E-book delivery after payment confirmed

7 replies
Can anybody tell me how to send an ebook that has been purchased from my website? I have a pay pal button on my website. I want the customer that buys the the e book to receive it after payment has been confirmed. How do I do this automatically?
Any Advise ???
Thanks,

    You do this by including the URL of your success page (i.e. the page to send the purchaser to after the payment is completed) in your Paypal configuration and there are two ways that you can do this:-

    1) Login to your Paypal account and access your profile and go to the Website Payment Preferences section.
    2) Add a line to the Paypal form code (sorry the forum won't let me include an example).

    You'll find all of this covered in Paypal's Website Payments
    Standard Integration Guide

    Hope this helps,

    I don't think that's quite right, it won't forward to the success page if the payment does not go through.

    However, people can obviously share the URL of that page with their friends etc. so it's not secure in any way.

    You can also include a fail page, which they are directed to if their payment fails or they do not complete the transaction.

    Good point - you can configure the Paypal settings also to block echecks which I have always done.

    You're right IPN is safer because it has a backend component to it but it might be more advanced than was being asked.
