This script will send your e-products as email attachments to buyers upon successful PayPal Buy Now Button transaction. The script can check product information to reject e-thieves who try to get unauthorized "discounts" with bogus Buy Now buttons.
The script includes a built-in Checkout simulator that allows you to test the delivery feature without accessing PayPal.
The script can email a transaction log to the administrator on IPN handler error and/or on every run of IPN handler. It can also log transactions on the server side. No databases are used. Designed to reduce the amount of test time and maintenance efforts of e-product delivery.

e-Product Delivery Script: How to send plane text emails only
By default, e-Product Delivery Script will send buyers HTML emails as well as plane text emails.
If you want to force the script to send plane text emails only, you can remove the HTML section from product configuration files, or better disable it. You can disable HTML section by adding an underscore ( or any characters ) at the beginning of it like "_Html."
This upgrade is for advanced users who want to set up "virtual products" in e-Product Delivery Script.
So, what are "virtual products"?
Consider the following. You have 1000 products whose product configurations (e.g. "item_name", "amount", etc )
are exactly the same except, say, the file attachment.
The standard way to set up 1000 products is to create 1000 product folders and set up a product configuration file for each product.
As you can guess, it's really time comsuming and very hard to maintain. That's definitly the last thing you want to do.
Instead of creating 1000 product folders, you can set up one folder and modify the configurations on the fly.
That way, you can deliver all the products without setting up product folders for each of them.
Now, we need to take a look at the code where the script obtains product configurations.
Open web/ipn/sublcass/CProductInfo.inc.php in a text editor and
find the following php function:
function getProductInfo( $item_number, &$pi )
if ( !parent::getProductInfo( $item_number, $pi ) )
//-- [BEGIN] Modify the contents of $pi (ProductInfo)
// Write your code here
//-- [END] Modify the contents of $pi (ProductInfo)
The getProductInfo function is called when the script needs to get
the configurations of a product specified by $item_number, which is a product ID in PayPal terminology.
The function will pack the product configurations (e.g. "item_name", "amount", etc ) into the $pi array and
returns true if successful, or false otherwise.
The default implementation is that it calls parent::getProductInfo,
which loads config.txt into $pi.
parent::getProductInfo works only on products that have physical product folders on the web site.
To return configurations for virtual products, which don't have any physical product folders,
we need to modify a few lines of code there.
Before we proceed, let's make sure the specification of the modification.
The only product-001 has a physical product folder and it's config.txt is properly set up. There are no physcial folders for other products.
All the attachments for the products are stored in the "C:/MyAttachments/" folder. The filename of an attachment is the item_number followed by ".zip" For example, the attachment for "product-999" is "product-999.zip."
Similarly, you can replace other items in config.txt with anything you want.
Here is the list of items you can read and write:
Lastly, I want to point out that getProductInfo is the best place to modify
if you want to load the product configurations from other sources like a database.
If you want to load all the product configurations from the database instead of the product folders,
you can get rid of parent::getProductInfo because it's for loading
configurations from physical product folders.
