What Paypal Donations Is:

Paypal Donations is a complete system that controls donations and how they are received via backend interfacing between your vBulletin server and Paypal's payment gateway server. The beauty of this marriage of servers is quite simply automation of the donation process as well as security of the transactions for both you, the administrator, and your users. With the Paypal donations system installed on your forums, you will be able to bring in that much needed income to not only keep your forums alive, but also to help defer costs of doing so to the users of your site without having to bug everyone and beg for money.

This seamless integration of Paypal as your backend payment processor not only provides your user with a well known and safe payment processor, but you are saved the hassle of opening a merchant account with your banking institution as well as saves you time in the process as it takes only a few short minutes to sign up with Paypal if you are not already an account holder there.
System Requirements

OS: vBulletin 3.5 (if you are running this already, then your server has the required installation, GD libraries are required, as well as CURL capabilities for this system to work)

Things To Do Before Installation

Direct File Edits To vB Resident Files: 1 (needed to group templates in AdminCP)
File Uploads: 34 (Of which 18 will be deleted after installation, leaving a total of 16 Files on your server)
Direct Database Queries: None, the installer does these for you
Direct Plugin Installation: None, the installer does these for you
Direct Template Modification: None, the installer installs all new templates, and modifies the resident templates as needed

The uninstaller will remove all modifications (to include the templates) should you decide to remove the system from your server.

How To Install / Upgrade Paypal Donations

Installation and Upgrading are as easy as a human like me could make it. Simply upload all the files from the archive to your server keeping the folder hierarchy intact and then point your browser to the installation file. On most servers it will be one of the following:Just follow the prompts from there folks, the installer does all the database, template, plugin, phrasing, and settings automatically for you!

If you ever decide to remove the system, just upload the install files and folder again and run the installer and choose uninstall. The uninstaller will remove any and all modifications that it did to your files, database, and templates automatically as well. Its as easy as you can get!

Time to install: less than five minutes depending on your upload speed.


Steps To Perform After Installation
  1. You must make sure that you have either a Business or Premiere account with Paypal.
    1. If you do not, then you will need to upgrade your Paypal account to that level before this system will work.
  2. You must have Paypal's IPN (Instant Payment Notification) turned on in your Paypal Profile.
    1. You do not need to have it pointing at any particular file for this system to work as the system will tell Paypal where to send the IPN to credit your users and notify you of the transaction.
  3. You will need to run through the donations settings at the end of the installer and make sure that you have all the required information in there.
  4. Please note that this system can be placed into test mode (default setting is ON when system is first installed).
    1. This setting tells the system whether to speak with the real Paypal Server for transactions or with Paypal's Sandbox (testing) server. If you wish to test the system before going live you will need to have access to Paypal's Sandbox server, you can sign up for access there at: http://developer.paypal.com.
  5. You will need to input your Paypal Account Email into the settings
  6. You will need to input the full URL to your donate.php file so that your users can make it back to your site after payment
  7. You will need to input the full URL to your ppverify.php file so that Paypal can send your IPNs to you and your system can process the information and give your users credit for the donation

Final words

You will need to add a link somewhere in your navigation system for vBulletin pointing your users to the donations page (if you installed the vBadvanced Module then you have a link on the home page, but you might want to add one in the nav bar as well), as well as setting up your paypal account to give IPN responses to you, you can do this in your Paypal Profile under Instant Payment Notification.

To play in PayPal's Sandbox you will need to be registered with their developer network and setup a few sandbox accounts to play with the sandbox properly. I have throughly tested the sandbox functionality, and it is working until they decide to change coding standards again.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this hack, Please feel free to send feedback to [email protected] !
Thank you!

If I activate this module on the vb portal page, my page is white with absolutely nothing being displayed. If I disable it all is well. Is there something in the module we have to change?

here is the missing one

adv_portal_donate_goals_user

it works fine when it's aligned to the right, but when the paypal module is aligned on the left it makes all modules centered in one big column. i couldn't tell if there was a missing <table> some where, because it shows up correctly on the right side. :ermm:

Using your above code works perfectly now... excellent work.

Can you make a new module that adds the "goals_user" template and adds all these ones correctly
(these are somewhat different to your original module you supplied).

As Mith stated, the goals_user template is missing but that will only effect you if you are advertising your goals. In order to get it to work, I had to change the option from file based to template based and in the section to enter a single template I used adv_portal_donate.
I am using VB3.5.1 with CMPS 2.0

Thank you for trying to help. Unfortunately the module is not working for me. If I enable it as a file, it only displays the title bar and if i enable it as a template it displays everything EXCEPT the information of the members who donated.
