  • Resolved nikkoboy



    I would like to report that EDD v2.11 is not compatible with Aelia Currency Switcher. All my sites running EDD v2.11 have validated all connection statuses (see below) but show that “PayPal is not currently active. Enable PayPal in the general gateway settings to”

    API: Your PayPal account is successfully connected in live mode.
     Payment Status: Ready to accept payments.
     Webhook: Webhook successfully configured for the following events:
    PayPal is not currently active. Enable PayPal in the general gateway settings to start using it.

    When I deactivate Aelia Currency Switcher, it works.

    Is that something you can address in a future update? I think I am not the only one using Aelia Currency Switcher with EDD, and it would be great to be able to use EDD v2.11

    Hey @nikkoboy @daigo75

    Thanks for being on top of it. I believe users just need to allow the gateway in the Currency Switcher settings page before it can be used on the front-end.

    Hey @misulicus it worked! Thank you so much for stepping in and recommending this edit. When updating to the new PayPal via EDD, the payment getaway “PayPal Standard” in Aelia currency switcher disappeared. I simply needed to reselect “PayPal” as a payment getaways in Aelia Currency Switcher: /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=download&page=edd_aelia_currencyswitcher
    I’m all set now! Thanks @daigo75 and @misulicus !

    @nikkoboy thanks for the confirmation. Just for information, the reason why the payment gateway “disappeared” is that the new PayPal method has a different ID from the original PayPal Standard option. Due to that, the new method must be explicitly enabled, for the appropriate currencies, in the plugin settings, just like any other new payment method.

    @daigo75 thanks for the clarification, that makes sense. I ran into a similar issue a while ago with another plugin that had modified the “class:” ID of one of its parameters between two updates.
    I reenabled PayPal as a payment method in Aelia Currency Converter’s settings, and it works now. Thanks for your help @daigo75 and @misulicus
