Yes sir! although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you contact the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...
Dont mean to crash your thread, but thought this can go here as well.....
Is there a way to prepopulate the paypal fields with my customer details to save them from entering it again ?
They are only available to your customers if you install them from the admin page. The list you see is what is available for you to install in the store section, think of them as a choice of what you are able to offer...
If you install the PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN contribution it should populate all the fields when the customer goes to the paypal site...
Ok, I think I understand now..
Thanks for your responses!.
@ozcsvs, when you say SHOULD, do you mean you done it before or know of someone that did or read that it did ? .
As far as I understood the ipn it just notifies you wether a transaction was succesful or not, so you or it can update your quantities and stuff like that(all important stuff) but then again I am so new I am probably wrong...
I have installed it and it does populate the fields for you..
The biggest advantage of the ipn install is that it records the purchase into your database before it sends the info to paypal so even if the customer does not click on the continue button you will have a record of the order. If you use the default paypal module and they do not click on the continue button you will have a payment and no idea what they ordered..

That sounds EXCELLENT, thanks for the info..
I am quite a newbie.
Is it hard to implement ? .
Is there any documantaion for it so I know how to work it ?
I am confused. Even if someone uses paypal without this ipn, don't you know about the payment anyway?.
I notice that besides PayPal there are other payment processors listed like 2Checkout (or something like that), etc..
If I have only signed up for PayPal should I delete these other companies' processors?.
Since all of these are available, does that mean a customer visiting my OSCommerce store can choose which one they want to use?.
Only if you establish merchant accounts which can use these methods and then turn them on...
