Thanks Lyn.  I also downloaded the Paypal Express API document and it
indicates that it passes back the address information after the
transaction.  So if this is the case, do I need to be asking for this
information before I send them down the road of Paypal Express?  

The way I have it right now is in the finalize.html and
new_browser_payment stage, I have created a drop box option for Paypal
and when selected a new button comes up saying Pay with Paypal.  That
button is linked to paypalsetrequest.html.  Unfortunately I'm not
getting directed to Paypal from this click.  

My route settings are:
Route paypalexpress returnurl
Route paypalexpress cancelurl http://www.dressler.ca/
Route paypalexpress host api-3t.paypal.com 
Route paypalexpress currency USD|CAD  
Route paypalexpress headerimg

I'm getting a routing log error in the error.log file.  

My returnning url:
cat paypalgetrequest.html 
[charge route="paypalexpress" pprequest="getrequest"]
[bounce ord/finalize]

Should this be returning to the finalize page?  

I'm continuing to look at it to see if I can find the problem.
