I'd like to possibly start using MyBitcoin's merchant tools to accept bitcoin (I don't have a store already, I'm mostly just playing around with this stuff). But, before I do that, I'd like to get some more information on how to use it. Mainly what I'm looking for is:

- A guide that explains step by step how to use it (assuming previous programming knowledge, of course), and list stuff like anything people tend to do wrong and the like. It seems pretty intuitive to set up, but I'd like more information on using it before I get into it.

- Some way that I can spoof purchases for myself (after changing a setting or something?), so that I can test it on my local computer without needing to move money around for testing purposes.

I'd set up and run a dedicated bitcoin client for this, because it would be much more interesting to use, but if I made something I wanted to share, I'd have to get a dedicated computer.

Thanks for any help.

I just set it up for prestashop, it's not too bad, but the problem was just a series of server configuration issues that made my receipt handling script unreachable.  I'd say that's the big thing to worry about.  As for spoofing transactions if you can catch a valid post from mybitcoin and then post it from a commandline I think that should work.  Honestly though it might be easier to just have a few bitcents around and send them to yourself.  Surely you can get 5 bitcents from bitcoinfaucet or something?

Thanks for the reply. My big concern is with being able to test on my own computer, and less so having to move money around itself. Do you have more information on how I could catch a valid post from MyBitcoin?

Actually, just downloaded the shopping cart interface stuff, and I'm pretty sure that's what I want to be using, and it looks like there should be enough there to figure it out.

Another question, I understand that transactions time out if they're not paid in 24 hours, will the SCI tell my callback script when that happens, or do I need to deal with it myself?

That's a good point, I hadn't thought about that either.  I assumed people would click "pay with bitcoin" and then carry out the transaction immediately.  I don't think the script gets called back if it times out, at least I assumed it didn't.

Thanks, I decided that it would be a good idea either way in case of bugs or something that cause pending transactions to not actually be bought (never get to mybitcoin). It'd still be nice to get something official, though.
