That looks like PayPal alternative.

What I need is how to interface a EXE to PayPal for our customers. We 
currently use Payguradian which is a stand alone CC payment system that 
allows interface to our EXE via exchanged XML files. Note works well in 
stand alone but does not work for RD instances since RDs are single 
Windows OS with multiple users sharing resources and PG is installed as 
a service . But some customers want to use Paypal  as the processor 
since PP has a special setup to barrow money then payback via the CC 
transactions on sales. So what I need is a method to interface to PayPal 
with data passed from the EXE and return results back to EXE. But I. 
kind of lost on WWW interfaces

Ok.


Let me do a couple of tests if I can do it.

We use Chilkat for loads of stuff (ie, xml,http,rest,sftp).

It is pretty simple once you get the gist of how they do things.

Looked at Chilkat seems it must be run on a web server????? Simply 
loading the html examples into a browser does not work.

We have about 30 customers and I simply don't want to have to setup a 
web server for each since these people are generally about 30 years 
behind in anything IT.

Using curl is interesting but that means setting up  BASH on Windows for 
each user. ARRG

The PayPal coding looks straight forward enough if you are running a web 
site but for stand alone EXE not so much.

Seems like there should be a way to send the code to and receive 
response direct from the EXE.

Any ideas?????

Jim,

You don't need Chilkat but you can use it in your Xbase++ program. You can 
also use Xb2Net and possibly even ASInet to accomplish this.

You certainly don't need a Web Server -- just a Web Client -- which can be 
implemented (in different ways) as part of your Xbase++ application.

>Using curl is interesting but that means setting up BASH on Windows for

If you don't want to implement a web client in Xbase++, you can of course 
use curl -- it is available since Windows 10 (build 17063) as part of the 
command prompt. And can be downloaded as a standalone executable (for free) 
for DOS and older Windows versions. You don't need bash at all.

I had a quick look at the PayPal Rest API documentation, and it seemed very 
straight forward even though quite complex. You can probably implement this 
quite easily with Xbase++ 2.0 (and even with Xbase++ 1.9) using Xb2Net 
and/or Chilkat.

>Seems like there should be a way to send the code to and receive

I would be happy to implement this API -- or a subset of it -- for you, or 
help you to implement it yourself. I have some experience with implementing 
REST API calls with JSON requests and responses using Xbase++, Xb2Net, and 
Chilkat.

Send me an email if you would like my help with this.
