Payment processing in Rails - Book and Plugin recommendation


#1

Hello,

I’m going to develop a Ruby on Rails application for selling my
widgets, what to you guys recommend for gathering required info for a
newbie in Online Commerce?!?

How do you rate these books?

Apress - Beginning Ruby on Rails E-Commerce: From Novice to Professional
http://www.apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=10178

PragProg - Payment Processing with Paypal and Ruby
http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/jfpaypal/index.html

What about other books?

And which of the following plugins is good for PayPal integration (if
I decide to go that path)?

Thanks a lot,

I’m afraid I can’t say much from experience, but one plugin I didn’t
see mentioned there that I’ve heard good things about is Active
Merchant:

Good luck.
