Hello, I want to emulate a POST request to Paypal. Originally a POST request
is sent from the user (through a form) and the user is redirected to
paypal's site. Now, what I want to do is to emulate a POST request (so that
the surfer can't see some of the hidden fields of the form) and to deter
tampering. (If they could see all the fields, they could just create their
own form , and just change the amount).
fsockopen to emulate POST, but that doesn;t redirect the user, using header
will direct the user to the paypal site, but then I have to use a GET
request and then once again variables are visible and modifiable.
a PHP script (toPaypal.php, say) that is called when a surfer wants to buy
something for a product for $5 , say.
The Product form will direct to the toPaypal.php script that creates a POST
request and sends the request and the surefer to Paypal.
Any ideas? or did I just make this confusing? One solution I guess is to
just double check the total amount credited to the merchant account matches
the product. But then I ask this question out of curosity.
