Click the "my account" tab in the members area, then click the "manage account" sub-tab. Scroll down to the direct payment settings, then enter your paypal email address, then click the update button at the bottom of the page. Now when you list auctions, select the "paypal" option for direct payment settings.
You need to be sure to set up the callback URL in Paypal, so Paypal automatically updates the payment status for auctions paid with direct pay. To do this you will need to log in to your Paypal account, click the "profile" link, then click the "instant payment notification" link. On this page you will need to turn this preference on, and include the below URL as the IPN URL.
Your buyers will now be able to pay you directly through a paypal pay now button on the Icybid site. This must be completed before listing items, and you must select paypal direct pay for each auction for this to work.
