What are the differences between paper trade and live trading?

What has been your experience between these steps towards creating a profitable algo?

Disclaimer: I’ve never traded live, but have multiple successful backtests and a paper trading algo (only over the past couple weeks).

Ive tried to keep the trading as realistic as possible, but im afraid some things cant be accounted for. Im making ~50 round trip trades a day and I’m worried that slippage will kill me live. How much does it eat into your trades? Im buying shares in bunches of 100-500 and only very liquid stocks.

What has been your experience transitioning to live?
