Hi, I am planning a web application that involves the user paying via paypal when signing up, I just wondered if anyone had any suggestions on how to go about this.
My first idea is for the user to input there user name, password and email etc. Then it will move to the next page where the user must pay a fee via paypal, after this is completed an email is sent from paypal to my in box describing the transaction.
From this I need to send an email back to the user (which is included in the one from paypal) which contains a 10 character code or something along those lines. Now there is the problem, I can generate the code with PHP no problem but the question is how do I make my email client request the script and send the code.
I hope you can get the idea of what I am trying to achieve from this but if you have any better suggestions that would be great. I do not need any help with the code (MySQL / PHP etc) its just the concept of how I get the code from my server into an email.
Is it possible that my server executes the mail script when it receives a email from paypal?
Thanks to anyone that can help, Wolfy87.
