paypal_adaptive

This gem is a lightweight wrapper for the paypal adaptive payments API.

This is very much a work in progress! Use at your own risk or submit bug fixes :)

Before you need start, read the API manual https://www.x.com/docs/DOC-1531 and check out the forums on http://x.com It'll be invaluable for parameters and error messages. The gem keeps the request/response as hashes so you will have to read the manual to make the proper calls. I made a few test cases for further examples at http://github.com/tc/paypal_adaptive/tree/master/test/

HOWTO

Create paypal_adaptive.yml to your config folder:

development:
  environment: "sandbox"
  username: "sandbox_username"
  password: "sandbox_password"
  signature: "sandbox_signature"
  application_id: "sandbox_app_id"
  ssl_cert_file:

test:
  environment: "sandbox"
  username: "sandbox_username"
  password: "sandbox_password"
  signature: "sandbox_signature"
  application_id: "sandbox_app_id"
  ssl_cert_file:

production:
  environment: "production"
  username: "my_production_username"
  password: "my_production_password"
  signature: "my_production_signature"
  application_id: "my_production_app_id"
  ssl_cert_file:

You can also use ENV variables when specifying your configuration. eg. <%= ENV[''paypal.username'] %>

Make the payment request:

pay_request = PaypalAdaptive::Request.new

data = {
"returnUrl" => "http://testserver.com/payments/completed_payment_request", 
"requestEnvelope" => {"errorLanguage" => "en_US"},
"currencyCode"=>"USD",  
"receiverList"=>{"receiver"=>[{"email"=>"testpp_1261697850_per@nextsprocket.com", "amount"=>"10.00"}]},
"cancelUrl"=>"http://testserver.com/payments/canceled_payment_request",
"actionType"=>"PAY",
"ipnNotificationUrl"=>"http://testserver.com/payments/ipn_notification"
}

pay_response = pay_request.pay(data)

if pay_response.success?
  redirect_to pay_response.approve_paypal_payment_url
else
  puts pay_response.errors.first['message']
  redirect_to failed_payment_url
end

Once the user goes to pay_response.approve_paypal_payment_url, they will be prompted to login to Paypal for payment.

Upon payment completion page, they will be redirected to http://testserver.com/payments/completed_payment_request.

They can also click cancel to go to http://testserver.com/payments/canceled_payment_request

The actual payment details will be sent to your server via "ipnNotificationUrl" You have to create a listener to receive POST messages from paypal. I added a Rails metal template in the templates folder which handles the callback.

Additionally, you can make calls to Paypal Adaptive's other APIs: payment_details, preapproval, preapproval_details, cancel_preapproval, convert_currency, refund

Input is just a Hash just like the pay method. Refer to the Paypal manual for more details.

Certificate validation

You can set the location of the .pem file you wish to use for SSL certificate validation in paypal_adaptive.yml for each environment, e.g.:

development:
  environment: "sandbox"
  username: "sandbox_username"
  password: "sandbox_password"
  signature: "sandbox_signature"
  application_id: "sandbox_app_id"
  ssl_cert_file: "/path/to/your/cacert.pem"

If you don't set ssl_cert_file then paypal_adaptive will check for certificates in /etc/ssl/certs if this location exists, otherwise falling back to the cacert.pem file included with paypal_adaptive.
