API Account Username for PayPal checkout

I've already got my own website but seriously thinking of changing to Yola. Before I proceed further with this, I need confirmation as to how the PayPal checkout works. PayPal require me to add an API account username from the web host in order for the 'secure express checkout' to work effectively. If I sign up for a Yola website, will I be provided with an API account username for PayPal? For example, the one I use right now is paypal_api1.name of webhost.

Look forward to hearing from you and thanks.

I use PayPal Standard now and it is fine here....all you need is your e mail address that the account is assigned to for the buy now widget on Yola.com...You can also go to PayPal's site, sign on to your account then create your own buttons for add to cart and view cart....They will create the html code for you (from info you enter)then you use the html widget on Yola and paste your PayPal code in that.
