FileMaker PayPal Integration
Our FileMaker PayPal custom functions make it quick and easy to integrate PayPal’s API platform into your FileMaker database solution. Simply open the solution file to load the PayPal custom functions into the system, and they will be available to be used within all of your FileMaker databases.
The functions work exactly the same as any other function you use within a FileMaker calculation. You simply pass in request parameters and the function handles the rest.
All PayPal response data is stored in the solution file in a single table as global fields so the data is immediately accessible via your FileMaker script to populate your own tables/layouts, make calculations, etc.

Scodigo PHP SmartPill
Our FileMaker PayPal solution file is developed using the Scodigo PHP SmartPill plugin for FileMaker. The SmartPill plugin enables the use of PHP code within FileMaker which greatly enhances the power and flexibility of the platform.
Because of this ability, we were able to integrate our PayPal PHP SDK Class Library directly into this FileMaker PayPal solution file. This is what drives the generation of PayPal API requests, communication with PayPal’s API servers, and the parsing of PayPal API responses into global fields for easy access within FileMaker.
The FileMaker PayPal solution file includes a license for use with this solution, so you will not need to purchase your own license.
