Perhaps you are interested in some development
help or consultation related to adding PayPal functionality to your web site. You
probably want to know if I can do the work and how much it will cost.
Well, maybe I can. Let me tell you a bit about myself to help you decide. I have
been a programmer for well over 30 years. During the last 20, I have been involved
with eCommerce web sites selling DVDs, CDs, games, etc, using PayPal as one of the
For development, I have concentrated on Microsoft web technologies.
I do not program PHP/Apache web sites.
For PayPal-specific development, I have programmed PayPal Website Payments Standard
as well as Pro. I have programmed Express Checkout,
Direct Payment and Instant Payment Notification (IPN).
So what next? You are probably looking at various other individuals from the PayPal
certification directory to try and figure out who to contact. It is important to
make some calls and send some emails so you can get a comfort level and the proper
fit for successful implementation of your requirements. If you feel that I may be
of use based on the info above and the comments my clients have written in the Testimonials

Thanks for taking the time to consider me as the solution for your requirements.

What my clients have to say...
I have been very pleased with the quality of the work Gary has done on my webpage.
He is a skilled technician, who pays meticulous attention to detail, and is readily
available when problems arise. My particular webpage was designed some years ago
by a webmaster who built it largely "from scratch," and as such, the underlying
technical set-up is somewhat unusual, and in places unique. That makes it a challenge
for new webmasters to come on board and implement changes and updates to the basic
website architecture. On several different projects, involving a range of skills
(including implementing PayPal as a payment option), Gary has handled this challenge
skillfully and well.
When running a website with an e-commerce component, one is naturally concerned
about the potential risk involved in providing access to sensitive information,
such as credit card processing and PayPal passwords. My experience with Gary is
that he is extremely honest and conscientious in handling this sensitive data.
In sum, Gary is a true professional -- a conscientious, skillful, honest and accessible
webpage developer and technician. I highly recommend him and the excellent quality
of his work.
I am new to web development and I am just completing my first website. I needed
to integrate PayPal's IPN into my site. I worked on it for at least two weeks trying
to get it to work and had no progress. I contacted Gary, He quickly uploaded an
IPN page to my website and went beyond his original quote in helping me get set
up with the right web host to get my site finalized.
I would highly recommend Gary. He responded quickly to my questions and went beyond
the scope of work that he was supposed to do for me.
Before I met Gary Davis , I worked with two other developers who promised more than
they delivered. Gary not only created what I described and needed for my business,
but delivered a unique software application that exceeded my expectations.
The software Gary created for my company is unique in the insurance and financial
services industry. Within 72 hours after Gary finished the application I began generating
revenue. My website, www.insurancehelpcenters.net,
which uses the software Gary created, has been publicized in the top insurance trade
In addition, when Gary quoted me a price based on the amount of time he thought
it would take to create the application, he kept to the price, even though it took
him many more hours to create and finish the application. Gary Davis is knowledgeable,
talented, and a true professional. I highly recommend him.
We chose Gary from others on the PayPal Developer's Network because he answered
emails promptly, provided clear expectations as to his expertise, timetable and
costs. He kept his word on all.
The project was completed on time, as expected and on budget. In our project, he
integrated our shopping cart with Payflow Pro, proposed ideas to better the transition
and made recommendations for future improvements.
Gary is professional and reliable. We expect to contract him for future developments
and recommend his work.

I was looking for somebody to help me set up PayPal check-out on our website. I
contacted several programmers but when I talked to Gary I knew he was perfect for
the job. He was knowledgeable, understanding and a true professional. The ease of
communication and how simple he made the whole process go made me more than happy.
It never took long for him to reply to my emails about problems I was having with
the site. He cleaned up the site and got rid of a lot of the bugs it had.
I contact Gary with any problems we encounter with the site and he always helps
me to correct them.
I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for help with any aspect of website
development and programing.
To whom it may concern...
My name is Isaac Benzur. I create photographic murals.
Two years ago when I decided to use a customized credit card processor on my web
site. I searched on Paypal's web site for a list of developers referenced by Paypal.
I found Gary on that list, and since, I have been working with him on numerous
occasions. Gary has proven to be proficient in his craft, accessible by both email
and telephone, willing to help beyond the 9 to 5 ordinary hours of operation, offers
reasonable pricing, and lacks the overdeveloped ego/vanity which is often appears
to be the trade mark of the standard geek.
In addition his work is accompanied with good descriptions so as to enable the client
to adjust and maintain it without much difficulty. I recommend him without reservations.

Recently I wanted to upgrade my horse racing handicapping subsciption service website
that I had just purchased by integrating PayPal Website Payments Standard which
enabled me to accept online payments from customers with -- or without -- PayPal
accounts. We chose Mr. Davis over other developers because of his quick response
and very reasonably priced quote.
From the very beginning I let Gary know that I was not very computer literate and
he assured me it would not be a problem. Not only did Gary complete the project
on schedule and budget, he also showed patience and true professionalism as he walked
me through all aspects of using the PayPal setup. I highly recommend him.
[Gary Davis: Willie's project was very challenging since his original programmer
was no longer available nor was the website's "code-behind" source code. This required
some reverse-engineering with "Reflector" to rebuild the missing C# source files.]
