    Hey everybody,

    I had a quick question on if you have the time to answer it. Is there any way to use eShop with PayPal Merchant Services so you don't have to leave your site to check out?

    Thanks for the time, I appreciate it.

    No it isn't that would require SSL, which most most people don't have.

    here's my question, like the one above, /when/ might eShop work with PayPal Merchant Services and support SSL?

    i like eShop and i like PayPal and i really like selling things online. if 'coachctv' needed to add SSL to their website ... then ... even if they dont have it now ... they could just add it, right? so would i.

    people have been doing SSL for what ... a decade now? i can read. i can type. i can figure it out. and my hosting provider charges me less than a hundred bucks a year to generate a key, reserve a dedicated ip address and fire up the SSL certificate for my domain name.

    (most people? who are most people? we arent most people.)

    if eShop were "pre-integrated" to work with PayPal Merchant Services ... or if there were a widget or a plug-in or a even a "pay for" version of eShop that cost $19.99 well then i'd just buy it. happily.

    and i bet i'm not the only one.

    (esp. once PayPal lists eShop on its merchant services page as having been pre-configured to work)

    Knock, knock, knock.

    who's there?

    you guessed it. Opportunity.

    currently there are no plans for this. eShop is open source, so if someone wants to add this in, then they are free to do so.

    eShop is free and will always remain so.
