I am new to the api world and needs some help. I do have some php experience, I just haven’t used any API’s.
Currently, what I want to do is to be able to create a way for a user to select buy now on my web page and be taken directly to the guest checkout. I do not want them to log in, I do not want them to have the ability to continue shopping. That means I need to create the cookie that carries the products information to the magento cart or create the invoice directly through the api.
I am going to have several products on sales pages that are not associated with the store. These products need a simply 1 step checkout. I do not like the current method of 15 steps.
Is there any sample code or forms to help me get an understanding of what I need?
I read: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/doc/webservices-api/api/sales_order_invoice#sales_order_invoice.create but need something simpler.
