You must have one of these modules installed to use SSL connections and do real time credit card transactions.

The user from choose to pay by Paypal from the account manager, the program will send all the necessary information to Paypal site, after the user do the payment will be returned to his account manager and will see his payment has been recorded under his deposit activity.

Users also can send payments directly from their Paypal account without being logged in the account manager, all they need is to send to the specified Paypal email. Later the user can login to his account manager and grab his payment by Paypal using the email address he sent the payment from and the system will record the payment in his deposit history.

 

Steps to setup Paypal payment method

  1. Make sure the Perl module Mail::POP3Client is installed on your server, if not you must install it. Click the link Test Module to test if this module is installed or not.

  2. Create an email account at your domain for example paypal@yourdomain.com. This email account should be dedicated only for use by the system only, no other email client should check email on this account.

  3. Please go to http://www.paypal.com and sign up for a free account if you do not have already account with Paypal using the email account that you have created in the previous step.

  4. Enter your Paypal account information as follows:

    • Paypal email account is under:
       The email account you have created in step one above which is dedicated for Paypal system.

    • Email account username:
      This is your email account user name which will be used by the system to check any emails from Paypal regarding payments.

    • Email account password:
      This is your email account password which will be used by the system to check any emails from Paypal regarding payments.

    • Email account hostname:

    • This is the domain name of at which you created your Paypal account, for example mail.yourdomain.com.

    • Email account AUTH_MODE:
      This option is used for POP3 email check, depending on your mail server settings, choose the method. The default method which should work normal is "BEST", if your server require authentication then choose "PASS". If you do not know exactly just try all of them but sure one should be correct.

Please note it is very important not to check this email account by any email client like "Outlook Express" or else since this will delete the emails sent by Paypal regarding users transactions an the system will not be able to automatically to record these transactions, in this case you will have to deposit the payment manually from the admin center.

Please after completing all the above steps do test payment and check the system is setup correctly with Paypal to avoid any problems or manually doing deposits.

Under all circumstances all the payments set to your account at Paypal will be available for review in your Paypal account.

Important note, according to Paypal system, if a new Paypal user with unverified address sent a payment to you, the payment will be held in your Paypal account until you accept it manually or deny it, once you accept it you either login to the user account and grab the payment using the user email address used to send the payment or email the user these steps and let him grab the deposit to his deposit history.

This process may be important for statistical purposes which could help in finding the top sales or bidding in specific months, days or over weekends and occasions.
