please.

Hey EDPC001,

I think you aren't getting many replies because it would take a lot of programming effort to set something like this up in Flash.  A better bet is to have the presentation link to a traditional payment processing / shopping cart mechanism.  I haven't seen any shopping carts made in Flash, probably because Flash doesn't directly connect to databases without the help of server-side programming like ColdFusion or ASP.NET, so you would need to program in those pages anyway.  

In other words, it's better to save yourself some effort and program or purchase (or use open source) a separate web shopping cart system.

Thanks Graphixer

That's all I really needed ... I'll go and adivse the customer.

I'll make my next question a little less ambitious :)
