    Anyone have an idea how to create a PayPal iCal system? for my English students.

    I'm tyring to create a system where my students can login to my website, purchase x number of lessons, and then be sent to a calendar where they can reserve lesson times.

    I'm really hoping there's an existing web service or maybe pre-existing service for people who basically sell time. There must be other a slew of professionals who have websites where people buy time using a iCal or online calendar. I would think teachers, voice coaches, trainers, etc.

    Anyone using such a service or software? :confused:

    shared calendars

    I would recommend a shared Google calendar rather than trying to use iCal, as students can access it from a Mac or Win machine, and changes will appear instantly as there is no subscription/update process.

    thanks

    Thanks
    That makes sense, that way students can book using any computer, anywhere. I guess I could set up a "poor-mans" website and have students purchase lessons through PayPal and then send them an access code for the shared Google calendar. Of course it's not the automated system I had envisioned of a system that would restrict students from booking more lessons than they had purchased. This might be the best solution at this time until PayPal or ? create a more automated calendar/PayPal collaboration.
