Can different applications use the one PayPal IPN account

Can I use the same PayPal account for different PayPal applications.

Yes you can. The way you do it is to pass the url of the IPN script in the purchase button using the notify_url field.  PHP-eSeller, PHP-SecureArea and PHP-KeyCodes are all able to operate on the same PayPal account because they all send the IPN confirm url within the button.  This means that if you an application that uses your IPN PayPal account, you can still use applications on your site. 

In fact, applications create the and post the data to PayPal dynamically.  The relevant information is extracted from the database and, collected together and then posted to PayPal.  This method means that you can control the data centrally using the admin panel.

Extracting data from myPHPAdmin

A question I am often asked is how can I create better reports from the data that is in the mySQL database for transactions processed by PHPeSeller or by PHPSecureArea.  Both of these have sales history displays but you may wish to process the data in another application such as MS Excel or MS Access.

One approach is to extract the data from mySQL using your web server control panel.  Login into the control panel of your server and find the section that deals with mySQL.  You should have a link to myPHPAdmin or a similar database tool.

Navigate to the correct database in myPHPAdmin.  Navigate to the table that you want to export and at the top of the page you should see an EXPORT tab.  Click on this.  You will need to select a particular format for the export. This is normally CSV for Excel or CSV.  CSV stands for Comma Separted Values and is a very common method of transfering data to and from different application.  That should then allow you to download the file which can then be opened in your required application.

Using other flash mp3 clip players in PHP-eSeller

PHP-eSeller comes with a number of flash mp3 preview buttons.  You can use other mp3 preview buttons if you want, but the integration does depend on how the other flash mp3 buttons are configured.

We have documented a number of mp3 buttons with the required code to enable them to be intergrated into the template system.
