Anyone have an idea where PayPal Express Checkout option has gone on 1.4.0.1? There only seems to be one for the “Payments Pro” version under Payment Methods.  However, I don’t have Payments Pro version of Paypal.

Any ideas please?

It looks like it is a change in PayPal’s system.  From what I understand on their website, PayPal Express Checkout is only available through using PayPal Pro Edition.

Actually just called, and the original version is still available too.  Magento must not be supporting the free version of this anymore, must want you to use their improved paypal standard instead.

is this related to the error that I am getting after the final review step: “This payment cannot be processed using your PayPal account at this time.”?

Could be, only you would know.  Were you using Paypal Express prior to 1.4? If so it doesn’t appear to be supported by Magento anymore.  They’ve supposedly made improvements to Paypal Standard, so I’d implement that if you need a free Paypal method.

Yeah, it is working on 1.3.2.4 for me, but not 1.4.0.1 - and I have a paypal pro account as well.  During my tests, I am seeing is that the order goes through on the store in the payment is processed by paypal, but the customer sees “This payment cannot be processed using your PayPal account at this time.”

Does anyone have Paypal Express working with Magento 1.4.0.1?

Sorry I can’t be of more help, we have not done any order testing on 1.4 yet, only having it installed at a staging site.

I have paypal express working on my staging site now.  I have it working with a USD Paypal account and a CAD Paypal Pro account.

this is what i did for now (not recommended for a live site!)

Comment out the code that redirects back to paypal after the express checkout is complete:
app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Controller/Express/Abstract.php

public function placeOrderAction()
{
    
try {
        
        
....
        
//        if ($url = $this->_checkout->getRedirectUrl()) {
//            $this->getResponse()->setRedirect($url);
//            return;
//        }
        
        
...
    
}
}

Seems like the response object from paypal is returning this on the final placeOrder step.

[SUCCESSPAGEREDIRECTREQUESTED] => true

This means that the store should redirect back to paypal to finalize the order, but from my tests, it doesn’t need to be there.

Anyways, I’ll continue to poke around in the code and try to figure out a more permanent solution.

Couldn’t you do an override in the local folder instead of manipulating the code?

Yeah I could do a local override of that file.  I am still looking through my paypal and magento settings to see if I missed something since it seems like no one else has complained of a similar problem to what I have encountered.

Maybe your code for your paypal button needs to be updated to a different url?

I can confirm that Paypal Express stopped working after upgrading to 1.4.0.1.

customers emailed about “PayPal geteway rejected request. The totals of the cart item amounts do not match order amounts (#10413: Transaction refused because of an invalid argument. See additional error messages for details).”

i didnt get that. i see either a blank page (if I choose paypal after proceed to checkout) or a 404 if I choose paypal from /checkout/cart
