Name

pagamigo - free software script to pay with PayPal

Synopsis

pagamigo [options] [--username username] [--password password]

Overview

Use an online shop and opt to pay with Paypal. You will be redirected to a URL like:

https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_express-checkout&token=EC-CAFEBABE123456789

Copy that URL to your clipboard. Then, from the command line run:

$ pagamigo redirect

Follow the directions on-screen prompting you to enter your PayPal credentials and to paste this URL.


By default, this connects to production. For the sandbox, use:

$ pagamigo --base https://www.sandbox.paypal.com

For peer-to-peer money transfer ("Send money"), instead use:

$ pagamigo send-money

Pagamigo, while interactive by default, is entirely configurable by arguments as well. For instance:

$ pagamigo send-money --to sunset@chs.eq --amount 10.00 --username scitwi@chs.earth --password hunter2 --debug

See the usage for details.

$ pagamigo --help
