What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Pretty sure that questions like this one do not fit on Stack Overflow, as it's not related to programming whatsoever.

Do we have proper site for this in the network? Or should we just close it as general Off Topic?

@YannisRizos there are thousands of questions tagged PayPal so I doubt all of them are off topic - just those that are not related to programming. –  Shadow Wizard Jan 25 '12 at 9:12
    
Yes, I was commenting on the question you linked to. –  Yannis Jan 25 '12 at 9:15
    
It could be a programming question if he's not setting all the information he could. It could also be a Webmasters question. –  ChrisF Jan 25 '12 at 9:42
    
I've definitely struggled with many of the PayPal-related questions as to whether or not they are off-topic for SO. For those that have any inkling of programming in the question body, I tend to let be, but for those that don't mention code directly, I tend to mark as off-topic (usually directed to Webmasters). +1 for raising the issue. –  cdeszaq Jan 25 '12 at 14:21

This one seems to be on-topic if you ask me. It is an implementation question using an API, doesn't matter which API. It is answerable. –  Octavian Damiean Jan 26 '12 at 13:14

1 Answer 1

It's an API that a programmer is attempting to perform a specific function in. If we limited API discussion to non-commercial APIs only, or non-online APIs, we'd have precious few questions left.
