Hi

I’m a little confused as to how the PayPal Express checkout system works.

If you use paypal express checkout you simply enter your paypal username and password, but how does that work in regard to an actual customer account in the magento system.

Does magento \"create\" an account for that customer using their email address, and does it pull the address details over from PayPal.

I assume it does this otherwise how would Magento go about the customer order history, order despatch etc etc

I have been asked by clients about a \"guest\" account on an ecommerce system, whereby the customers details are not stored as an actual customer account, but the delivery address must be stored in the database surely??

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, James
