Support » Plugin: MarketPress - WordPress eCommerce » Failed to load PDF document

  • I’m currently testing Marketpress to make sure everything runs correctly. I am only selling digital download media and only accepting paypal. I am running the latest version of WordPress and MarketPress Version
    My problem
    Whenever I set my price to free and order my product it downloads correctly. However, when I give it a price and order it via PayPal, it downloads correctly but will not open. For the PDF it said “Failed to load PDF document. For the zipfile I downloaded, the warning was: Windows cannot open the folder (name of folder)is invalid.
    Hope someone can aid me in this. Maybe a small matter I’m overlooking?
    Thank you

    Hey there darrellsan3000,

    How are you doing today?

    I’ve quickly tested this on my end using PayPal sendbox and everything worked properly. Could you please quickly test for conflicts to see if your theme or another plugin is causing this?

    To do that please try using default WordPress theme like Twenty Fifteen and deactivating all other plugins as displayed in the following flowchart to know which theme/plugin is conflicting if any.

    Best regards,

    Hi Mr. Radonic and thank you for your swift reply. The PDF in question is approximately 30 MB. I believe the problem is that my web host will not allow downloads beyond 7 or 8 MB. When I conducted tests with PDFs that were 5 to 7 MB they downloaded and opened fine. But anything in the neighborhood of 15 MB or larger would produce the error message.
    Maybe someone could give me some advice in this area if they’ve had similar experience. Thank you!

    Hey again,

    I see, if that’s the case maybe it would be the best to contact your hosting provider with this to double check if there are any limitations, if yes which one and how can you increase those. I believe this would be the fastest way to get this to work.

    Have a great weekend!
