October 09, 2014 @ 09:25:51

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted the second part of their series about using the CoinBase API through PHP. In this new tutorial they use the API connection made in the first part via the Coinbase SDK.

In part 1, we covered basic installation and usage of Coinbase's Bitcoin PHP API and the accompanying SDK. In this second and final part, we'll be building our sample application.

He briefly shows how to send and receive bitcoins before diving into the application. His simple application includes a basic welcome page, a payment page, thanks page and a cancel page (in case of errors). Complete code for the HTML, CSS, and PHP (API calls) is included in the post. He shows how to create the button to start the payment process and add it to the page.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Bitcoin and PHP with Coinbase's API - Basic Usage
October 07, 2014 @ 10:41:31

On the SitePoint PHP blog there's a recent post showing you how to combine PHP and the Coinbase API to add the ability to accept bitcoins as payment in your application. This is part one in a series of posts about making the connection and integrating it into the application.

Have you ever thought about selling your services in exchange for Bitcoins? It's not so strange - today, many big players are actually doing it. From OkCupid to KhanAcademy, even WordPress is accepting Bitcoin. Also, some countries are thinking about it as a currency. Today, we will see how to accept Bitcoin payments on your website/application in an easy way, with the Coinbase API (and its SDK).

He briefly explains what kind of services the Coinbase API provides and talks about some of the different integration methods they offer. While they do offer a "button" you can add to the site, this tutorial focuses on the PHP integration using their SDK. They help you get it installed and show how to use the Coinbase site to set up authentication and authorization handling. He helps you get an instance of the Coinbase object ready for use and shows how to use it to interact with your account. The SDK also allows you to create the same button as the Coinbase site does, just in a more programatic way.

NetTuts.com:
Adding Bitcoin Payment Processing to Your Website
August 19, 2013 @ 12:38:53

On NetTuts.com there's a new tutorial that shows you how to integrate an up and coming payment method into your site's flow - Bitcoin. The tutorial uses a combination of Javascript and a PHP backend and BIPS as the payment processor.

Bitcoin has definitely started to become more mainstream, and with its global reach and minimal fees, it is a payment method worth considering. In this article, we will take a look at what Bitcoin is, as well as how to start accepting them in your applications. [...] I'm not going to get into the specifics, but essentially each time a transfer of currency takes place, the money is signed with the two parties keys and then hashed, and these transactions are appended to the global log. This allows coins to be publicly traced back, and to see if the money really belongs to someone or not.

He starts off explaining what the whole bitcoin system is based on and some of the common advantages and disadvantages around it. He then gets into the actual application, creating a simple structure using the Slim microframework and a bit of HTML to make a simple payment site. The BIPS processor is used to handle the payment and the Mandrill service to send the confirmation emails. Curl requests are used to call the services, so you'll need it installed as a PHP extension to make their examples work.
