help with paypal payment pro


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


This problem here has plagued me for almost a month and half now. I get an error message "There has been an error processing your credit card. please try again."


during checkout when I click on "confirm order". I found the following code which is a part of the payment pro code




function before_process() {

global $HTTP_POST_VARS, $order;


$order->info['cc_type'] = $HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_type'];

$order->info['cc_number'] = substr($HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_number'], 0, 4) . str_repeat('X', (strlen($HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_number']) - 8)) . substr($HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_number'], -4);

$order->info['cc_owner'] = $HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_firstname']. ' ' .$HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_lastname'];

$order->info['cc_expires'] = $HTTP_POST_VARS['paypal_cc_expires_year'];


require_once ('Services/PayPal.php');

require_once ('Services/PayPal/Profile/Handler/Array.php');

require_once ('Services/PayPal/Profile/API.php');



$certpass = '';



$subject = '';



$handler =& ProfileHandler_Array::getInstance(array(

'username' => $apiusername,

'certificateFile' => $certfile,

'subject' => $subject,

'environment' => $environment));


$profile =& APIProfile::getInstance($apiusername, $handler);



$caller =& Services_PayPal::getCallerServices($profile);




// var_dump($response);

tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, 'error_message=' . urlencode(MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_DP_TEXT_PROCESS_ERROR), 'SSL', true, false));



//MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_DP_TEXT_PROCESS_ERROR = "There has been an error processing your credit card. please try again."


So, according to the above code, it is telling me something about my 'apiusername', 'apipassword', 'certificate'. I have looked at those and used the exact password and apiusername.


I don't know what else I can think of that's causing the error. Please help
