We do not currently use an automated Paypal checkout. In other words, upon completing your order, you will NOT be taken to Paypal.
This is for three reasons:
1) The shopping cart cannot adjust your total for out of stock items - and we never charge you for anything until it is ready to ship.
2) We only charge you actual postage which is usually less than what the shopping cart calculates.
3) If a customer does not hit the "Return to Merchant" button at the end of the Paypal process, the order is never submitted and just disappears into the Paypal aether.
We simply had too many orders where customers would ask for an update and we had never received the order due to this minor glitch!
At checkout, simply choose Paypal/Check as your payment method and put "Paypal" in the comments. Then, when your order is ready, and
exact postage has been calculated, we will send you a Paypal invoice. Simply click on the Pay Now button in the e-mail from paypal and you will be all set.
