8. The PayPal Web Services API > Introduction: Hacks #87-100

Introduction: Hacks #87-100

PayPal’s Web Services application programming interface (API) is the means by which you can interface directly with the PayPal platform to build applications and web sites that leverage features on the PayPal web site. Essentially, this means that you can integrate your order-processing and customer-service systems with the payment information stored on the PayPal web site.

No longer are you bound by the patchwork services afforded by services like Instant Payment Notification (IPN) [Hack #65] and Payment Data Transfer (PDT) [Hack #85] . Instead, the API provides a more seamless link between your application and the PayPal engine, allowing you to write slick, robust order-processing applications to help grow your business.
