    I thought this was resolved but its not..

    I have placed a paypal buy now button on my site:-

    http://carrotsandclaret.com/other-animals/

    when I click on the button its goes to a log in page for paypal (even if Im logged in). Should I be setting up a page in paypal? I really dont know if it works. I set up a sandbox paypal thing and the same thing happened when I clicked on the button.

    Please could somebody tell me if the button is working...

    I replied to your question on your previous thread. I clicked on the link and it takes me to the login page where I can login and make the payment if I want to.

    I set up a sandbox paypal thing and the same thing happened when I clicked on the button.

    What specific problem do you find?

    My problem is it doesnt link to my book in anyway once on the paypal site. Its just goes to log in! Once logged in (in either my account or the sandbox thing) it doesnt say you are buying the book or you have just bought the book or anything like it..

    I think you need to get the link from paypal and insert it in your site so that it works. Go to paypal and check the various button options in your account and try again.

    I have done that Krishna...

    When I click on the paypal button on my site, see page http://carrotsandclaret.com/other-animals/
    I am redirected to a page saying

    Error Detected

    Error Message
    We were unable to decrypt the certificate id.

    We were unable to decrypt the certificate id.

    at https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

    why is this?

    You may try these:
    1. Login to your paypal account and use the HELP button (just next to logout button) to find out why the above problem happens.
    2. You may try any of the plugins that suits your requirements from:

    We were unable to decrypt the certificate id.

    The above error shows that either the paypal certificate id is wrong, or paypal cannot decrypt it. It otherwise means, it is a a problem for which you have to seek solution with paypal.

    Good Luck!
