Receiving Payments Using PayPal


In this chapter, you saw how to integrate PayPal into an e-commerce site—a simple payment solution that many small businesses choose so they don’t have to process credit card or payment information themselves.

First we listed some of the alternatives to PayPal, before guiding you through the creation of a new PayPal account. We then covered how to integrate PayPal in stages 1 and 2 of development, first discussing a shopping cart, a custom checkout mechanism, and then how to direct the visitor straight to the payment page.

In the next chapter, we’ll move on to look at a catalog administration page for BalloonShop.
