Hi,

What's the best way to catch transaction information for automated handling of purchases on a website. For example, the instawallet site, is it open source?

Bitcoin will fail (unfortunately)

Look at my previous posts for explanation

Just wait for Bitcoin v2

You could use blockexplorer.com to track the transactions. The client shows how many confirmations the transactions have received; you could make use of that.

The listtransactions command will do it, or listreceivedbyaddress.  Most sites use JSON RPC to communicate with a bitcoind daemon, either running on the webserver or elsewhere.

You can play with it a bit on the command line to see how it all works.  Normally, you use getnewaddress to create a new address, then setaccount to associate the address with an account (just a name), then "listtransactions" to see if it has arrived yet.

I will look into this soon too and would love to see or else develop a WHMCS plugin that will support payments and invoices via Bitcoins. It will probably be a bit more tricky than a standard PayPal transaction/invoice but should be possible.

Yeah I guess it requires some modified Bitcoin client.

No, it works just fine with the stock client.  You may need to create or edit a bitcoin.conf file to tell the software to listen for API requests.

The stock client is the one you can download from here.
