Re: Paypal payments and IPN

The Paypal gem hasn’t been updated in a little while as far as I know;
I’m sure Tobi is pretty busy with Shopify…

I’ve made some updates to the gem to enable SSL-encrypted buttons that
have been submitted to Tobi; If you want to take a look, check out:

and

You’ll still need to get the latest gem from leetsoft, but update the
gem with the source in the above links.

To get things to work, I put the following in my
app/helpers/[controller]_helper.rb:

Start

require ‘paypal’

module PaypalHelper
include Paypal::Helpers
end

End

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.

Thanks,

Paul
