How to change "Return to Merchant" text on final button on paypal standard

Recommended Posts

I need to change the text on the last button that appears after someone finalizes their order - it is the return to merchant button.

I am using paypal website payments standard.

Their tech support says to look for business variables in my oscommerce code (wt?) and add cbt variables

Does anyone know how I can do this?

I want to change the text to Finalize Transaction because if people don't hit that button - their order confirmations don't get sent to them or to the store admin. I do have IPN set up so the backend of the store shows that a purchase was made and what they got.

 

any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Sorry for bumping- just can't believe no one is having same issue? Here is post I left with paypal developer forum:

 

I am using OsCommerce 2.2 and PayPal Standard which is already integrated. I have a paypal standard business account.

 

Since it is already integrated, we do not make buttons.

 

I need to change the Return To Merchant text because people are not wanting to go back to may store, so they are not clicking and although I am using IPN and the purchase is recorded in my store and database, both myself and the customer do not receive order confirmation emails.

 

I have seen the MANY posts about adding the cbt variable but since I did not create buttons, I do not know where to do this.

 

My particular Return to Merchant button does have my store name in it so I am assuming paypal is just pulling it from my account information?

 

I HAVE to find a way to change it. can anyone help?

Unfortunately if you have a Business account, PayPal inserts your business name. You cannot change the text:

If You set return URL t true and set a return value(not needed) as most of the Paypal module pass a value that will override the Paypal Profile setup.
