Support » Plugin: EZ PayPal » [Plugin: Easy PayPal] Sale of a link, not download

  • Resolved AmesWorld


    Hi, it appears your plugin requires a downloadable product? We’re looking to sell limited game-play on a Flash game. We’d need a link delivered, with the ability to pass in the transaction_id (txn_id) from the purchase as a parameter to the SWF. Does this sound doable with your plugin? Or do you have a solution that would work for this? Thanks!

    You will need to do some programming to do this. The way I would do it is to pick up the txn_id from the sales table in the DB using a php script. And to deliver the link to your buyer, I would modify the file ez-delivery.php.

    On a separate note, I am working on a subscription module to work with ezPayPal, with the ability to sell text link ads on your blogs. But it will take some time before I can roll it out.

    I’m looking to do something similar. Were you able to edit the code to direct to a link instead of a download? Can you provide some tips? Thanks!


    I’m having a similar issue. I want to license software not be denying access to the application but by providing a license number. So, I want users to download the application beforehand, then use Easy Paypal to purchase a license key. My only problem is that I don’t see how to get proof of a transaction. I need to get a transaction id and the buyer email when they complete a transaction, and need to send them an email with the new license key.

    Is this possible?

    Well, I purchased your .95 support, but can’t seem to get my question in. Anyway, my last post was it. Hopefully you can help me. Thanks.

    I answered it in the support portal. Here it is again, just in case you didn’t get it:

    You will have to modify ez-office.php and ez-delivery.php to verify the transaction and hook up your license key generating module.

    ez-office is the IPN listener. Here, you will see where the customer email is sent. You will hook up your key generation before the email and send the email with it.

    ez-delivery is the customer return page after payment. Locate the place where the page source is generated and include your license key there as well.

    You may have to modify ez-shop.php, which is the shop front end. The table generated by it will need to contain a link to your free version of the product.

    This I guess is as far as I can guide you without actually looking at the code and giving you the actual variable names and line numbers (which will be like me writing the code, wouldn’t it? 🙂

    And no, you won’t need the pro version to do these things I just outlined. The pro version gives you a bunch of other features though, which you may need later on.
