to do this you need to register at http://developer.paypal.com/
which is a complete paypal mirror which isnt real and therefore allows you to go through the complete order process
now download the Paypal PHP Development Kit at http://paypal.sourceforge.net/
Config the kit to your webhost and add your paypal sandbox business account (one that can process creditcards)
now you can modfty orders_delivery.tpl
to "Post" the required variables to process.php in the paypal development kit //process.php takes the posted variables from orders_delivery.tpl and sends them to paypal(sandbox/developers version)
My version which is far from fully functional is avaliable here http://s105203764.websitehome.co.uk/paypal.tpl
Postage in the template is fixed at Ł12 simply for convience
Because the template "posts" to process.php and not to "quick carts" order facility, therefore any orders made dont show up in quick carts administration it may be possible to "post" the information to both quick carts admin section and to paypal using two "
post" forms i havent tried this as it would be possible that a person could finish the order process on your website is sent to paypal to make the payment but decides not to buy. This would mean that quick cart would have logged the order but no payment would
have been made leading to confusion.
a further problem i have had is that you can only have one item in the shopping cart this is beacuse of the way quick cart displays multiple items on the order page using the same product name variable ( $aBasket[sName] ) if i insert this variable into

PayPal has changed the way that customers check out with credit card details. Now the customer does not need to set up a PayPal account to pay!
Its now easier than ever to receive PayPal payments, so who wants to start the plugin !!!!!
As it stands right now, there is really no way to take care of the cart once it's completed. What is needed is a paypal plugin. Anybody have one that works properly?
The only thing that had stopped me from getting into Paypal is that the customer have to create an account first.. But is that not a requeirement these days, it's even better! Unfortunately I'm not that good on PHP that I can create e plugin.. But I'd love the one who did! :)
For those of you who want to include PayPal on the Cart do this:
In short, only windowPrintOrder must be ordersWindowPrint
To -Dj- You wrote: "PayPal has changed the way that customers check out with credit card details. Now the customer does not need to set up a PayPal account to pay!" But is that true? When I click my own 'Pay now with paypal' after I ordered my things, I get to a page that says I have to create an account.. Please explain that to me!
I think you need to have a Business Account to get the "No PayPal Required" be careful though, some fees are more with a Business Account too - I believe.
Whats the latest with the paypal integration? has anyone completed it yet and modified Quick.Cart for Multiple Items? "bob" post beofre worked well but has there been any further advances?
