Hi,
Is Paypal a working payment solution without the problems of Google checkout and Protx with Maestro etc?

Hi

I’ve got Paypal Pro and Paypal Website Standard working on my site. I’ve now got Google Checkout working as well, but that was difficult getting the shipping configured. The Paypal Options were pretty simple, and with Paypal pro the customer checks out on your site (this is normally £20 pm but free until January I think).

How did you get Paypal Pro UK working on your site. If I try to use express checkout I just get a blank error.

There was an error connecting to the Paypal server:

It’s driving me nuts! smile

Cheers

By Paypal Standard working, does it update the order status once the payment has been successful??

I’ve been testing it with sandbox, but it fails to update status.

And now that I"ve switched to the real account.
I’ve realised it doesn’t recognise a payment has been canceled if the customer closes the paypal window. It still says pending.

If you get an error saying “Error connecting to Paypal server”, the most likely cause is not having Curl SSL and/or openssl module installed in PHP.

I use PayPal Standard and WorldPay. Both have their small issues but work fine as far as the customer is concerned.

Same here, doesn’t update nor create invoices.

Anybody know what version equals the osc Payap IPN module? I did not see one with similar variables.

I had this problem, only just sovled it.

Its all down to the server configuration.

If Openssl and curlssl are not enabled on the server, then you will not recieve responses from paypal, sagepayl etc.

I’d say Openssl and curlssl are not the issue on our end, but I’ll have it doublechecked. If this was causing this, I’ll update my post,.

Did anyone confirm if the openssl ond curlssl are the causes?

With PayPal payments I recieve the money in our PayPal account okay, and Magento moves to ‘Processing’ (and marks the order with the comment ‘Customer returned from PayPal site’), but there’s no way to then move it from ‘Processing’ to ‘Completed’ and the money never looks as ‘Paid’ in the Magento Order.

We’ve had to do some annoying workarounds with ‘order status’ extensions and the like, but when busy this all gets too confusing, messy and liable to cause screw ups!  downer

Is sage pay available as a free payment module? or did you build this in yourself?
