Many thanks Andrew.
How to integrate the business Paypal account, with one account, for the case that the account is to receive money, as it means the account is for selling services?

Lots of different ways to integrate PayPal depending on what you're after.  You just need basic payment for services you provide..??  Subscription?  Do you want users to be able to enter CC's directly or do you care of they redirect through PayPal's site?

what is the difference between those? I expect to give the way for the registered user to pay for subscriptrion through their credit card. Thanks

With "PayPal wallet" transactions people have to have a PayPal account in order to pay you.  then there's guest checkout, which still happens on the PayPal pages, but people don't have to login...they can just enter a credit card and process that way.

Unfortunately, when you want to deal with subscriptions guest checkout is not available.  The user would have to have a PayPal account with the general PayPal products.

If you do want to give your users the ability to process cards directly on your site without any redirection at all, and you're going to be working with subscriptions, then you'll need to sign up with Payments Pro + Recurring Billing.  This is going to cost you about $50/mo I think it is ($30 for Pro and another $20 for the recurring add-on).  

Once you get that figured out it's just a matter of calling the necessary API's to process things from your website or application.  I can tell you what API's you'll be working with if you can let me know which route you'll be taking.

Many thanks Andrew.
Usually on the web, we used to use credit card to pay for the products or services. Using that, I never login any PayPal account. How to integrate "that way" into .Net projects?

Sign up for Payments Pro.  After that (or maybe during the application process) you can add on the Recurring Billing feature.  

Once you have those enabled on your account you'll be ready to go live, but of course you can test all of this in the sandbox prior to even signing up if you want to.  I like to get signed up first just in case you get denied for any reason at all.  Then you won't waste development time.  

The development will be on the PayFlow Gateway.  Get familiar with that, and then there's also a separate piece of documentation specific to the Recurring Billing part.

I'm not a .NET developer, but I would imagine the PayFlow .NET SDK would come in handy.
