Register account - Take payment using Paypal - Then Create account if payment successful

Hi,
I need some advice in creating in creating payment based account registration in drupal 7.

I have thought about using Drupal Commerce to achieve this feature, however its a massive overkill to use it just for a registration page which goes to a payment gateway(paypal), then create an user account upon successful payment.
If Drupal commerce is the way to do this, what is best practise to create a registration system like this?

I have tried to do this with Form API, but became stuck when dealing with payment gateways.

I wouldn't say it's overkill... Drupal Commerce is the way to go for accepting payments on your Drupal site. It's a very simple module on its own. You can plug in additional modules to add the functionality you need such as the Commerce Paypal module to accept paypal payments. Paired with the Rules module, you should be able to accomplish your goal. Rules allows you to trigger actions based on events.

Your situation could be set up something like this:
Create a Role for your users. Something like "Paid User".
With Commerce, create a product for a paid registration.
With Rules, create a rule that is triggered on account registration that adds the paid registration product to their cart, the redirects the user to the checkout screen.
Create another rule that is triggered on a successful payment that adds the "Paid User" role to that user account.

Now you can define whatever permissions for that paid user role to give them access to the paid areas of your site.
