Hi all,

Is there an API available for receiving and/or sending bitcoin transactions on a website? PHP or otherwise?

Thanks!

There is an API: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/API_reference_(JSON-RPC)

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

You can use the api from blockchain, so you won't need to run the bitcoind server.

What are the advantages of that against running your bitcoind on your own server?

Like most things it's a trade off, you need to trust blockchain to not feed you bogus data and you need to have your use case covered by their API.
Oh, and like any service they sometimes have outages, but on the other hand maybe you'll have outages of your own bitcoind.

If you can avoid running the client locally I'd advise to use the blockchain API.

We will be using the "receive payments API" by blockchain.info (http://blockchain.info/api/api_receive) on our site, which simply forwards all transactions into our wallet.
