PayPal Express Checkout Digital Goods
PayPal Express Checkout is the most popular method of integrating PayPal payments using web service APIs. It has many advantages over PayPal Standard including advanced features and flexibility.
In this demo kit we take advantage of these advanced features to integrate the Digital Goods experience into CodeIgniter PayPal Express Checkout.
CodeIgniter PayPal Integration Demo Kit
Our FREE CodeIgniter PayPal Library includes basic samples of many PayPal API calls that work out of the box. These samples are simply the individual calls on their own, though, and may not provide the necessary guidance if you are not already familiar with the PayPal API calls you will be working with.
This demo kit is based on our CodeIgniter PayPal Library, but it includes a fully functional static shopping cart displayed within a basic Bootstrap design, and the PayPal Express Checkout APIs are fully integrated into this demo. This provides an in depth look at exactly what calls are made and when within the process of a shopping cart checkout in CodeIgniter.
