PayPal Live Balance
Flash version: 7, ActionScript 2.0.
This component extracts and displays the live balance and currency from your PayPal account without requiring your actual paypal login.
You can display the balance by placing the simple swf file in your normal html page, it will communicate with a PHP file in background.
The amount updates without refreshing the html page, it plays a sound when amount changes. You can click the component area to enable/disable sound. Default sound on/off can be set in PHP file, component also remembers if user enabled or disabled the sound and uses these settings next time the component is displayed.
This component can be used on your browser homepage if you want to keep an eye on your paypal balance.
Another good use would be to place it on sites where donations are raised, visitors would be able to see the current amount live.
In order to load the balance from your account, you have to set an API_USERNAME and API_PASSWORD in the file balance.php , these user names and passwords are provided by PayPal and are DIFFERENT than your actual paypal login information. This info can be found under "my account" in paypal, more details in the readme.txt file.
The path to the sound is also editable in the php file so you don't have to edit the flash in order to change the sound file.
In balance.php you can also set the update interval, in this sample the balance updates around every 3 seconds. If balance changes, then the short sound is played.
Flash source file (balance.fla) is included.
SWF is only 3KB.
