You need to tell PayPal about the discount order total. You can do this by modifying the PayPal cart object that is passed.

Observe the event paypal_prepare_line_items (Mage_Paypal_Model_Cart line 318)

In your observer, you load the paypal cart as such:

$payPalCart = $observer->getPaypalCart();

Get your discount amount from the order

$order = $payPalCart->getSalesEntity();
$discountAmount = $order->getDiscountAmount();

You can then set the discount amount by calling updateTotal()

$payPalCart->updateTotal(Mage_Paypal_Model_Cart::TOTAL_DISCOUNT, $discountAmount);

And that is it, PayPal will now know about your discount. This should work for standard, advanced, and pro I believe - both express checkout and direct payments.

For me, the following function in my custom module's observer worked:

class YourNamespace_YourModule_Model_Observer
    public function updatePaypalTotal(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
        $label = SOME_LABEL;
        $qty = SOME_QTY;
        $feeAmount = SOME_FEE_AMOUNT;
        $itemNumber = SOME_IDENTIFIER_OR_SKU;

        /* @var $cart Mage_Paypal_Model_Cart */
        $cart = $observer->getEvent()->getPaypalCart();

        $cart->addItem($label, $qty, $feeAmount, $itemNumber);

        return $this;
