I can't say how grateful I am to Larry for this book. I already used the first example to set up a e-business, selling a digital product, and now I am close to finishing a second one, based on the book's second example. I am hardly a PHP wizard but I have learned so much from Larry's books. I know how to read and debug the PHP code and the MySQL stored procedures and I can figure out what changes to make in order to tweak the example code to my requirements. But at the moment, I am a bit stuck. Two of the concepts for the Coffee store I really like: no user registration and payment processing over IPN without exiting the website. For the latter, the book uses Authorize.net as a payment gateway, but because only American customers can avail of their service, Larry recently in his blog explained how the same would work with PayPal's Website Payments Pro. You can probably imagine my disappointment when last night I discovered that PayPal only offers to service to customers in the UK. So now I am back to Website Payments Standard/Express Checkout. I have looked at other gateways such as Moneybookers.com and none offer something similar to Payments Pro. Here is my question: What changes (and at what point in the check out process) would I have to make to convert the payment method in example 2 to Website Payments Standard/Express Checkout? I may still end up using Moneybookers.com because they offer national debit cards and their fees even seem better than PayPal's. In some European countries, PayPal didn't really catch on or -quite undeservedly, I think- got bad publicity. Greetings from the Emerald Isle and thanks for any help! Michael
