I have seen some example scripts in ASP and Java and they open a socket to "https://www.paypal.com" which is what is described in the paypal manual. All PHP demo scripts seem to open a socket to just "www.paypal.com" and I was wondering if there was any reason for this.

PayPal supports either but encourages https. We decided on a case-by-case basis what to chow in the sample code. For PHP, we showed http because https requires cURL which is not a standard part of the PHP distribution.
