paypal-redirect-action

Hi,
i use in the form a radio button selection for payment methods.
For the use of Paypal I have used this FAQ:
http://www.chronoengine.com/faqs/2583-how-to-use-the-paypal-redirect-action.html
And looked at the DEMO form "demo-paypal-redirect".
My form is set up in the setup as in the attachment.
Why do I get no confirmation mail that the IPN works?

I come to the Paypalwebseite and I always the right product is displayed but always a wrong and different price.
Is the problem the trial function?
Zitat: "It should work fine now, but you should purchase the "PayPal plugin" from our subscriptions page in order to be able to use it for live transactions as the trial version randomises the amount."

Hi Fredolino,

Have you set up IPN on your PayPal account? And, are you sending the correct notify_url to PayPal?

You are correct that the trial version randomises the amounts.

Hi Bob :-)

hoppla, you're right. The IPN URL must also be integrated with the Paypal account. Of course I have not yet.
Thanks for the tip!

If I do not want to use the Paypal Trial version, then I can pay for with Paypal in the i also use the ReDirect URL + ReDirect User actions to pay with Paypal in the Event Switcher?

ReDirect URL = Action in: Utilities/Redirect?
ReDirect User = Action in: External Apps/Chrono Redirect?

For the correct forwarding to the seller's Paypal account login, do I need a URL from Paypal?

Best regards
Fred.

Hi Fred,

You can use the "Redirect" action as an alternative to the "PayPal redirect" and set all the parameters yourself, but you will not be able to use the "PayPal listener" action to process the incoming response from PayPal.

Hello,

Thank you for the info.
I have now in the Event Switcher in success a Redirect-Action with the content (see screen).
But I always come only to the general homepage of Paypal and not in the payment area.
Have I forgotten something?
Also with the Paypal button I am not in the payment area came.

Best regards
Fred.

Hi Fred,

You can test with the "PayPal redirect" and enable the debug mode, check the URL generated by it and compare it to the parameters you have provided in the normal redirect action, because if you don't land on the correct page in PayPal then something is missing.

additionally you have amount={item total} in the settings, i'm not sure if your field name is just like that or it there is no space it it ?

Best regards,
Max

Hi Fred,

So you can use the same parameters in the "Redirect" action settings OR keep on using the "Paypal redirect" but then you will need to have the paypal plugin subscription in order to send correct amounts to PayPal.

Max

Hi Max,

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

cmd=_xclick
business=service@xxxxxxxx.com
currency_code=EUR
item_name={item_name}
amount={item_total}
quantity={item_quantity}
invoice={invoice}
first_name={vorname}
last_name ={nachname}

Best regards,
Fred.

Hi Fred,

Please try to build this link and add it in the browser's address bar then press enter, does it send you to the correct page on the PayPal website ?

HI Fredolino,

See the help note under the Extra Params box

extra_param_name=form_data_key
extra_param_name="constant_value"

Hi,
I come with the data on the Paypal login page (screen).
However, I am not shown the correct sum.

My settings in the backend are currently the same as in the screen1.

Please, please read the Help

This is NOT what you have done.

Hi Fred,

Please download and install the new v6, it will install as a new extension, it has more options, your redirect parameters should then be like this:

				
cmd=_xclick
business=service @[at] xxxxxxx [dot] com
currency_code=EUR
item_name=my item name
amount=3
invoice=invoice
first_name=Fred
last_name=lino
adress_1=strasse
zip=33334
city=Munchen


Best regards,

Hi :-)


Can I adjust this?
I now have this redirect URL: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=service@xxxxx.com&currency_code=EUR

And these additional parameters:
invoice=invoice
first_name=vorname
last_name =nachname

And I get on the Paypalsite this view:
Here are now only the totals exchanged. In the Paypal profile I have already set the 21% tax for Spain to 0.

Fred.

Hi Fred,

This is v6 or still v5 ?

I don't know how PayPal calculates the total tax, maybe you can test by passing a fixed tax amount.

if you are still using v5 then please test v6 as its much easier to control the PayPal parameters in the new version.

Best regards,
Max
