Chris,
Sorry to bother you again. I installed paypal as instructed. When I was testing the paypal and trying to protend to be a customer making a real payment, paypal does not go through, instead, giving me an error msg: "The link you have used to enter the PayPal system is invalid. Please review the link and try again.". I called paypal representative, the y told me that the link does not work properly. I don't even know where the paypal link was coded and how I should change it. Can you help me on this? My site is almost ready to open to public. I attached the paypal page showing me the error massage. Thanks.
Lily

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Everything else looks fine to me, I checked through all the button settings. I think it must be PayPal doesn't recognise that email.

Admin Zone > Setup > Configuration > eCommerce options

PayPal errors are very unhelpful unfortunately, I wish they'd give specific ones.
