in reply to Paypal integration API call


I did this a couple of years ago. You want to apply for a sandbox account, which takes some time. I didn't find a Perl example at Paypal, but I did find an example ( I think at ebay ), which I modified and it worked great.

One thing I didn't find anywhere, but caused a lot of problems for me. I used an existing account which was being called by HTML generated by Paypal. Each time that code was called, PayPal disabled the API call since it didn't respond properly. It would have been easier to just get a new account and keep the calls separate.

Update:I just did a super search, and found references to CPAN modules Business::Paypal and Business::Paypal::API. From there dates on CPAN, they are newer than the code I used, and may be worth looking into.

Good Luck!
