This module uses PayPal as the backend, this means all transactions are real 
hard transactions in USD. By default, this module sets the rate at 
OS$1 = 1 US Cent, eg - OS$300 = US$3.00. Payments are confirmed by the buyer 
through PayPal's standard purchasing interface; the simulator is then notified 
via PayPal IPN of the payment - and will process the original request.


Configuring this module:
Add the following sections to your OpenSim.ini file


[PayPal]
    Enabled = true
    
    ; The URL to reference PayPal by
    ; can be either www.paypal.com or www.sandbox.paypal.com
    PayPalURL = www.paypal.com
    
    ; Fetch email addresses from User grid service; default is false
    AllowGridEmails = true
    
    ; Allow group PayPal accounts; default is false
    AllowGroups = true
        
[PayPal Users]
; Addresses of Recievers/Sellers PP user accounts
; One per line, ie:
Adam Frisby="adam@deepthink.com.au"
Snoopy Pfeffer="snoopy.pfeffer@yahoo.com"
;Plaza Builder="donations.osgrid@gmail.com"
; ...

[PayPal Groups]
; Addresses of Recievers/Sellers PP group accounts
; One per line, ie:
;a683cc8a-a5cc-4c40-87bc-ebcfbcfb1456="mygroup.account@yahoo.com"
; ...


How the PayPal Users section is formatted:
One line per user, this should be the avatar name. The email address is the 
primary email address used for the PayPal account that their funds will be 
received by. Users not listed in this section will not be able to receive 
funds unless AllowGridEmails is set to true (however any user can send them.)

How the PayPal Groups section is formatted:
One line per group, this should be the group uuid. The email address is the 
primary email address used for the PayPal account that their funds will be 
received by. Groups not listed in this section will not be able to receive 
funds.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
