  • Hi everybody.

    I’m trying to set up the paypal module.
    And unfortunately it doesn’t work. 🙁

    Few step to understand where I was wrong:

    module filename: paypal.php
    module path: /settlement/

    module changes: I added my paypal sign in email and my ID merchant safe code.

    What I missed to do? Or where I was wrong?

    Thank you

    You must set a module path in full directory-path.
    Make the field empty and try to update it. Then default full path is displayed.
    Please arrange it.


    First of all, thank you for your kind answer.
    But I think I didn’t understand.

    I tried these two solutions:


    And in both case, the “checkout” was successfully without the activation of the module. I know that it’s a my stupid mistake, but I’m not able to understand it :-((

    Thank you

    In the case of the URL, I think that you cannot choose PayPal by the process of the payment method. I also cannot understand it.


    Hello, Horkin.

    You might have the same problem I had.

    Go to system setting and put


    to the place for settlement module path.

    Then go to general setting, for Payment module

    put paypal.php

    I just come back from my holidays and today i tried again.
    I don’t know how… but I solved it 🙂 Maybe last time i made some misterious mistake that i avoid this time.
    Or maybe i just needed vacation 🙂
    Thank you to everybody that answered to this topic.

    Now I have another big trouble. The paypal payment page appears in ¥, japanese Yen. How can I change this default setting?

    Thank you.


    I’m a Japanese, but working on English ver.
    So, when I have a trouble, you have same trouble, too.

    Go to

    and in 279’s line.

    It is


    Change that to


    It should work.

    Thank you for the answer, but maybe I was not able to explain my trouble correctly. I’m sorry. I already fixed that button 🙂

    The real trouble is not the image of the payment button, but the default currency of the paypal-page after clicking that button.

    After click “buy now” it correctly redirects to paypal page, but the sum to pay is in japanese yen! And I need euros 🙂

    Thank you again.


    Ok, I guess I solved it.

    In the same file (confirm.php) I changed “JP” and “JPY” with “EU” and “EUR”. I don’t know if I should do something else, but now it works.

    line 264 <input type=”hidden” name=”lc” value=”EU”>
    line 272 <input type=”hidden” name=”currency_code” value=”EUR”>

    Hope it could be helpful for someonelse.


    Oh. OK, whatever works.



    Hi there.

    I have tried my best but I still cannot make paypal module to work. My testing URL is:
    My settlement module path is: /home/mindbuil/public_html/transitmoda-5/wp-content/plugins/e-shop/settlement/

    I have already added paypal.php in general settings. Checkout is successful but the paypal module is not activated. I don’t know what am I doing wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Do you mean that Check out without the payment method works well, but only the paypal module does not work well?

    Anyway, it is not very safe to put your module under the plugins folder.
    Once you update the module, your module could disappear.

    Hi Hitotch,

    Yes, the checkout works well but the paypal module does not get activated. I don’t get to paypal website. When I click on Checkout button it just says “It has been sent successfully.” Can you please have a look at it? I can send you the user id password details of the website.

    Thanks for the tip. I tried placing the module in another folder but it also didn’t work.


    Please give me the following information at first in your email.

    Are you using the PayPal test account?
    -> I need to test with some testing account.
    -> If not, please setup your testing account at first. We can work with it.

    You can email me “” (same user name as here)

    Hi Hitotch,

    Thanks for your reply. I have setup a test account on the server and sent you an email with all the details.

    I look forward to your reply.


    Please read below.
    I found that “Type of payment” is not correct for Paypal in your system.

    (Ref. paypal_sample_en.php)
    [Procedure 3] Add a new payment method in “Welcart admin panel / a General Setting page”
    * A payment method name: A payment method name displayed by a shop.(essential)
    * explanation : The explanation of a payment method displayed by a shop.
    * Type of payment: Choose “the representation supplier settlement”.
    * Payment module: Fill it out with “paypal.php”.
    * Push the button ‘Add a new method for payment’.

    And double check you have “paypal.php” on your server in the correct folder.
