I am having difficulty setting up my PayPal – Stageshow interface correctly. Let me start by saying that we can accept donations with no problem on our site (buffalosilverband.org) through Paypal. When I purchase a ticket through Stage Show, I get switched as usual to PayPal and ask for a credit card transaction. If I had selected “Block Non-Encrypted Website” in Web preferences, I get the following error message from PayPal: “The seller accepts encrypted website payments only. You cannot pay the seller through un-encrypted buttons. Please contact your seller for more details” , and the transaction is not completed.
If on the other hand, I had allowed for non-encrypted payments, the payment appears to be proceeding normally. I am sent to PayPal to complete the payment information, but upon switching back to my site after processing, I get a scary warning that my information is going to be going over a non-encrypted connection (but for some reason is not doing it at the moment-though it has done this).
I have “Auto Return” set “On” in Website Preferences, with the return URL listed as https://buffalosilverband.org/payment-successful/ . The actual URL that is displayed on transfer is not encrypted: http://buffalosilverband.org/payment-successful/?amt=10.00&cc=USD&cm=48&st=Completed&tx=xxxxxx . PayPal account optional is “On”. “Block Non-encrypted Website is “Off”. The notification URL for the IPN is as you have specified in your docs, starting with htps://www.sivervband.org……
I did this in Firefox 501.10
I sent the following support request to PayPal:
“In my website preferences, I have set “Auto Return” and specify an encrypted site (https://buffalosilverband.org/payment-successful/ ) for the completed transaction to return to after payment processing. Paypal appears to ignore the https:// prefix and returns to, for example, http://buffalosilverband.org/payment-successful/?amt=10.00&cc=USD&cm=47&st=Completed&tx=xxxxxxxx . I have received warning messages from my browser, although I am not getting them at the moment. I don’t want my customers to ever see a warning message when making their payment.”
I received this from their support team:
Thank you for contacting Merchant Technical Services.
From my checking, I find that you have set the return URL on your account correctly. But, you have set the return and cancel URL when you created the button on your PayPal account which does not include the HTTPS.
Please edit the button code and re-paste the code on your website. This issue should be resolved. Please test this and let me know.
I hope I was able to address your inquiry to your satisfaction. If you have further questions relating to this inquiry or any other issue, please do not hesitate to let me know. Otherwise, please mark this ticket as solved.
Thank you for choosing PayPal and have a nice day.
But Stage Show does the interface with PayPal, not me, so how do fix this?
