The e-commerce.

Paypal Express characters strangers


Recommended Posts

Hi, we have Oscommerce 2.3 and Paypal Express, and all work fine, but sudently the name and adress of the order have characters strangers.

In the customer section everything is shown well, in the Shipping address section is where the problem is. The other payment modules work well. I would appreciate any help, we have been with this issue for a long time and it is very annoying.

Please note that 2.3 is end of life and no longer actively supported. Please consider upgrading to Phoenix which uses the latest version of paypal express.

Hi peterpil19m, we have made many modifications in Oscommerce 2.3 and we do not dare to update. They are just the strange characters of Paypal, I could pay up to € 100 if someone can help me.
