I wondered if anyone knew whether there was some sort of script/program available which would automatically extract invoice data/name and address data and send them (with formatting) to the printer?
It would make my life so much easier. :) Alternatively, does anyone know of a better system than Paypal? I am sure there are some which would be worth considering. I'm trading in the UK, btw.
mifi601: I'm not currently using IPN, is there any advantage to doing so?
All I'm really after is something similar to Mail Extractor that will do the work of copying and pasting data from the e-mails sent by ppal into tables (for the invoice) and wordpad or whatever for the address label.
If you have no clue about IPN, it's about server to server transaction. PayPal posts all important variables like name, date, amount, item, etc. directly to your server and then it's upto your server to process raw data into anything (email, invoice, pdf, etc.).
