Paypal and product download

Recommended Posts

I am trying to set up a couple of products on my site. I have set up Paypal "Buy Now" buttons which work fine.

Does anyone know where I might find some code that will only allow the product to be downloaded after confirmation from Paypal that the payment has been made?

I'll appreciate any help provide.

You'll find everything you need - and up-to-date as well - right on PayPal's site. Check the Merchant account area and find out/download what you need to use IPN.

Or, use something like a free account at Payloadz - [a href=\"http://www.payloadz.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.payloadz.com[/a] - and avoid all the hassle.

I have a paypal account and I have the Paypal buttons on my site. They work fine! If you click on the "Buy Now" button it goes to my account at Paypal. Once you are there you can make the payment but what I need is some code on my site that will email a link to the product download area to the customer, but [b]ONLY[/b] if the payment has been confirmed.

Some people use "echecks" and that takes a few days to clear so they should not get the download link emailed until confirmation is received from Paypal that the echeck has cleared.

The code I am looking for would wait for confirmation from Paypal and if it is received, a link to the product download is emailed to the customer. If they pay by "echeck" then the link is not emailed until confirmation that the echeck cleared has been received.
