UK PayPal Questions

As a UK merchant, which PayPal service would I use if I want to authorize orders upon the order being placed and then grab the money only when I process the order in the back-end of Magento?

i don’t want to have to log in to PayPal as the merchant.

If the punter stays on the shop, great, if not, no biggy.

For this, do I use Pro, Express or standard?

I would also appreciate some insight into PayPal conversions on shops where a full merchant account via WorldPay/Protx etc. is available too. Out of 100 orders from UK customers, how many would use PayPal? How many Google Checkout and how many pay by card on the merchant account?
