Some examples on implimentation would be good. I'm relativly new to SS so am I guessing right that I create a PayPal.ss as well as place your code in the mysite/code/ then do a db/build?flush=1

Hi Jonathan

The Paypal comes as part of the e-commerce module and it is an extension of the payment class. Did you figure that out?

I'm slowly getting there; I'm new (4 weeks) to SS. I have recently installed the ecommerce module (latest daily build). That build already has a PayPalPayments.php file, but the contents are different from the file that you attached to your post. Which shall I use?

Am I right in thinking that the payments options are those that I need to set within the config file.
// Define which payment methods your site uses.
Payment::set_supported_methods(array(
   'DPSPayment' => 'Credit card (DPS)',
   'ChequePayment' => 'Cheque'
));

I should Add 'PayPalPayments' => 'Credit card (PP)';

In your file you mention setting paypal parameters within the config file. I take it that these details i.e. paypal account etc should be set up also to get the PayPal method to work?

Regards.

Jonathan.

P.S. I'm on freenode if you hav etime to chat about this for a min.

I have written you some comments on the IRC channel. Let me know if you got them - if you did not then I will email them to you.

Hi Nicolass, Sorry I closed down the chat chanel before I read this post. I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me some notes on implimentation. I may be new to SS but I'm fine with php etc.

Hi All

Attached is the paypal module developed by Nicolaas.

This version fixes the problem of the form submission not automatically redirecting to paypal.

Instructions (provided by Nicolaas) for implementing this module are included in the php file in the zip file located here. http://open.silverstripe.com/ticket/1760

We have done some testing and so far it works well.

This method is an external payment method where you are actually redirected to the paypal site and once payment has been processed you are linked back to your SS cart where SS updates the transaction as successful or unsuccessful.

Paypal charges for the onsite method of processing so this is why Nicolaas opted for the off-site payment method.

You can view paypal ticket here http://open.silverstripe.com/ticket/1760
