I am trying to make a e-commerce site. I have the inventory stored in a MySql database. and I want to use paypal to process the payment. Once the payment clears I want to have the item number and the quantity sold sent back to me from paypal. that way I can use the MySql database and subtract the amount sold from the inventory. I would like to use paypal's cart if possible.
I use PHP to program in.
Thanks.

Hello

You need to implement Paypal IPN or Pro method to get instant payment notification.. Have you developed something which is not working or giving issue to look into ?

Hi cvw3,

thanks for posting at EE. You want to implement the payment gateway of Paypal. If you are not a beginner, you need 2 parts of development:


* Page processing to Paypal
* Page processing from Paypal

The best way is to create an order in your system generating an unique id, which will be transferred to Paypal.
All further information you need to implement the gateways, of course, thats both gateways, you'll find at:

Kind regards,
