Paypal Sandbox Returning to Wrong Page


Recommended Posts



I have been using OSC for about 6 weeks now and am virtually ready to launch my store. Fantastic shopping cart with excellent support. This is my first post as most of my questions have been answered in previous strings so thanks to everyone who has contributed.


Anyway, when i use PayPal sandbox, instead of returning me to the checkout success page, it returns me to the account login page. If i then login again the items are still in my cart but the order status in the admin section confirms that payment has been taken.


I have turned of SSL which worked fine and i was redirected to the order confirmation page and everything was completed as it should be. But obvioulsy i do not want to run without SSL.


I have been playing with this for 2 days now and stuck so any help would be greatly received.

for some reason when your customer returns.

The session id that was associated when customer was directed to paypal to one when paypal directed it back to your site got lost.


So there was no mapping of session id this made Your cart feel that this is a new customer and hence were sent to login.
