Can't retrieve live credentials to get started

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am having difficult getting PayPal up and going. When I choose 'Retrieve Live Credentials' in Admin it logs me in just fine at PayPal. However, instead of returning to Admin  with updated credentials, I am landing on a blank page at https://www.oscommerce.com/index.php simply displaying

{"rpcStatus":-110}

There is a long query string on this oscommerce.com URL with merchantId, merchantIdInPayPal, secret etc. and a few other variables. A query string seems like an insecure way to pass these variables! What do I know? I would just like to get PayPal up and going and I can't seem to figure out how to get the live credentials.

Hi John,

Which version are you using? The latest, Phoenix, has had updates to Paypal app which the old eCommerce might not have had.

Have you tried manually putting the credentials in?  There should be a menu for that.

Using Phoenix. Thanks. 

Will try again, though so far I have found the interface at PayPal where I am supposed to be able to navigate their developer tools and locate the credentials, basically, inscrutable.

Great, it's not just me then! I usually have to google "how do I find X in Paypal" whenever I need to something other than send money.

The trouble is PayPal just redesigned their interface (again) so the fine folks on Google will only tell me where I could have found the credentials last year.

I'll try again when the full spectrum CBD oil gets here tomorrow.
