Spent the last few days trying to unsuccessfully integrate Payflow Link with the Magento backend.

-Called tech support, verified the partner, vendor, user, etc in triplicate
-Checked the settings on countless times for errors
-Disabled SSL a la success stories in this forum.

We’ve run several transactions, both live and test on the site and the farthest we’ve gotten is a “Pending Payment” on Magento and a big fat goose egg on the Paypal end. No record, nothing.

It’s clear we aren’t connecting to the merchant gateway as the integrated Paypal menu doesn’t show up during the Magento checkout process at all.

Anyone know how to fix this? Or a payment gateway with simple integration & a clean track record with Any and all input greatly appreciated.

I have a similar issue.

on Linux 2.6.18-408.el5.lve0.8.61.1 x86_64

Our online store is based in Australia. We would like to use Paypal Payflow Link as our only payment method. We have to select “United States” as the Merchant Country in the Payment Method Configuration page.

The issue is within the “Paypal Payflow Link (Includes Express Checkout)” payment method. In the configuration for this payment method, there are no fields to input the Vendor Id, Username or Password.

This results in the following error when trying to checkout
“Some required information is missing or incorrect. Please correct the fields below and try again.
? Error: Merchant Design Identification Error.”

The above error is known to be caused by incorrect credentials.

The following was tracked in the http headers when trying to checkout (using Google Chrome version 24.0.1312.57 m)

<form id="token_form" method="POST" action="">
<input type="hidden" name="SECURETOKEN" value="7Mg1G9iAKBkK9P3lg2nMMMQhx" />
<input type="hidden" name="SECURETOKENID" value="4cdfa96836d32b29d7bcde89ed4a7420" />
<input type="hidden" name="MODE" value="TEST" />
<script type="text/javascript">
