    I have been trying to configure a paypal buy now button on my website

    a one stage I was given this message ‘You have successfully saved your preferences. Please use the following identity token when setting up Payment Data Transfer on your website’. and a number.

    How do I set up payment data transfer on my webiste?

    also does this button seem to be working okay..?

    I have spent so much time trying to test it with paypals sandbox and it hasnt happened!

  • I gave up using paypal sandbox a long time ago, it’s better to put your price to 0.01 and test it for real, you’ll get to test the full flow this way. your paypal seems to be setup ok, do you ask for the address.
    here is some info regarding the paypal setup

    what they are referring to is if you want information back from the transaction so that you can display it to your customer (his transaction ID, maybe some message that says when he can expect to receive his shipment).

    Thanks Nathalie… do you know the actual place in admin where to add the PDT token number?

    you would have to set this up in wordpress if you were using a shopping cart or a membership system but since you only have a paypal button all you need is to make sure that you setup the return url (when you create the button in paypal you need to check the option Take customers to this URL when they finish checkout and enter the url where you want customers to be sent.


    Ive done that so I should be all set. Thanks Nathalie
