i am developing a C# asp.net website which accepts payments from users through paypal.
In return, the users are assigned points which can be redeemed later.
What i don't know is, if a user decides to redeem his points for cash, how to transfer funds from the company's paypal account to the users paypal account automatically?
i know that it can be done by manually logging in and sending money, but i want to automate the process.
Is it possible?

Have you contacted PayPal to get a developer account and gain access to their API?  If you sign up with a business account you can get automated access to their API.

mattaob: It's actually mentioned in the EE FAQ's that it is proper etiquette to mention a previous experts comment if you are expanding on it.  I had already mentioned the API and you should have acknowledged it.
