My point is that not all clients are going to be thrilled to be paying you with PayPal. Some still associate it as that 'eBay payment service' while others may think that they still have to sign up for a PayPal account to pay you.
A true payment gateway allows you to accept payments almost seamlessly and in seconds. Sending your customers to PayPal just adds yet another step where a sale could be abandoned.
Why take that chance and continue to deal with PayPal's higher fees, lack of customer service, and slow payment process? Why should you have to wait 3-4 business days to get paid? And even then, you still always need to request that your money be transferred to you? That doesn't happen with a payment gateway.
