Support » Plugin: Paid Memberships Pro » PayPal Standard and Express errors

  • Resolved rdillard


    I’m trying to set up PayPal on PMP, but I can’t get Standard or Express working.

    With PayPal Express, when I get to the Complete Payment button and click it, I’m taken back to the first registration page and get an “Express Checkout PayerID is missing” error. I’ve double-checked the API settings, and PHP session variables are supported and enabled.

    With PayPal Standard, I can complete a transaction, but the member does not get a confirmation email from PMP. If I check the Memberships > Email Settings Default WP notification email, I get the text email from WP with my user/pwd.

    The status change isn’t working in the Order list. It doesn’t matter what Status I change the order to, the person isn’t added to the Member list.

    I’m using PMP version 1.7.04 on WP version 3.5.2.

    Any ideas on how to make this work?

    Check that session variables are supported and enabled by your host.

    There are some updates to PayPal Standard support in the next version coming out soon (today/tomorrow hopefully).
