I am designing a subscription-based website and am using the PayflowNETAPI API for PayPal, c#(dot.net). Here is my issue, there are several times when I have to perform database inserts and updates after I create or update a recurring billing profile. I know that I can run database inserts and updates within a transaction scope and rollbacks will be performed provided TransactionScope.Complete is never reached. The problem is how do I rollback the PayPal transaction so everything either completes or fails including the PayPal transaction?  I am using the service layer and repository patterns.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The PayPal transaction is not part of your database transaction so will not be automatically rolled back. If a rollback occurs, you will have to do a reverse transaction to PayPal like voiding an auth, refunding a capture, etc.
