PayPal's Digital Goods for Express Checkout service is a wonderful payment solution with disjointed documentation and an unfortunately verbose name.
I created the PayPal Digital Goods PHP Library to connect the dots in the documentation and offer a PayPal library that is friendly to humans.
This repository is designed to do three things:
- demonstrate the PayPal PHP library in action;
- demonstrate how to setup the PHP library for your own use;
- show how to include the PayPal Digital Goods PHP Library as a submodule in your applications main Git repository.
To run the examples for yourself, clone the entire folder somewhere onto your server, eg.
git clone --recursive git://github.com/thenbrent/paypal-digital-goods-php-examples.git
Note the use of the
--recursive flag. This must be included to clone the library as it is included as a Git submodule.
Once cloned, visit

For convenience, this example uses my PayPal Sandbox Credentials. To test with your own API credentials, create a sandbox seller account and request it be set as a Digital Goods account in this x.com forums topic.
Login to the account and get your API credentials from the API Access page.
