WP-Ecommerce Paypal integration

  • How the heck do you get the paypal gateway to work? I need a step by step breakdown.

    I already have a paypal account, and I’ve told the gateway what it is..what else is there? i get this error when I click the submit button on my checkout…

    “Return to Merchant
    Unable to process payment. Please contact the merchant as the shipping address provided by the merchant is invalid, and the merchant has requested that your order must be shipped to that address.”

  • found the fuggin answer myself.

    in /includes/modules/payment/paypal_ipn.php

    edit out this

    // $parameters[‘address_override’] = ‘1’;

    so search for “address_override” and edit out the bit of code above!

    grudum, just FYI, THANKS for finding the fuggin answer. I happened upon this same problem just now and you saved my rear.

    I just started encountering this issue. Everything has been working fine for months. I’m running WP 2.2.1 / WP E-Commerce 3.5.1 using PayPal. I cannot find the file mentioned in the above solution. Any assistance is appreciated.

    i’m having the same problem. i’ve exhausted my limited expertise and am stuck. i have searched for the file and the specific code from the previous post and cannot find either. help!!

    I found the answer here.

    Go to merchants/paypal_multiple.php
    Find this line:
    $data[‘address_override’] = ‘1’;
    (should be line #46)
    and delete it or comment it out.

    Voila! All better.

    ok i followed all those instructions and it works fine, but what about the digital downloads? No where in the process did I receive a link to download the file that I purchased ?!@?




    I, too, would like to know the answer to the question about download links.

    How do you get it to a mode in which you can test “buying”?

    Oh, and just to have a trinity of questions, has anyone figured out how to have an item’s link actually send you to another URL? The plugin author says it’s possible (such as a link to a checkout page through Amazon or eBay).

    Sorry for all the questions! 🙂




    Sorry, can’t help with questions 1 and 3, but in terms of a testing environment, check out PayPal Developer Central at https://developer.paypal.com/

    anyone else figure out the resolution to links to digital products …. paypal works fine …. charges the customer … i get payed … customer receives a receipt and nothing else … no link to download product ….mystified

    As with “mastaken”, I would love a solution for this. His question is my exact same question:

    paypal works fine …. charges the customer … i get payed … customer receives a receipt and nothing else … no link to download product

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    One answer: use eshop. I banged my head on this one for days and eshop will get you your confirmation email from paypal.
