Paypal Standard - Transaction Type: Individual Items

Hi,

I am unable to take payments with PayPal if I set the transaction type to Individual Items.  It successfully takes you to the PayPal website and correctly shows the order, but once a user signs in, paypal gives a very generic error message.

“Sorry and error occurred after you clicked the last link”

I have tried this in SandBox mode and still the same, but with the extended error of:

“We are sorry, we are experiencing temporary difficulties. Please try again later. If this error occurred while making a payment, avoid duplicate payments by checking your Account Overview before resending a payment.

Message 3005”

If I change the Transaction Type to be Aggregate Order it goes through fine.  Anyone any idea what this could be?

Thanks
Tim Pearson

I have just got an email from paypal regarding this problem.  It is a problem that is known by Paypal and it only occurs if in the Paypal accounts -> Business Account you use your merchant id instead of the registered email address.  If you use your email address it works correctly.

Hope that helps anyone that is having this same problem.
