Paypal Checkout error

Hi

Please go easy on me.

Just when I thought I cracked this I've hit a big problem. I've installed the paypal IPN contribution and here are the fields I've filled in:

 

PayPal IPN 

Enable PayPal IPN Module
True

Move tax to total amount
True

E-Mail Address
[email protected]

Transaction Currency
Only GBP

Payment Zone
--none--

Set Preparing Order Status
Preparing [PayPal IPN]

Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status
default

Gateway Server
Live

Transaction Type
Aggregate

Page Style


Debug E-Mail Address


Sort order of display.
0

Enable Encrypted Web Payments
False

Your Private Key


Your Public Certificate


PayPals Public Certificate


Your PayPal Public Certificate ID


Working Directory


OpenSSL Location
/usr/bin/openssl

 

The problem I'm getting is that everything runs very smoothly until the final payment at Paypal when I get the following error

 

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.

 

Now I'm definitely entering the correct characters so it must be something else.

 

I've managed to find some pretty vague explanations for this but nothing that makes much sense.

 

Can anyone help.

 

Thanks

Martin

Wow

I'm still going through various posts but it looks like I'm way off the mark at the minute! There seems to be a grey area. Do I need an SSL certificate or not for just Paypal IPN? If I don't need one then I won't bother, but then how do I go about setting up my site to work without the SSL?

Thanks

Hi

I've tried setting up as above and I still get this error:

 

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.

 

Can anyone help please? I've spent a day trying to figure this out.

Thanks again

Hi All

I'm getting somewhere so I'll share it just incase anyone else gets this problem.

I've forwarded the URL to this particular site from one ISP to the ISP hosting my oscommerce site using frames and apparently this is a no no!
