paypal buttons not secure    
Written by Anonymous User (#1862-403) from northern Illinois   (Wednesday, February 26, 2003)
Writer is with: http://
Strengths:   good, simple to understand help to secure button use  
Weaknesses:   no comment  
Details:   I really love when someone explains coding in terms that I can understand, instead of using nerdy computereeze. I need all of the information easy to find in a search for help on different aspects of web design and this one was quite informative and did not bash paypal like alot of doomsayers do.

Section Three is not accurate    
Written by Anonymous User (#1467-194)  (Wednesday, January 15, 2003)
Writer is with: http://iva.tech.nu
Strengths:   Helpful for new users to create buttons and add to their site  
Weaknesses:   Section three allows the full URL to be diplayed in the address bar.  
Details:   Since the full URL is in the address bar, all you have to do is change the amount and press enter. This will add a second item with amount you want to pay. You then remove the original item and you now have everything from the original item with the amount you want. IPN is the Feature you would use to protect the "would be" user that want to change the price. With IPN you can populate an order number as in the example. You would then use the IPN feature to validate the amount and order number you used on the front end. If the amount and order information is correct, you can then process the order.

Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   Thank you for your comments Steve. We added a "Javascript Post" example to hide the URL. IPN is the safest way to develop on a Paypal ecommerce strategy. We also created a poll for readers to tell us what they think about Button Factory payments and security. We'll tally your Vote!

Missed the point on security    
Written by Anonymous User (#1286-72) from Omaha, NE   (Wednesday, January 15, 2003)
Strengths:   Quick overview, good for starters  
Weaknesses:   Missed the purpose of security with section three  
Details:   The URL is displayed in the shopping cart they have as a demo. They may have hid the code, but put it out for everyone to mess with in the address bar. The PayPal Instant Payment Notification feature is the way to secure the payment and validate the payment has not been tampered.
Review Based On:   18 Month(s) of usage  
Rebuttal From Listing Owner:   Sellers might perceive the Button Factory as a secure e-commerce solution when in fact it is not. This articles explains why it is not. The only way to create a secure Paypal ecommerce application is using Instant Payment Notification (IPN) or to purchase a solution that uses IPN. Several links have been added to the article based on suggestions.
