Hello, Im setting up magento for a costumer in Australia, if my costumer opens an account with Paypal, can he use it with Magento?

Thanks!

Yep, PayPal Standard works fine out of the box.

“PayPal Website Payments Pro - Direct” seems to only be available to US merchants, as far as I can work out, anyway.

Hi

I extend this question with the following:
Since paypal website payment pro is not available to businesses in Australia and the standard version does not include Express Checkout, Australia based merchants have no choice but subscribe to Paypal Express Checkout separately to enjoy this service.

but what does it mean for integration on magento? If I subscribe to website Standard and Express Checkout, is there a way to trick the native configuration of Magento to show Paypal Express Checkout buttons, or is there no choice but developing a custom module to enable Express Checkout in these conditions?

Thanks for your answers!

Hi,
I have been battling with Paypal intergration for a few days now, today at last resolved.

I have changed from Standard with IPN to Express with API and the setup was OK.

I will put together a blow by blow soon in an effort to ease the frustration level.

I am happy to respond to sensible questions

Cheers

Ron

Hi Again,

I seem to have PayPal express working, however it seems I was mistaken as to its capabilities :(

With PayPal express customers need to sign in / register a PayPal account then make payments, i think thats true.

Is there a PayPal payment option available to Australian PayPal business account holders that will allow customers to enter their credit card numbers without signing in / registering a PayPal account? I’m sure i have experimented with this before, but not with magento.

Are there any similar payment gateway options that do?  I might have to go the whole hog and process credit cards with another payment gateway without users leaving my site, though this sounds like quite a can of worms to implement.

Cheers,
Paul.

Hi Porle,

I would recommend PayPal Website Payments Standard if you wish to allow your customers to pay via credit card without requiring them to sign in / sign up for a PayPal account.

Why o why can’t PayPal Australia offer Website payment pro.

How are people making sure transactions are getting recorded as conversions if most people wouldn’t click the “go to merchant” button after paying on paypal.

I’m using paypal express, I have the Australia extension installed so people can select states etc from a drop list.

I read that paypal doesn’t force people to sign up for an account with Express and I saw the settings I need to do to make it like this however it always asks them to sign up for an account!

Also it’s forcing people to enter in same detail again even though they did it on my site, the state, email and home telephone, any one know how I can prepopulate this?

It looks like it cannot pre select the state from dropdown list because paypal doesn’t support states outside of the US

https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content;_ID=developer/e_howto_api_soap_StateandProvinceCodes

I got it to pre populate the email field and telephone by editing this file

/app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Model/Api/Nvp.php

Find the function callSetExpressCheckout and you will see something like this

$nvpArr array_merge($nvpArr, array(
                
'ADDROVERRIDE'      => 1,
                
'SHIPTONAME'        => $a->getName(),
                
'SHIPTOSTREET'      => $a->getStreet(1),
                
'SHIPTOSTREET2'     => $a->getStreet(2),
                
'SHIPTOCITY'        => $a->getCity(),
                
'SHIPTOSTATE'       => $a->getRegionCode(),
                
'SHIPTOCOUNTRYCODE' => $a->getCountry(),
                
'SHIPTOZIP'         => $a->getPostcode(),
                
'SHIPTOPHONENUM'          => $a->getTelephone(),
                
'EMAIL'                =>$a->getEmail(),
                
            ));

I added ‘EMAIL’ =>$a->getEmail(), to the end

changed PHONENUM to SHIPTOPHONENUM

I don’t why this hasn’t been fixed, I’m using the latest magento, I thought this would have been a big issue for a lot of merchants using paypal?

Yeah Im having issues with Paypal Express also, Its gathering the data from my PayPal account fine, but the shipping costs are stuffed. Its not reading the state properly or something?

All the data seems to be sitting there fine though. But when u come back off paypal and go to select shipping method, it doesn’t show the right options.

Also has anyone got paypal standard to auto return??

PS magento big headache

Another update. Paypal was not returning the phone number to Magento so my customers had no phone number who paid through Express without going through Magento sign up.

Add this code to the file: app\code\core\Mage\Paypal\Model\Api\Nvp.php

find function: function callGetExpressCheckoutDetails()

at the bottom add:

//        $a->setTelephone(Mage::helper('paypal')->__('N/A'));
        
        $a->setTelephone($resArr['SHIPTOPHONENUM']);

You can see I commented out the old code and the next line is mine to grab the telephone number.

This is not tested but should work, I will find out soon I guess
