Paypal is a well-established online instant payment service. Paypal allows individuals and small businesses to avoid the expense involved in setting up and maintaining a Merchant account. (Average fees for a Merchant account seem to range around $200 in set up fees, and $15-20/month in gateway fees--with Paypal you'll only pay the transaction fees, which are about the same as most credit card processors charge.) Besides credit card transactions, Paypal is also a convenient way to send money via email, and it is widely used at sites such as eBay where it accounts for 53% of transactions. For more information on Paypal, visit their site:

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

This module permits you to use PayPal Web Accept to process payments in your Miva Merchant store. Your customers will be taken to the PayPal site to transfer the money for the purchase to your account. They will then be returned to your store's Invoice page (assuming that the transfer was successfully made. It also provides the ability to verify the transaction with PayPal's records from within admin.

Unlike most off-site payment modules (those payment modules which require your customer to leave Merchant to process the payment), this module takes advantage of advanced features offered by PayPal to assure that a record of the purchase is made in Merchant as soon as the money is transfered! In many other such modules, if something goes wrong and the customer does not return to Merchant no record is made of the order; even though the money was transfered to your account! That won't happen with this module. The customer does not need to return to the invoice screen for Merchant to make a record of the sale.

Perfect Defense for Foreign Issued Credit Cards 12/02/2004 - by Jelani Aitch from St. Louis, MO US
In addition to the great functionality of this module, which im rating as 5-Star, I highly recommend Paypal if you process orders that originate out of the country. My existing Merchant account is limited in fraud screening when it comes to Credit Cards issued by a foreign bank. Paypal fills the gap. I force all foreign customers to use Paypal. This module made the implementation of Paypal effortless. A quality product, as is all Viking Coder modules that I currently use.
Perfect Functionality 08/26/2004 - by Allen Freeman from Brecksville, OH US
If you want to accept Paypal through Miva, this is the way to go. Why spend a couple of hours writing your own code and testing its usability with Paypal when the Viking Coders module works perfectly -- and inexpensively!

Plus, the module is substantially better than the Paypal functionality built into the newer versions of Miva, with the ability to complete a BRANDED transaction -- something that you can't get directly from Miva.

This module is definitely worth it!
