Topic: E-commerce Solutions

I'm working on a new project with refinerycms and I've just built an 'events' section. A site visitor can enter in some information and they get registered for an event. Only addition I need is the ability to accept a one time payment.

I'm fairly new to rails and have never built any kind of e-commerce solution. Just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of something that might fit my needs. This is a pro bono project so there's no budget and free solutions are better if possible.

Does paypal have an api or something I can use? Where would I find information like that.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Activemerchant (contains paypal helpers) and paypal express (since this is pro bono).
Instructions can be found here - … vemerchant

Thanks! One of the most confusing parts of the process was understanding what services were part of which packages in pay pal.

Thanks again,
