Passing Shopping Items to PayPal from a 3rd party shopping cart

P: n/a
Hi,

I have an ASP .Net e-business site that is built using DNN 2.0. I am
having troubles passing my shopping cart items to PayPal. I implemented
a total paynow button, but it was not good enough for my customer. I
found some PayPal ASP.Net controls to be used with .net studio.

Basically, I want the user to be able to shop on my website, add items
to my shopping cart and at the checkout to be taken to the PayPal
website. I would like the user to have all the checked out item listing
there on PayPal, so that when the payment confirmation e-mail is sent
from paypal, the full purchased Item list is included in the e-mail.

I looked through numerous posts as well as the paypal documentation.
Nowhere I was able to find any snippets of code or useful information
on passing shopping Items to PayPal from a 3rd party shopping cart.

Could anyone please help me with this ? Code snippets or any useful
information would be appreciated on this subject. VB.net would be
ideal...

Thank you in advance,

In which case, PayPal integration is the least of your worries - I'd
strongly advise you to ditch DotNetNuke immediately...

Dead easy. All you have to do is construct an HTML form and fill in some
hidden fields. Have you downloaded the PDF documentation from PayPal? They
have loads of examples too on their developer forums.

Then, you set up an IPN page and a PDT page to handle your fulfilment stuff,
including customer email notification, and you're done.

It's all in the PayPal documentation...
