Express Checkout Credentials Not Set Up Correctly


Recommended Posts

Hello, world!


I'm setting up a new site with osCommerce. I went into PayPal and got the credentials, put them into the PayPal payment module, but when I checkout, nothing happens: it just redirects back to the shopping cart page with ?error_message= appended to the URL. When I test the credentials in the admin, it says this:



The PayPal Express Checkout credentials are not set up correctly for live production use.

array(0) {



What's the issue? I'm sure I put in the credentials correctly. What mistake might I have made? Is there something in PayPal I haven't set? My credentials look like this:


API Username: user_api1.example.com




What's really confusing is that the error message doesn't give me any information. Version info according to the module:



API Version:


Thanks for your help
