Help for Paypal Developers

PayPal is awful. Good for users, both buyers and sellers, but awful for developers, with poor and often contradictory documentation, a sandbox feature that often doesn’t work at all like the live service…I could go on, but the difficulties have caused me to (fruitlessly) search high and low for an alternative.

Now, Smashing Magazine has published a piece by Eran Galperin, Getting Started With The PayPal API, which doesn’t make it easy but at least provides a credible road map.
