    I run a business that entails:

    -People subscribing via Paypal
    -Keeping updated list of current & past subscribers in Excel
    -Copying/pasting subscribers to a label sheet in Word
    -Printing labels from the Word document

    I'm looking to speed up the process up and reduce user interaction. I'm thinking I need to use some sort of DB software to keep this list. Bonus points if it can integrate with Paypal.

    Any ideas??

    FileMakerPro I believe is the "Access" of Apple, so why not give it a shot? I believe all new machines come with a 30 day trial of it already installed (my G5 did).

    I'm not sure about the integration with PayPal, but does PayPal have export options like .csv that most DB programs can read?

    FileMaker Pro is the more advanced database program for Mac. If you're looking for something very simple, they have a lighter version called Bento. Check them out
