    When customers are using PayPal express checkout, they are receiving this back from PayPal (PROBLEM: We're sorry. PayPal has unexpectedly returned a blank address. In order to complete your purchase, please provide your address by clicking the "Sign Up" button below to create an account in our store.

    No

    If a visitor is not an existing customer, a Zen Cart account is created for them. Would you like make it a permanent account and send them an email containing their login information?

    3. Payflow-US = Payflow Pro Gateway only

    PayPal

    Use InContext Checkout?
    PayPal now offers a newer friendlier InContext (in-page) checkout mode (Requires that you enter your MerchantID in the Merchant ID Setting above). Or you can use the older checkout style which offers Pay Without Account by default but with a full-page-redirect.

    InContext

    Sandbox: For developers and testing

    live


    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    There have been a lot of changes in PayPal files since 1.5.6.

    It's probably best to upgrade.

    Larry,

    Unfortunately, 1.5.6 is no longer supported and it may be very difficult to even find someone with a test site to try and help.

    I fear your only option is upgrade. You might just set up a test site with nothing but demo products and PayPal. Shouldn't take over an hour to find out whether or not PayPal will work for you. If you use cPanel, you can find a tutorial at https://myzencarthost.com/index.php?...th-cPanel.html
