Notes when implementing PayPal Payments Pro
This is an old revision of the document!
It is possible to get very confused and frustrated when setting up PayPal Payments Pro in Magento so I thought that I would give some bullet points that could have saved me a lot of time.
- The correct, as of 01/10/09, url for PayPal setup is: https://www.paypal.com/au/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_express-checkout&commit;=&token;=
- For U.S. paypal accounts, the URL is https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_express-checkout&token=
- When testing your cart use a real credit card and not a test VISA number that you found online (you can always refund your card later)
- If you receive the error “Gateway Decline” it probably means that you have the above mentioned url wrong
- If you receive the error “Processor Decline” it probably means that you’ve used a bad credit card number
