    Question Paypal Question

    Hi All,

    I am trying to make a shopping cart using paypal payment gateway.

    Here is a scenario:

    A customer visits my site, adds an item to the cart, clicks on the "checkout" button, he is then redirected to the paypal payment page.

    Now I have a question. Actually i want to send a download link automatically to my customer as soon as he buys my product.

    So my question would be, is there a way to tell my script that that customer has just finished with his payment and that my script would now send him the download link to his email.

    Look into the detailed descriptions of the input names and their values for shopping cart forms. I believe there is a way to have the user redirected to a page on your site that thanks them for their payment. You could use this input or combination of inputs (often two inputs must be set to carry out this sort of scenario) to redirect them to a page on your site once they have bought the item.

    But be careful! However this is done, there is no way that I am aware of to determine the payment method or its status, unless you have already set the payment method ahead of time to be one of the types that is instantly confirmed, like the buyer's own PayPal account.
