Classic asp: Insert new record to access database from successful PayPal payment

Classic asp: Insert new record to access database from successful PayPal payment

Classic asp: Insert new record to access database from successful PayPal payment

(OP)
Hi

I have a website which uses classic asp and access database to store products which are only available to members who log in via the webpage. At the moment, a new member makes a manual payment (old school) and once payment is successful, a new record is created in the database (via admin webpage form to insert in to database) where the member can then log in and access member information. This of course takes time from getting the payment - to record created and new member notified of log in details.

I would like to improve this feature where I can take payment via PayPal for a new member on the website (via new member form) and once payment has been made online, write an asp script to add the new user details in to the database and email them with confirmation of account creation and temporary password so they can log in as soon as they have made payment.

Can this be done and how would I capture return values from PayPal to create the database insert script?

Many thanks for any help.

I have done this with Authorize.Net, never used PayPal but I think it can be done. I would start with the search feature in this website and googling "paypal classic asp".

Use the PDT form fields and parse the values.
