PayPal Standard - double login


Recommended Posts

Running Osc 2.3.4


Testing PP Standard with my sandbox. Location is Germany.


Right now I'm running in a double login for PayPal Standard.


UTF8 not working, redirection to checkout_process.php/checkout_success.php, meaning back to the shop, results in an error: could not verify transaction....


Can anybody confirm?


Update: sometimes the transaction works, sometimes not. UTF8 not working at all.


Is PayPal under construction? Are they changing things?

thank you for your reply.


I read through http://forums.oscomm...gain/?p=1703165 and this http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/topic/397899-mobile-devices-paypal-standard-buyer-being-returned-to-shopping-cart-after-purchase/


Now I'm totally confused.


Do I have to install this addon: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9184 Will everything work then? In this case I'd like to know, why in heaven does the module shipped in standard OsC 2.3.4 not work? Why is it integrated? What sense does it make to integrate a piece of software that does not work? Assuming, that the configuration has been done correctly.


Or should I follow the advice of Bob Terveuren who has the opinion, that PP should be kicked off?


I resume:


1.) I activated the OsC 2.3.4 PP express module. This module can't handle a different shipping adress from the payment adress. --> Not useful for me.

2.) I followed the advice of Gergely, and installed the PP standard module. I read and tried to follow all installation/configuration steps very carefully. For me, this module doesn't work either in a correct way.


All tested in the sandbox as the site is still not online.


If anyone is able to direct me step-by-step in the right way, I'll give it a try again. I would greatly appreciate that.


If no solution can be found, PayPal is a waste of time, at least for me.
