View Full Version : Simple e-commerce solution?

10-18-2008, 03:28 PM
I'm designing a new site for a consultant who mainly provides services, but has a couple of PDF versions of manuals/booklets for sale and wants to have the following happen automatically:

1. have a client pay by credit card online (using PayPal ? )
2. send an access password by email to the client
3. allow the client to download the file for a limited time period (1 month)

Volume would be low so just a simple solution is wanted. She does not yet have an account for accepting credit cards.

What is the best way to handle this?

See if one of the scripts listed here might work for you. http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/File_Manipulation/Download_Systems/index.html I looked at one of them on this list called php easy downloader http://www.ironclad.net/scripts/ and it has an addon for PayPal. It looks like it may be a good choice.

Both of these look as though they'll do what we want very nicely.
Thank you once again for your help.
