NAME ^

Business::PayPal - Perl extension for automating PayPal transactions

ABSTRACT ^

Business::PayPal makes the automation of PayPal transactions as simple as doing credit card transactions through a regular processor. It includes methods for creating PayPal buttons and for validating the Instant Payment Notification that is sent when PayPal processes a payment.

SYNOPSIS ^

To generate a PayPal button for use on your site Include something like the following in your CGI

  use Business::PayPal;
  my $paypal = Business::PayPal->new;
  my $button = $paypal->button(
      business => 'dr@dursec.com',
      item_name => 'CanSecWest Registration Example',
      return => 'http://www.cansecwest.com/return.cgi',
      cancel_return => 'http://www.cansecwest.com/cancel.cgi',
      amount => '1600.00',
      quantity => 1,
      notify_url => http://www.cansecwest.com/ipn.cgi
  );
  my $id = $paypal->id;

Store $id somewhere so we can get it back again later

Store current context with $id.

Print button to the browser.

Note, button is an HTML form, already enclosed in <form></form> tags

To validate the Instant Payment Notification from PayPal for the button used above include something like the following in your 'notify_url' CGI.

  use CGI;
  my $query = CGI->new;
  my %query = $query->Vars;
  my $id = $query{custom};
  my $paypal = Business::PayPal->new(id => $id);
  my ($txnstatus, $reason) = $paypal->ipnvalidate(\%query);
  die "PayPal failed: $reason" unless $txnstatus;
  my $money = $query{payment_gross};
  my $paystatus = $query{payment_status};

Check if paystatus eq 'Completed'. Check if $money is the amount you expected. Save payment status information to store as $id.

To tell the user if their payment succeeded or not, use something like the following in the CGI pointed to by the 'return' parameter in your PayPal button.

  use CGI;
  my $query = CGI->new;
  my $id = $query{custom};

  #get payment status from store for $id
  #return payment status to customer

DESCRIPTION ^

new()

Creates a new Business::PayPal object, it can take the following parameters:

id

The Business::PayPal object id, if not specified a new id will be created using md5_hex(rand())

address

The address of PayPal's payment server, currently: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

cert

The x509 certificate for address, see source for default.

certcontent

The contents of the x509 certificate cert, see source for default.

addcert

The x509 certificate for address. This is added to the default values.

addcertcontent

The contents of the x509 certificate cert, This is added to the default values.

id()

Returns the id for the Business::PayPal object.

button()

Returns the HTML for a PayPal button. It takes a large number of parameters, which control the look and function of the button, some of which are required and some of which have defaults. They are as follows:

cmd

required, defaults to '_ext-enter'

This allows the user information to be pre-filled in. You should never need to specify this, as the default should work fine.

redirect_cmd

required, defaults to '_xclick'

This allows the user information to be pre-filled in. You should never need to specify this, as the default should work fine.

button_image

required, defaults to:

    CGI::image_button(-name => 'submit',
                      -src  => 'http://images.paypal.com/x-click-but01.gif'
                      -alt  => 'Make payments with PayPal',
                     )

You may wish to change this if the button is on an https page so as to avoid the browser warnings about insecure content on a secure page.

postpaypal()
