For those of you interested in my forthcoming “Effortless E-commerce with PHP and MySQL” book, you can now look at the first example site at http://ecom1.dmcinsights.com. This project is covered in Part II of the book (four chapters total) and demonstrates:
- Selling access to content (i.e., selling virtual products)
- User management
- Content management via administrative pages
- Using PayPal’s Website Payments Standard system
There are instructions on the site for how you can access it and you can even download all the source code. There’s a form on every page through which you can ask questions or post comments. I welcome any and all feedback you may have!
I’m currently developing the second example site now, and will also make that publicly available when it’s ready. Thanks!
