View Full Version : Personalized E-books

Hey...I haven't been here in a while so I am deciding to throw this question out there without sifting through the furums as I'm not sure where to even start.

I have a database with a lot of exercise information...and I would like to sell personalized training programs based on information submitted in a form. I'll have the user submit a form with his/her info, then charge for the resulting d-base-generated PDF. I'm not sure how to run the e-commerce stuff through PayPal and then automatically return to the site to get the PDF for download...or even e-mail it to the customer. the whole point here is to never have to touch the site. All transactions will be taken care of dynamically with minimal support...of course customer support is a factor.

Also, the dynamic creation of a PDF is eluding me...any hints on that would be more than appreciated. Thanks to anyone who can throw in their two cents...

Google is your friend - this (http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/PHP/Use-PHP-to-Create-Dynamic-pdf-Files/) was no. 2 for 'pdf create php' :)

Also, here in the UK, we just had a TV show about some guys who were setting up a website to do something very similar (www.theleanteam.co.uk), plus see here (http://www.channel4.com/4money/realdeal/makemeamillion/leanteam.html) for info from the TV show.
