Is there a way to save customer’s full credit card number and CVV code in the database when using PayPal direct payment method to process the credit card?

Ok, here is what I found out so far. Technically, we can manipulate the code to save the credit card info in our database. However, this is not a safe and secure way to do business and it is too risky here in the US. So, we will not persue that. You can always use the Save Credit card module, but again not recommended.

Wasn’t the whole idea of PayPal that the merchant would not get access to the customer’s details?

If you want to store the number, it has to be PCI compliant and you need to audited. This includes storing it on an offline server. In short, it’s a really stupid and risky idea unless you have full-time security-aware sysadmins and tens of thousands to spend on security. Storing CVV is illegal in most countries.
