It’s awesome to be able to sell your products online, through your shopping cart, or through your order forms, but the money needs to get to your bank. That’s where your Infusionsoft merchant account comes into play. You can use PayPal and/or a merchant account to process payments. When an order is placed through the shopping cart, an order form, or via a manually created order, Infusionsoft collects the information (e.g., customer, product(s) fees, sales tax, and shipping fees).
It then calculates an order total and passes that number and the billing information (name, address, and encrypted credit card number) securely to a payment processor.

The payment processor takes that information and completes the actual financial transaction, charging the customer's credit card. It also handles the currency part of the transaction. Infusionsoft passes a number to the processor, and the charge is processed based on the currency you have set up in their system.

Note: Paypal Payflow Pro is a gateway. It is different from a standard business PayPal account.
