problem with Paypal Express Checkout 1.0 add on


Recommended Posts



I tried using the Paypal Express Checkout 1.0 add on you can see here:



On step 2 of the instructions I don't understand what I need to do. See below text in red:


2) remove "checkout with paypal" button from shopping cart page :


comment below code found in paypal_express.php in includes/modules/payment:


function checkout_initialization_method() {

global $language;


if (file_exists(DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express_' . basename($language) . '.gif')) {

$image = 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express_' . basename($language) . '.gif';

} else {

$image = 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express.gif';



$string = '<a href="' . tep_href_link('ext/modules/payment/paypal/express.php', '', 'SSL') . '"><img src="' . $image . '" border="0" alt="" title="' . tep_output_string_protected(MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_EXPRESS_TEXT_BUTTON) . '" /></a>';


return $string;



Where exactly do I go to remove "checkout with paypal" button from shopping cart page?


And what do they mean by "comment" below code?


I am a bit of a novice at this so if someone could give me simple step by step instructions on what to do, I'd really appreciate it.

If you are going to use paypal express, I suggest you use this one. In my opinion, paypal express should not be used, especially in older shops, since it has problems with some addons, like those that create coupons.
