Paypal Help please
I'm completley new to Zencart and in the process of setting up payments, one being Paypay but I have no clue what this means:
1. Sign up for your PayPal account - click here.
2. In your PayPal account, under "Profile",
set your Instant Payment Notification Preferences URL to:
(If another valid URL is already entered, you may leave it alone.)
Be sure that the Checkbox to enable IPN is checked!
in Website Payments Preferences set your Automatic Return URL to:
... and click "install" above to enable PayPal Standard support... and "edit" to tell Zen Cart your PayPal settings.
PDT Token (Payment Data Transfer)
Enter your PDT Token value here in order to activate transactions immediately after processing (if they pass validation).
Any help would be great, sorry to sound so dumb lol
Re: Paypal Help please
You should rather use PayPal EXPRESS - not PayPal Standard. (Standard is the one that uses IPN).
In your PayPal account (go log into paypal), you will see a little link in the light grey menu bar called Profile.
Hover over that link and select My Selling Preferences.
Then, see where it says:
API access . . . . . Configure how my website communicates with PayPal. . . . UPDATE
Click that UPDATE link
Next screen you will see TWO grey boxes. You need to act on the RIGHT-HAND one:
Option 2 - Request API credentials to create your own API username and password.
Click: Request API credentials
Next screen you will again see two grey boxes, this time with RADIO BUTTONS. You need to choose the FIRST OPTION (Left-hand box)
Request API signature
if your shopping cart or solution provider
has asked for an API username, password,
and signature, or if you're developing a custom shopping cart.
Click the Yellow "AGREE AND SUBMIT" button.
Then, the next screen will give you THREE IMPORTANT CODES:
Credential API Signature
API Username xxxxxx.xxxxxx_api1.xxxxxx.com
API Password QVYME9GC6TYE67TA
Request Date 10 Jun 2012 19:29:38 BST
WRITE DOWN these codes ACCURATELY and EXACTLY !!! (NO ERRORS !!!)
CLICK DONE BUTTON
Then, in Zencart Admin MODULES >>> PAYMENT...
Install PayPal Express. you may need to first REMOVE PayPal Standard.
You will see input fields where the THREE CODES are inserted. (Also, make sure you put your PRIMARY PayPal email into the appropriate field.
If your products require complex shipping, then it is sometimes better to DISABLE the PayPal Express button from appearing on the shopping cart and login pages:
Express Checkout Shortcut Button: Set to OFF.
And that's it...

Re: Paypal Help please
except that doesn't seem to work because it complains about cURL proxy, which is no longer supported in Zen Cart, but still appears to be part of the Paypal mdoule. I cannot figure out how to get Paypal working with express or pro because it complains about this cURL thing.

there are no CURL proxy settings under Admin->Configuration->My Store
Re: Paypal Help please
And that's because you're using an unofficial installation of Zen Cart which has changed the defaults.
Your previous post about this in another thread has already been answered. It would be better to continue in your existing discussion, instead of splattering the issue all over the forum.
