Forum OpenACS Q&A: 3.2 paypal gateway
but I needed one for 3.x (and I didn't see R's code in cvs to steal
and maybe backport :) so I wrote a quick and dirty one. If this
would make your life easier, feel free to mail me and I'll send it
Yes, I'm working on a PayPal module, but I am only now going back to work on it after over a month without doing anything (baby, tests).
It's been taking me a while because I have limited time and I had to refactor the e-commerce package and a couple other payment service contract packages to adapt to what I wanted to do with the PayPal package.
For clarification, the e-commerce package as is right now is hard-coded for credit card payment. Anything else won't work without a mess. So I modified it to take several different payment contracts, credit card or not, and that took some walking through some pretty ugly e-commerce code.
On the way I fixed some pages that followed the BHOH design pattern (Big Hunk of HTML), but there are many many more left in that package (something I plan to change).
So if nothing else, I'd like to take a look at _your_ package to see what I can lift from it, please
I have implemented a dummy interfase to Paypal.
It doesn't use ecommerce module cuz is just one product.
Paypal interface AFAIK when I did it 4-5 months ago, should be easy to implement to you, Paypal has some examples to how to do it with shopping baskets systems.
