Problem with PayPal API: Cart not going to PayPal


Recommended Posts

Hi, Newbie here.


I've just set up my first OSCommerce shop and we want to have PayPal as the only payment option. I have enabled the PayPal module and sure enough it goes to the PayPal site with the correct recipient listed at the top, however no cart contents make the transition to the PayPal 'invoice' and PayPal complains the price must be greater than 'zero' - I have also enabled the credit card module to check all works fine and it does. However when we launch we only want PayPal.


I have no other modules running or patches.


Please help a newb.


Many thanks,

I have worked out my problem, when configuring the PayPal module I set the currency as UKP and not GBP which it seems is PayPal speak for £ sterling. When I changed it to GBP PayPal worked a treat HOWEVER, every reference to prices on the site reverted to 0 which doesn't help me.


So given how longe I've spent setting this up with product items please help me with a workaround which doesn't mean re-writing the entire product set :'(
