I need someone to teach me how to use the PayPal Adaptive Payments API...
I need to learn to use the PayPal API for two distinct reasons:
1) I need to use the Adaptive Payments API to set up a "payment plan" using pre-approval for students of mine who cannont pay full class tuition in one payment. For example, I want to preauthorize $445, but only charge $222.50 for week 1, then the other $222.50 at the end of week two. The $222.50 at the end of week two was being held (preapproved), but not charged. This is exactly what I want to do and it is easily done with the adaptive payments api and pre-approval. I want to know how to do it.
2) I need to use the Adaptive Payments API to set up a "Parallel Payments" arrangement (as shown on pp25-26 on the attachment). This means I want a website customer to be able to press the "buy now" button, then have the money be proportionally split and sent to me and one or more individuals simultaneously.
MY LEVEL OF PAYPAL EXPERIENCE:
I am an intermediate level of understanding of paypal. I know how to create custom payment pages. I know how to use variables in some instances. But I have never used any other service other than Website Payments Standard. I would like a step-by-step helper to learn to use the api for adaptive payments.
The winning bidder and I can speak on the telephone. I don't anticipate taking more than 60 minutes (1hour).
