Here is how I got Paypal Payments Standard working

Recommended Posts

FOLLOWING IS HOW I CONFIGURED THE MODULE IN MY ADMIN AREA.

 

Enable PayPal Website Payments Standard

True

 

E-Mail Address

whatever@whatever.com WHERE YOU WANT PAYPAL TO SEND YOU EMAIL

 

Payment Zone

--none--

 

Set Preparing Order Status

Preparing [PayPal Standard]

 

Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status

default

 

Gateway Server

Live If you testing this will be paypal sandbox.....

 

Transaction Method

Sale

 

Page Style

default

 

Debug E-Mail Address

I used the same email address as above

 

Sort order of display.

1

 

Enable Encrypted Web Payments

True

 

Your Private Key

http://www.yourwebsite.com/folder/prvkey.pem I made a folder for all the various keys

 

Your Public Certificate

http://www.yourwebsite.com/folder/pubcert.pem Basically the same path as above

 

PayPals Public Certificate

http://yourwebsite.com/folder/paypal_cert_pem.txt Again basically the same as above

 

Your PayPal Public Certificate ID

This you get from paypal if you have an account and once you upload the appropriate keys paste that id number here.

 

Working Directory

/tmp

 

OpenSSL Location

/usr/bin/openssl

 

 

Many of us get stuck getting the keys... I know I did. The ones my hosting service generated were in the wrong format for paypal. So I spent a great deal of time trying to figure how to get the keys, and doing many google searches. I encourage you to do the same. There places to get the keys if you are willing to look.

 

I found it helpful to go to the paypal sandbox help and download the following pdf guides. Don't remember the exact url but spend time looking. If I can find them you can also.

 

PP_Sandbox_UserGuide.pdf

PP_WebsitePaymentsStandard_IntegrationGuide.pdf

 

For me the most difficult part was configuring the paypal module. The paths to the various files. As for installing the paypal module that part was a piece of cake. The instructions were clear and concise and easy to follow.

 

Oh yes... Read the sandbox instructions... You will feel like a blond soon enough - yea big red truck. Once I understood how the sandbox worked I realized I had most of my configurations correct all along. READ, READ, READ...

You don't need this setup with Paypal Payments Standard module, as this option is used for PayPal Express Checkout contribution


Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

My paypal does not have all those options. Did you use an add on?

These all options can also go with Paypal standard.

Its needed in case You want to accept encrypted payment.

 

There is a setting in Paypal profile that can be set to allow encrypted payment.

This is useful in case you do not wanr a manual change in the Paypal submission form By a hacker.

 

 

But with Paypal IPN in place the hacker tricks will fail so in most case You can skip using the certificate use for encryption.

Has anyone used the modules supplied by paypal?

https://www.paypal.com/en_US/html/Solutions...oscommerce.html

 

I am having trouble. I installed paypal_us_with_pwa. The express checkout buttons dont work. ec_process.php gives a HTTP 500 internal server errror.

 

That says it's for Pro, not standard.

 

My problem is paypal is not notifying the store that it was purchased so I have nothing logged.
