    Hi all,

    I am appreciating this plugin I’m testing on a little theather company website.

    First of all I did not find documentation, but only this forum.

    So I put here my question.

    Question #1

    I don’t understand how to set PayPal.

    Have I to put PayPal button externally?

    Question #2

    Once I create a template for the room of my theather I need to use it form many shows. How to do this?

    Hey

    Question #1
    It seems that PayPal has made some changes. I need to update the PayPal button field info text in settings. But if you log into your PayPal business account and click the gear icon next to the Log Out and then seller tools tab. There you should see PayPal buttons link. Create a Buy Now button. (it seems that you can not leave the product name and price empty anymore so just add some). Once you have created a button you should see the generated code (look for hosted_button_id value). That is your button ID.


    Question #2
    Once you have created a registration you can copy it in Home->More->Copy

    Let me know if it helped

    Thanks for your reply.

    I could duplicate the scheme, thank you.


    I found the paypal page for the button.

    I am working in sandbox but the button does not take the amount from the seat reservation.

    It takes the amount set in Paypal

    hhmm…strange. Working fine here. Lets try to find out why it happens.
    1. Did you add the price to the seat in map editor?
    2. Did you specify the correct PayPal pay now button id in SeatReg settings?
    3. In booking status page when you click the auto generated PayPal link it redirects to PayPal and displays not the seat price?

    1. Yes, added.
    2. Both the sandbox than the live one
    3. it give me the price I had to set in PayPal as the button price

    Do you know how to use browser developer tools?
    If you inspect the HTML (form element) that generates the PayPal link in booking status page it shows some info. It displays business (your PayPal business email), hosted_button_id (paypal button id), currency, amount. Is the amount correct? Or can you share booking status page?

    This is the sandbox code Paypal button generates for me, and it is the same I have in my html.

    Here I can’t see any email address (business id), but the hosted_button_id value is ok (I changed it).

    <form action="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" /> <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="(BUTTONCODE)" /> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="EUR" /> <input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/it_IT/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" title="PayPal, il metodo semplice e sicuro per pagare online" alt="Acquista ora" /> </form>

    The test page is here.

    The link you provided is 404 Page not found.
    HTML code is missing lot of info. Don’t think its generated by SeatReg plugin.

    Okay I see now and I think I know what the problem is. The PayPal button you added to the bottom of the registration is wrong. You should not add any buttons manually. The plugin will do it automatically for the booking status page (the page people can access after booking was created). By default the booking status page link is sent to client email. In your site I did some testing but did not receive any emails (maybe your site email service is not working?). In SeatReg settings you have some options to control email (like should we verify email before booking is made).

    So, I don’t have to add the code of the PayPal button.

    You need to add only button id to settings under PayPal payments. You also need to add PayPal business email

    I received email.

    Okay, now it works.
    It would be nice to have some documentation so to avoid annoying you.

    The plugin has some very nice features: let’s do it!

    Yeah currently I don’t have any documentations. But its totally okay to ask questions (does not annoy me). I will mark this as resolved.

    I will open other topic for other little issues.
