[resolved] Can I change the PayPal page to Japanese one? (3 posts)

    Hi, I have just installed Easyfileshop into my site.
    I got the "Buy now" button successfully on my page. Now I have a question.
    When I clicked the button, I was redirected to PayPal's English page. There isn't JCB credit card in the available cards.

    Most of my customer will be Japanese and lacking JCB seems to be inconvenient. According to PayPal's "Website Payments Standard Integration Guide", there may be some way to specify Japan (JP as country code) for customers' first page with modifying HTML variable "lc" on PayPal FORM.

    Can someone please let me know how to do it?

    the button sends you directly to https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr. My experience from germany is, that I am redirected to a german page.

    Try this:
    - Make sure, that you use a japanese browser version. Your browser sends a language string with every http-request. If your browser tells paypal, you like to see english pages, paypal will send you to an english page.
    - Delete all your cookies and close all your browser windows.Now start a new browser session.

    Regards Felix

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu. I am not sure what lang code it sends to paypal because my Firefox is 'nightly build version' and it gets updated almost everyday.

    By the way I think I found the solution. I have read "PP_WebsitePaymentsStandard_IntegrationGuide.pdf" (Japanese version) and on the page 120, the pdf shows how to.

    I added one line onto easyfileshop/main.php
    echo ‘<input type=”hidden” name=”lc” value=”JP” />’;

    This way, my sister successfully bought my first eBook on my site.

    Thanks for the awesome plugin. Believe me, I will make donation once my site gets earning.

    Many thanks,
