Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » How to set up Paypal to work with Woocommerce?

  • I’ve already tried hard to set up Paypal on Woocommerce without success.

    I wonder what is the actual steps used to set up paypal on woocommerce?

    My problems are:
    1) I tested it with my sandbox but, after payment, it doesn’t redirect back from paypal to my website. (I’ve already had business Paypal account and the redirect url on Paypal is already set)

    2) The order status after check out is still ‘pending'(unpaid).
    It doesn’t automatically change the status after check out.
    I’ve no idea how to make it work?

    3) What the difference between ‘PayPal Email’ and ‘Receiver Email’ in payment gateway setting?

    4) Do I have to do anything to make IPN work?

    5) No notification email sent to shop owner…

    NOTE: On my status page -> wp_remote_post() was successful – PayPal IPN is working.

    Thanks in advance for any helps!

    They should refund some money back to WP from their benefit

    That is simply not possible as WordPress does not accept financial contributions of this kind as a matter of principle. That said, many theme and plugin developers – including WooThemes – do support the ongoing development in other, non-monetary ways. That is why they are listed in http://wordpress.org/themes/commercial/ which says:

    What they all have in common is people behind them who support open source, WordPress, and its GPL license.

    They should refund some money back to WP from their benefit I know that is not possible, it was just to illustrate the normal game. But you are right when you are saying that some of them are supporting open source, I would like just to have more supporter and less business men.
    By the way thank you to give me the link to find WP commercial themes. It was my intention to evaluate and to test them.

    I also have an issue with woocommerce paypal configuration.

    I am used to with paypal with lots of other CMS and plugins but facing some problem with wocommerce.
    According to woocommercce documentation http://docs.woothemes.com/document/paypal-standard/#section-3 their IPN URL is like http://example.com/?wc-api=WC_Gateway_Paypal

    I replaced example.com with my site address. The problem is paypal is not accepting it. It is generating a notice

    “You must enter a properly formatted URL into the Notification URL field in order to activate Instant Payment Notification.”

    I know it is not properly formatted url as it contains “?”.

    Is there a method to make it properly formatted, Any hook or any thing which will make it properly formatted.

    Or do i need use URL rewrite for it what i am thinking to do next.

    Thanks

    roopeshsuyal — not sure if you’re still having issues but be aware of www and non-www.

    I also have an issue with WooCommerce.

    I recently added products to my site for a test run and I purchased one of the products. The site is for a band so the item was $0.99. The order was successful and I was able to download the item, but the $0.99 did not go into my PayPal account.

    Is this normal? Does it take a certain amount of time for WooCommerce to transfer money to PayPal, or do I have it set-up wrong?

    @lopezmr22, did you get your WooCommerce working? Did you use a credit card or other paypal account to purchase your item?

    Yes, I did.

    As it turned out, I had the sandbox feature on which allows a user to purchase items in there shop without the exchange of money to make sure everything is looking good.

    I had the same problem and here’s how I fixed it:

    I set up my IPN –
    1. Paypal
    2. Profile
    3. Seller Settings
    4. Update IPN Preferences
    5. According to WooCommerce you have to use this URL with your website in the example area, for the IPN: http://example.com/?wc-api=WC_Gateway_Paypal
    6. I turned off sandbox settings in the WooCommerce Payment Settings under PayPal.

    Worked like a charm. hope this helps!

    Thanks, I fixed this a couple months back. My fix was as simple as turning off sandbox.

    I am having trouble with Paypal too. I think I have tried all the above and still get this error.

    wp_remote_post() failed. PayPal IPN won’t work with your server. Contact your hosting provider. Error: SSL read: error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0), errno 0

    My hosting service said the error was not on there side.

    Not sure if I should be posting here but it is ‘paypal button integration’ related. I have not got to the stage of checking everything yet, and this may seem like a bimbo question, but I cannot see where I actually put the pay pal ‘add to cart’ button code so it integrates with my PP Business Acct. Do I just add to the ‘Checkout-Pay’ page or in custom-woocommerce.php? I am using Virtue theme and not that experienced with html.
    Thanks in advance

    Those of you still having trouble with getting PayPal working well in WooCommerce may want to take a look at PayPal for WooCommerce, a plugin I just launched.

    I’m a certified PayPal developer and an official PayPal partner. I’ve been integrating their stuff for years, and I just wasn’t happy with the available options to get PayPal running on WooCommerce, so I built this and launched it as a stand-alone plugin.

    It currently works with Express Checkout and Payments Pro, but I will be adding Recurring Billing, Adaptive Payments, Invoicing, and more in the coming months.

    To bugaonz: Please how did made it to automatically redirect back to your website?
    Thanks fot help

    I’m stuck. I can’t get Paypal set up on WooCommerce. I have a business account. I go to WooCommerce- checkout- paypal- settings- and then it asks for email, etc and my PayPAl Identity Token. I called PayPal and they say they don’t genereate such a thing. What do I need to do?
