Can you guide me step by step to integrate paypal in Magento.
I want to use the standard pay pal option with cheapest rate(no monthly fees)
Once my site starts working then I would add paypal merchant.

Can you guide me step by step to add paypal . I had sandbox account and tried to give in configuration but it did not work? Do I need to change some code too?

Hello: The following link should get you set up. When testing paypal using a test account you must log into paypal's sandbox otherwise it will not work. http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/how_to/paypal_standard_payments_setup_with_ipn

I had test account and has credit card and fake money too in sand box. I am also login in sand box account. Also I had set paypal as in document. It is a lit bit different as here no extra text box for email. I had put the paypal email in business name/account in Magento setting.
But the problem is that when I go to check out page there is no paypal button or some thing.? Shoudl I not see paypal button or check out button on checkout page? Do I need some thing do on check out page to display the button?
Please see the attached files: one is magento configuration page and other is check out. That check out seems indepenent of paypal. Please guide.

You also need to enable pay pal under payment methods. Go to System->Configuration->Payment Methods. Then go to the paypal standard field set and enable it.This should make Magento provide pay pal as a payment option.
