For random.org, all you need to do is type in the total number of entries and it will randomly pick one. Like if 263 people enter, assign them each a number from 1-263. Then type "263" in the random number generator and it will pick a number between 1 and 263. That's your winner.

Can't help with the Paypal thing.. I think they're iffy about it because it can very easily fall into illegal gambling, so I've personally never accepted paid entries. There are a lot of rules defining sweepstakes vs. contests vs. anything else (and "anything else" tends to mean "illegal gambling").
