PayPal shopping cart

Posted Mar 10, 2004 in Electronic Commerce.

My friend and I have been working on a school project that entails building a website for a coffee shop. The brief was to design the site with Macromedia's ColdFusion, and integrate a PayPal shopping cart system.

PayPal have made life very easy. Getting it to work is simply a matter of passing values from a form to their servers, and everything else is taken care of for you. This process made easier if your site is dynamic, because you only have to integrate the code once. A web panel allows you to alter the appearance of the cart (to a certain extent) to better blend in with your site. Pretty neat.
