The e-commerce.

Paypal and security image failing


Recommended Posts



This is my first OSCommerce site setup. When testing with Paypal, both the module that ships with OSC and Paypal IPN 1.3 on the Live Paypal server, I've come across a problem on the Paypal confirmation page. When all details are entered and submitted, the page fails and return with the error message :


>Some required information is missing or incomplete. Please correct your entries and try again.


>Security Measure: Please type the characters you see into the field.


It seems to suggest the security graphic with random letters in is failing but these are definitely being typed in correctly.


The checkout process works ok if the buyer has a paypal account rather than use their credit card.


Has anyone else come across this or have any suggestions?
