Any that uses PayPal on their site, might want to spend some time playing in the PayPal sandbox:

https://developer.paypal.com

Very interesting and makes life much easier.

On a similar note, there is a PayPal Developers Conference in New Orleans. It's too bad they chained it to the ebay conference, but worthwhile non-the-less.

This will be great to test the IPN on this as I've never managed to get it to work properly live.

I figured out the IPN finally, but the SandBox would be nice. American Express is beginning to question all the $.05 charges on my card I've been using for testing....

I really like the PayPal model though - everything is HTML form based, using hidden parameters to send the appropriate information. It was very smart since no external components are needed.

LOL. Sounds pretty familiar.

PayPal has one of the best documented payment APIs, IMHO.

One thing I miss though is a gateway without having to actually create an HTML form (or using that awkward JavaScript automatic submit).

Do you know you are allowed to have one business and one personal PayPal account? Just test and then do immediate, free, refunds.

No doubt that paypal is one of the best online services. Several smaller ones have errupted, but I feel none are like paypal. Are people using stormpay a lot as well?

Never tried that one, but I've seen a few business sites which have the option to Pay by StormPay.

I like PayPal though - gets me my money where I need it :)

How can I setup two accounts in PayPal (personal + business) in such a way that I don't have to pay fees for refunds?

Haven't got it so far. Sure, I can create 2 accounts with different emails, but how does it know when not to charge for a refund?

Hi,

I have 2 paypal accounts to do testing, one for business and one personal. Each account has to have it's own bank account and email address. As soon as you buy something from yourself, you are able to go in and do a complete refund from the business account. Your payment goes back to the personal account and transaction fees are refunded to your business account. I have run small payments through all day and never had a problem. When you open the personal account, you do have to verify it before you can send payments.

Hope I helped,

Cyndi

Do both accounts have the same owner details, apart from the company name?

Hi,

No you are allowed to have a business and a personal account. They just want two different email addresses and bank accounts. I use my regular email for my business and a hotmail for my personal. Both are under my name and address. One good thing is you can try setting up accounts and it will tell you what you did wrong. Like another account is using this bank account, email address, etc. So I would just try it out. Just be sure you verify the new account wants it is set up or it won't let you send money from it. It's simple, just can't remember exactly what it was.
