    I have a client that wants to offer a service through his website. He will allow access to video files once someone makes a payment through paypal. That is the overall gist of what is going on. This is the process.

    People can go to the site and use a "login type procedure", but basically just a password that will allow them to access information.

    The click on the video that they want to see, and are directed to paypal to send payment. Once payment has been sent they will immediately get a password that will allow them access to the information. Once a password has been used it can not be used again. So the system needs to be able to generate random passwords on a continuous basis.

    Does this make sense. We need to be able to get this as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Are there any ready made resources out there to do this sort of thing? Or if you could direct me as to how to get started, I'd appreciate it.

    I have used www.payloadz.com for a similar type thing. I used it to sell a downloadable text document. I did not sell that many, but enough to know it worked flawlessly. It integrates with paypal very well. Don't know if they do video or not.

    I don't really want them to be able to download the content. I would like for them to be able to watch it in the the site. Because when they pay it will only allow them to view the item once. If they want to view it again, they have to pay again.

    at least that is the idea for now.
