Need to sell products. Paypal plugin bring a cart to your Geeklog site.

The PayPal plugin allows you to have an online product list and accept payment via PayPal. Products can be downloadable as program or pdf files, or can be physic as books, CD, DVD...

Paypal plugin handle subscriptions. You can sell access to your content.

Instructions for (un)installation of the paypal plugin for geeklog.


Require PHP 5.2 or greater. I also recommend using the jQuery plugin to support lightbox feature in the shop.

Back-up your sites database.

  * visit {site_url}/admin/database.php

Auto Install

1. As one of your site's Root users

  • Visit {site_url}/admin/plugins.php
  • Upload the plugin archive (.zip) : Select it on your HD and press Upload.

2. If the installation completed successfully you can skip to the next step. Otherwise, check the geeklog error.log for errors.

  • /logs/error.log

3. Set the necessary permissions to /logs/paypal_downloads.log.

  • chmod 666 /logs/paypal_downloads.log

4. Modify paypal's config online to reflect your site and suite your needs.

Take special note of the $_PAY_CONF['paypalURL'] variable.  It should be for testing on paypal's development site.  For live web sites it should point to

5. Update the security settings. By default the paypal plugin will grant administrative rights to the plugin to the Root Group.  Shopping (purchasing) privileges will be granted to the "Logged-In Users" group.  Viewing privileges will be granted to the "All Users" group. By adding users or groups as members of the "Paypal Admin" or "Paypal Users" or "Paypal Viewers" group you can control who has administrative, shopping, and viewing privileges.

  • Visit {site_url}/admin/user.php
  • Visit {site_url}/admin/group.php

6. Create images folders

Under your public_html/images folder, create a paypal folder. And create 4 new folders in this paypal folder : attributes, cache, categories and products

Manual install

Geeklog can auto install plugins. See above.

If you need to manualy install the plugin.

  • Backup your Geeklog database because the paypal plugin adds tables. You can do this with the built in database backup facility in the Admin menu.
  • Uncompress the paypal plugin archive while in the path-to-geeklog/plugins directory. The archive will create a directory called paypal.
  • Under your directory, create a directory called paypal.
  • Under /admin/plugins/ directory, create a directory called paypal.
  • Change to your path-to-geeklog/plugins/paypal directory.
  • Copy the files in the admin directory to the admin/plugins/paypal directory you created in step 4.
  • Copy the files in the public_html directory to the public_html/paypal directory you created in step 3.
  • Under /images/ directory, create a directory called site1.
  • Under /images/site1/ directory, create a directory called paypal.
  • Under /images/site1/paypal directory, create a directory called products.
  •  Under /images/site1/paypal directory, create a directory called cache.
  • Go to the plugin administration page. The paypal plugin should show up with a link to install it. Click this link. The install page will tell you if it was successful or not. If not, examine the Geeklog error.log in path-to-geeklog/logs/ to see what the problem was. Fix the problem and re-install.
  • Create images folders (see above).

Paypal account

A paypal business account is required in order for this plugin to operate correctly.  In addition, there are several items in your paypal account that must be set up correctly in order purchases to be logged.

1. Create a PayPal business account (note: you can update an existing account to a business account by logging into the paypal account and clicking on "Upgrade Account")

  • Visit

2. Verify your account.  This is needed to transfer money out of your paypal account and into a bank account.  You can do this from your paypal account.

3. Update seller preferences.  From the "My Account" tab or your Paypal account, select the "Profile" sub-tab.  Click on "Instant Payment Notification Preferences".  For french accounts "Mon compte >> Préférences >> Préférences des ventes >> Préférences de Notification instantanée de paiement". Edit the preferences.  You want to ENABLE instant payment notification.  In the box provided for a URL, enter:

  • {site_url}/paypal/ipn.php

4. Update optional seller preferences.  From the "My Account" tab or your Paypal account, select the "Profile" sub-tab.  You may want to consider entering information for the following date:

  • Sales Tax
  • Shipping Calculations
  • Payment Receiving Preferences
  • Reputation
  • Website Payment Preferences
  • Custom Payment Pages
  • Invoice Templates
  • Language Encoding


0. Back-up your site database, just in case.

  • Visit {site_url}/admin/database.php

1. As one of your site's Root users, run the plugin's uninstallation script.

  • Visit {site_url}/admin/plugins.php and edit the paypal plugin. Select the delete button.

2. Delete the directories and files created during the plugins installation.

  • rm -rf /paypal
  • rm -rf /admin/plugins/paypal
  • rm -rf /plugins/paypal


To upgrade an existing Paypal plugin installation, please upload all the files from the archive to their respective location, replacing the older versions of the same files.

To version 1.1+

  • For upgrading to version 1.1 do not make an automatic upgrade by uploading the archive via the admin panel, it won't work. Please make a manual (ftp) upload of the files.
  • Once you've uploaded all the files, log into your site as a member of the Root group (e.g. as user Admin). Go to the Admin's “Plugins” panel.
  • You can upgrade just by clicking the icon “Update” or click on the “edit” link for the paypal plugin. You will be presented with an “Update” button. Click that button and you should get a message that the upgrade was successful. That's all.
  • Go to the paypal plugin online config to review your settings.
  • Remove old BaseIPN.class.php and IPN.class.php files from the plugins/paypal folder as they are now include in the classes folder. You can also remove your plugins/paypal/config.php file and your public_html/paypal/cache folder

To version 1.2+

To be compatible with auto upgrade (by uploading the plugin archive) in the future and with Multi plugin, the "products" and "cache" folders where the paypal plugin stores product images had to be move to a new public_html/images/paypal/ folder.

  • Move public_html/paypal/images/products folder -> public_html/images/paypal/products
  • Move public_html/paypal/images/cache folder -> public_html/images/paypal/cache
  • Move these folders before uploading the plugin archive (auto update) or your product images will be lost. Make sure these new folders are writable.

To version 1.4+

  • Under your public_html/images/paypal folder, create 2 new folders : attributes and categories

To version 1.5+

  • Before upgrading: create a new paypal folder under data folder. Then move your files folder and content from plugins/paypal folder to data/private/paypal folder.

To version 1.6+

  • Before upgrading: create a new paypal_data folder under data folder. Then move your proversion files from plugins/paypal/proversion folder to data/paypal_data/proversion

  • public_html/images/paypal/attributes
  • public_html/images/paypal/cache
  • public_html/images/paypal/categories
  • public_html/images/paypal/products

They must be writable.

Sell dowloadable products

Under your data folder create a paypal folder. Then create a files folder in this new paypal folder. Files that will be sold via the paypal plugin should be placed in this files directory.

You can set a product to be "Downloadable" and you can choose the file in the drop-down list on the product edit page.

Sell access to your content | Subscriptions

With paypal plugin 1.2+ your can sell access to content of your site or establish management paying members of a club or association.

This new version 1.2 introduces a new type of product, subscritions. This feature allows you to create membership for one or several days, weeks, months or years. Users who subscribe online are automatically added to a group you specify. Group members can then access content reserved for them during the entire period of their membership. Once it is completed, the member is automatically removed from the group.

1. Create a group

Go to your group manager and create a new group. Set group name and description. Include All users and Logged-in Users security group. Then save.

2. Create a new membership

Go to your paypal plugin admin area and hit the link "Create a new membership". Set name and short description, price, subscription duration, and group to add subscribers to.

Add a picture if needed and save.

3. Now restrict access to your content

Edit the items you wish to reserve your membership. Select the group "Members" from the dropdown menu, uncheck the read access for anonymous and logged-in users (members). You can edit the permissions of a story, a topic, a forum (forum plugin), a wiki page (dokuwiki plugin), a product (paypal plugin), a media (mediagallery)...

4. Promote membership

Now tell the world you get content to sell.

Users who subscribe online are automatically added to the group you created in step 1. Group members can now access to reserved content during the entire period of their membership. Once the membership expires, the member is automatically removed from the group.

Manage shippings

You need to create first a shipping destination, then create a shipper, and then create a shipping rate where you choose the shipper, the minimum weight (in kilograms), the maximum weight (in kilograms), the destination and the shipping amount.

How does this work?

Since paypal plugin 1.4 products can be set to Physical, Downloadable or Virtual/Service. For "Physical" product, you can set a weight (in kilograms) if you want to use shipping feature, and choose between "Apply shipping costs" or "No shipping - Free shipping" for each product. Like this the cart can handle the total weight of items and can provide the display of different shipping costs according to destinations and services.  "Downloadable" or "Virtual/Service" products do not use shipping features.

Pay by check

Since paypal plugin 1.3.0 logged-in users can choose to pay by check. When they validate their order, the system create a private IPN and the status of there purchase is pending. They can't download the product if the product is downloadable, and they are not added to a group is the product is a subscription.

1. Review transaction

When admin receive the payment by check, he need to valide the order. For this go to the transaction page. Link is in ID column on the **Purchases** page.

2. Edit order

On the transaction page you will find a link to edit at the end of the **Status: pending** line.

3. confirm

Confirm you want to validate the order as there is no undo.

 4. Done

Status of the purchase is set to complete, downloadable products or subscriptions are validate.


Paypal plugin can display several blocks.

  • Cart: Since paypal 1.5, if needed you can add a cart block: Create a php block on the blocks admin page and set function to phpblock_paypal_cart
  • Random product: Also since paypal 1.5, if needed you can add a random product block: Create a php block on the blocks admin page and set function to phpblock_paypal_randomBlock
  • Shop: If needed you can add a shop block: Create a php block on the blocks admin page and set function to phpblock_paypal_displayProducts. Arguments :  phpblock_paypal_displayProducts(category, column) where category is the category ID(optional) and column is column number from 1 to 4 (optional)|

Shop in a static page

You can add your shop (products display page) in a static php page (execute php):
echo phpblock_PAYPAL_displayProducts();

For Users

If jquery plugin is available and lightbox plugin is active, pictures products are display in a lightbox.

Users can print an online receipt for each purchases on the purchases history page. They also can find on this page a download link for each downloadable product they have purchased.


[paypal : XXX] where XXX is the product id display a link to product page.

[paypal_product : YYY] where YYY is the product id display a product block with buttons.


**Q.** Some HTML I tried to use in the product description got stripped out.

**A.** All HTML input (such as the product description field) gets check with geeklog's built in COM_checkHTML function.  That function depends on the contents of $_CONF['user_html'] and $_CONF['admin_html'] array variables found in the config.  Edit those to control what HTML is allowed in the paypal's HTML fields.


Since version 1.2, paypal pro version is available.

Why a Pro version?
To enable and encourage the future development of the plugin, a small financial contribution is requested. This contribution allows you to enjoy the following additional functions:

  • Notify expiration: When the subscription of a member will expire, messages are sent by email to the member and the administrator of the site. A message is sent X days before the end of the subscription, another the same day as the end of the subscription, then another the next day.
  • Manual subscription: Admin can create manual subscription.
  • Recurring payment: You can set a one time payment + recurring payments (billing frequency: day, week, month, year). The combination of billing frequency and billing period must be less than or equal to one year. For example, if the billing cycle is Month, the maximum value for billing frequency is 12. Similarly, if the billing cycle is Week, the maximum value for billing frequency is 52. Note If the billing period is SemiMonth, the billing frequency must be 1.
  • Handle attributes : Can be any attribute define by admin such as a version, color, size...

  • Sales history graphic for the last 12 months


Depuis la version 1.2, une version Pro du plugin Paypal est disponible.

Pourquoi une version Pro ?
Pour permettre et encourager le développement futur du plugin, une légère contribution financière est demandée. Cette contribution vous permet de profiter des fonctions supplémentaires suivantes:

  • Notification de fin de souscription : Lorsque la souscription d'un membre arrive à son terme, des messages sont envoyés par email au membre et à l'administrateur du site pour les prévenir. Un message X jours avant la fin de la souscription, un autre le jour même de la fin de la souscription, puis un nouveau le lendemain.
  • Souscription manuelle : L'administrateur peut créer manuellement une souscription.
  • Payement récurrants : vous pouvez proposer un payement unique et configurable, comme par exemple l'accès à un service, qui sera suivi de payements quotidiens, hebdomadaires, mensuels... correspondants à un abonnement.
