When doing online payments we recommend a client-to-client integration with an eCommerce payments provider using our Integration Theme.
This method is more secure and will require less future maintenance.
The last available build for the eCommerce PowerPack is v17.
The eCommerce PowerPack allows you to implement PayPal into your DriveWorks Project. See eCommerce PowerPack Deployment Guide for more information on how to implement the eCommerce PowerPack into your DriveWorks Projects.
