    I am running a web business ( where we host joomla based sites for adoptive families. Is it possible to set something up where when someone returns to the site after paying on paypal, for the client to enter some information, and then have the site established automatically? I would like to have the ability to have a client sign up, pay, and start adding info to their website all in a matter of minutes.

    Any ideas as to how, or even if, this can be done?

    Yes it can be done I've seen a few sites that do something similar.

    Paypal has an API you can plug into to achieve this kind of thing, I believe it has a SOAP interface. You need a Premier / Business account to get access though.

    (Tyr2: Thanks for the link. )If paypal is the only way to do this, then I'll just have to learn more about APIs.

    However, I am rather hoping that I can find a way to do this via my account with Hostmonster (my web service).

    Any ideas?
