hi guys,

i had the same error when trying to pay via paypal (error="unable to create payment method” via a javascript pop-up message).

A bit of background on my set up:
1. i have a custom theme that’s based on the magento blank theme - i essentially copied over the blank theme wholesale into another directory and started changing things from there
2. i’m running magento 1.4..0.1 (not upgraded - vanilla)
3. the following extensions installed (as you can see it’s a vanilla installation)
Package Name Installed Actions Summary
Interface_Frontend_Default_Blank 1.3.3 (stable) This is a sample skeleton theme for Magento designers.
Lib_Google_Checkout 1.4.0.0 (stable) Google Checkout Library
Lib_Js_Calendar 1.51.0 (stable) Javascript Calendar for Magento
Lib_Js_Mage 1.4.0.1 (stable) Javascript Libraries for Magento
Lib_Js_Prototype 1.6.0.3.0 (stable) Prototype and Scriptaculous Javascript Libraries for Magento
Lib_PEAR 1.4.0.0 (stable) PEAR Library
Lib_Varien 1.4.0.0 (stable) Varien Library
Lib_ZF 1.9.6.0 (stable) Zend Framework
Lib_ZF_Locale 1.9.6.0 (stable) Zend Framework Locale
Mage_Core_Modules 1.4.0.1 (stable) Collection of Magento Core Modules

WHAT WORKED FOR ME:
after reading a couple of posts that pointed out this was a theme-related issue, and that centinel layout and templates were potentially involved, i deleted the following file (please back it up in case you need to put it back first)
/app/design/frontend/default/[your theme name]/layout/centinel.xml
after this i was able to go through to the paypal site

hope this helps someone - i’ve found this forum to be a lifesaver since i’ve started working with magento
