paypal module iphone development

Hi all,

I want to develop a module to use the paypal mobile payments iphone library in Titanium applications for the iphone.
The method to get the paybal UIButton requires you to reference the UIViewController of your module. It is unclear to me how to access this controller.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


** ps : I actually solved this, see my reply further on.

  • Im sure your app will be rejected if you build something with PayPal in your app.

    This will happen due to Apple's new App Store Review Guidelines

    Apps utilizing a system other than the In App Purchase API (IAP)
     to purchase content, functionality, or services in an app will
     be rejected

    • Actually it has been approved by Apple and I know at least one application that uses it, I'm sure there are a lot more out there. Paypal released at static library especially for Iphone ( & android ). The procedure is however you have to let Paypal approve your application too :D

    • Okay without workarounds this should work (via InApp Purchase) :-)

  • I now used a trick from another post : I've created a UIViewController, added the paypal button etc and called this controller from my TiView with

    myUIViewController *myController =[[myUIViewController alloc] init];

    [[TiApp app] showModalController:myController animated:TRUE];

    All that is left is to implement the delegate methods of the paypal library and deal with the results in javascript.

    Did you take your chances at writing this? I am trying to add payments to my application and I would love to have the PayPal library to make payments.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    • Hey Filip,
      Did you finish the paypal integration yet? Was it approved by apple? Any help for others trying to create similar integration?
