Typical "How to" questions

Example: How to set up PayPal Express Checkout? How to create virtual products? How to change logo? Thanks for your help, it will help make osCommerce v4 a better platform.
Moving from Paypal standard to login with paypalI have paypal standard working. I want to use the 'log-in with paypal', but the documentation seems to diverge from clarity. There will be others wanting to do the same thing - so lets leave them some breadcrumbs in this thread. (Those updating to Oscommerse 2.3.4 will want to get their content module working first). First - under content we have a module - 'log in with paypal'. It has a link to a 'support web site' and lists requirements - that we need to create a Paypal Application at the paypal developer site. That page says nothing about OsCommerse and has all sorts of things apparently unrelated to what I'm doing. (Looks like they want to sell a deal to have Paypal provide a shopping cart). It looks like paypal is calling all sorts of things "apps" - which to me and many others first means a cell phone 'app' (a downloadable program - an applet - a small application). (I think they are using the term to mean 'application' and trying to sound like a cool cellphone user?) There are two kinds of 'apps'[sic] listed on their site - "REST API apps" and "Classic API apps" (classic API apps used to be called "Adaptive API apps" (someone likes to make the simple complicated) (which means they are really talking about an api? - calling it an app?) Anyway - what in the world is the precise name of the paypal 'application' that am I looking for here: https://developer.paypal.com/
