I created the website on this class "Using PHP with MySQL" and used a shopping cart template but I don't know how I can add paypal payment system. Which course is teaching us how to do that?

You can use Paypal, but you will need to probably use the code they provide you for free to create a shopping cart. You might be able to substitute parameters & use yours.... I did this once a while ago & after you type in details, they give you code to paste into your html code. I think you will need separate code for every item you sell so it goes into shopping cart correctly & they provide that. I remember it being pretty easy. I think its under development tools somewhere in PayPal.

Hi. Naoufal, I took the course but the teacher didn't teach me how to integrate paypal. Maybe you are talking about a different course.

Oh that's very nice. Thank you very much Naoufal!! I really appreciate it. :)

Also thank you for the response Cindy!
