PayPal has an IPN - Instant Payment Notification - system. you must set it up and incorporate it into your website if you want to modify your user's account data after a donation transaction.

download the Order Management Integration Guide from here:
https://cms.paypal.com/cms_content/en_US/files/developer/PP_OrderMgmt_IntegrationGuide.pdf
and read Chapter 3 for instructions.

also check the last section on this page for a quick intro to IPN and specific form variable you can add to your form to specify the return url:

Thanks for this:

have two issues.
  • Will the clicking on donation button will trigger IPN and the money can be transferred to specific email address registered with paypal. i know ipn send the finalize or cancel url to website back once payment is processed. Do you think IPN will be best suited for this stuff i am trying to do.

i do not know - only you know that... but it looks like IPN is what you need if you want to make changes to your database based on values returned by PP...

Well Here is my Complete situation. Sorry for late reply.

  • I have money in my account say 10$.
  • if i click donate button . that will take me to paypal and send the money over there.
  • one i send the money, i want that user should be diverted back to my website with success/failure status.
  • if yes, the amount should be immediately deducted from my account i mean the table where i have the entry.
  • if cancel, the amount should be as it is and i should get a message that donation cancelled.
    • Two issues.
    • If user has donated $5 instead of 10, then how will effect the database amount.
I am asking these questions because i never played with this Paypal stuff and i am bit afraid going this far without experts help.

Please Guide Regards
