    Member Accounts and Paypal

    I am not very good at coding I started off with HTML then stopped and come back and all this new coding and Im just so bewildered.

    Let me first tell you what I would like to do.

    I want to have a membership website, where there are three selections.

    1. Free Matches - still need to be registered

    2. Premium Account- i.e. $20 a year

    3. Battles where you must pay a virtual credit in which you must pay with real money.

    Ive done some research and paypal has an Xpress Checkout that allows API of virtual credit system.
    "
    Though I'm not sure how it would recieve my users exact account "bank"

    Also to be honest I'm not even sure how to be able to get users to sign up with there own information, then that information is processed into a profile, with a selection for BANK

    Can anyone help me please. I can offer some more explanation if need be.

    Ummm...if you are going to tackle something like PayPal payments, you better have a *LOT* more experience under your belt. Make a couple of mistakes with payments, and you just looking for a lawsuit.

    What you want isn't overly hard, but it's not trivial either.

    In any case, you haven't presented us with your database design. That has to be the first step.

    May I suggest a simple solution? You by the sounds of what you are trying to do, most of this can easily be accomplished with Wordpress. Wordpress is basically a content management system / blog platform. It has plugins that can manage memberships (s2Member), profiles with all the register and login done for you (buddypress). s2Member also integrates with PayPal already.

    If you need assistence with setting up something like this get in touch and we can deal with the development for you. It sounds quite complex for someone like yourself with very limited knowledge.
