A quite simple one here suggested by one of my users, the ability to send payments without having to send PM's to the sellers first, not sure about the security implications this may cause as it would entail having the users paypal email addy stored in the DB, but i think it would make life easier for many of my users

There is no way in HELL I want to be in charge of my users paypal information, or any other account / payment information. The only place I would accept that as tollerable would be if we implement a feature to allow users to automate payments to the auction site for posting their auctions, or if we implement a feature where the auction system gets paid a percentage of the final selling price automatically. Even at that point, I would only accept the payment information being encoded into the database deeply, and not accessible to anyone directly. Then, I would want some world renowned hacker association like the L0pht to verify that the encryption can not be easily cracked.

Any measures less than that will invite hackers by the dozen to try to hack our auction system and extract the payment information. Not to mention phishing scams and email scams.

I don't necessarily think that this is a BAD idea, but we would need to tread lightly while implementing it to ensure that EVERY security precaution has been taken. Smile
