PhP and Paypal

Postby Natlofthouse » Wed Jul 02, 2003 10:36 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good php tutorial
that teaches how to use paypal.
You know:
1)The user enters data
2)This imformation is sent to paypal
3)Paypal sends back a message accepting
or denying the validity of the user input.
4)All this info is placed in a relevant database.
Thanks!

Thanks.

Created by Russians?I've read several of
Aleksandre Solzhenitsyn's books.
My favourites are the "Inner circle" and "a day in the
life of Ivan desonovitch".Good reading.
Also Wizard I was wondering,I don't have a credit card,
Is it really difficult to use two separate bank accounts,one
as a buyer,one as a seller to test a PhP/paypal script?
Would you know the answer?
Thanks.

If you dont have credit card, then you might as well forget paypal. Well when I signed up I needed one anyways, which was about 18 months ago. Anyways, I think paypal also has a shopping cart of their own which you can use, if that at all relates to your question/search. :wink:

If I have to get another creditcard ,I don't think I'd
bother with paypal.
I guess they're just another shyster company anyway.
I haven't had a creditcard in years.

You don't need a credit card to use paypal. All you need is a savings account. You can transfer funds back and forth.

The only time you would need a credit card is when you want to pay with paypal on a non-paypal site.

You know Redcircle,it appears as liquedus said. If you're not in the U.S.A (I'm in Canada) then it does appear that you need a creditcard to use paypal.
I'll check out that Paysystems place.Thanks a lot.
Also,I was looking at both your guys websites.Very impressive.
I'd be interested in knowing what graphical tools you used.
Thanks.
