Media praise for PayPal Hacks

"PayPal, like Amazon and eBay, has become a utility for technological civilization. You can buy, sell, or contribute to a worthy cause. Safer and easier than using a credit card, PayPal is changing the way we transact. That's why PayPal Hacks is great. Not only is PayPal the most known and convenient way to deal with money on-line but there are some significant business processes that need to be thought through for brick and mortar retail. Not every hack will apply but many will inspire new ideas and bring some increased awareness. Using PayPal Hacks will let you take things at your pace and the bite-sized nuggets let you get started immediately. You will need some decent computer skills to get past the first few hacks, and unless you do business on IIS you'll need to rework the code examples. The good news is that once you get going you'll probably be glad you took the journey."

"Any who would understand this very popular ecommerce program....should have Paypal Hacks as part of their reference collection."
--Bookwatch, February 2005

"I marked a lot of pages in this book and if you do any kind of e-commerce -- or plan to -- you will want to get a copy of this book to guide you through the process of safely and securely possibly making money online."
--Robert Pritchett, MacCompanion, January 2005 (3:1)

"Though the subtitle trumpets that Paypal Hacks contains '100 Industrial Strength Tips & Tools,' there's far more than that packed in between the pages. While the content is solid, the conversational tone of the writing also makes the book more user-friendly than a straight technical manual. The writers have the right idea in that they have not merely emulated the content of PayPal's support pages, but instead delivered a good deal of useful information as it might be delivered by a technically savvy friend."
