You are using SSL all the way through, right?...

PayPal may not even allow you to do what you are trying to do, since
it would be WAY too easy for you to compromise the security of
people's credit cards, and PayPal doesn't really want to take on that
Responsibiilty of a Risk outside their control...

If they do accept a direct POST, there should be some kind of
documentation of what they want you to POST to make it work.

Can you describe what is going wrong?

What responses are you getting?

Some people have a "gift" link here.
Know what I want?
I want you to buy a CD from some indie artist.
Yeah, I get a buck. So?
