paypal api question on ppv plugin

Hi Guys,
Thanks again for the quick response to our last support query. We are stuck on the main part of this site. This needs a paypal api created for to run the pay per view thing. As a non-us paypal developer user we can't enable the payment at paypal and create the API needed for this site. As a result the main pay per view functionality is not working yet. Can PPV support suggest any alternative way or do we have to have a U.S. paypal user account with which I can make the ppv functional? I can't move forward to the next stage at the moment - all help would really be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

David.
