Paypal integration

Jan 4, 2012 at 10:36 AM

I have downloaded the mvc music store application. My only problem is on the integration with Paypal shopping cart. Can I have a sample on how to integrate the application with paypal?

In anyone interested in integrating MVC music store with PAYPAL or any other credit systems

I am interested. I have yet to start on this part yet though. I have noticed many helpful topics in StackOverflow;

You might check this out;

But there's a catch as it cannot be implemented beyond PayPal Sandbox. If you want to apply it in the real PayPal website you'd be required to purchase a licence; -Documentation

There's also a Paypal Helper available. It's titled Paypal Helper for WebMatrix, but as it's just a Razor helper it would work in MVC as well.

Thanks @JonGalloway!

I'm wondering what would be the right work-flow to implement PayPal?

Right now in my project, when a user clicks Checkout he is proceeded to PayPal and then returned to AddressAndPayment upon sucessful payment.

Seems you have made some progress in your application on integration with Paypal. Can you please share the source code or attach it to my mail as I have a great need in implementing this application.

Sure. I have this in shoppingcart.cs

<form id="frm" action="@ViewBag.actionURL" method="post">
@{Html.RenderAction("PostToPaypal", "ShoppingCart");}

    var seq = 0;
       <input type="hidden" name="upload" value="1"/>
    foreach (var item in Model.CartItems)
        seq = seq + 1;
        var tmp_str = MvcHtmlString.Create("item_name_" + seq.ToString());   
       <input type="hidden" name="@tmp_str" value="@item.Product.Title"/>
        tmp_str = MvcHtmlString.Create("quantity_" + seq.ToString()); 
       <input type="hidden" name="@tmp_str" value="@item.Count" />
        tmp_str = MvcHtmlString.Create("amount_" + seq.ToString());    
       <input type="hidden" name="@tmp_str" value="@item.Product.Price"/>   

    <br />
        <input type="image" name="btnsubmit" src="" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online" /> | <a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">Back</a>

You can try the rest of the methods from this site

Feel free to ask any questions if you get stuck.
