Are you using this,

No, everything in Quality and Testing section relates to default Virtuemart feature and not 3rd party extensions.

Not sure if default Virtuemart PayPal Pro is the same as the one in your link, if the one in the link is better (it seems so) maybe VM team with permission of the developer can incorporated changes into the core.

Some bugs in PayPal API were fixed a couple of days ago; i will create a new BETA package by the end of the week, so we can test it again.

Thank you.

I just upgraded to 1.1.6 (official release) and have the exact same problem.

Has anyone found a solution for this yet?

I am sorry but we know there are still some issues left in PayPal API in VM 1.1.6. We're definitely going to have a look at them in the next weeks. I'll report any update on the dev/coding forum.

How much would it cost to speed this up?  I was planning on going live this weekend but I upgraded to 1.1.6 and now have this problem.  I don't really want to downgrade.

some bugs were fixed AND included in VirtueMart 1.1.6, which has been released a while ago. Unfortunately there are a few other bugs left, which i am working on in these days. Sorry for delay but i have little spare time, if anyone can contribute it would be great.

I'd also like to express my thanks re your efforts.

Also, I'm not really sure if I need the New Paypal API. All I want is my customer to choose Paypal then get redirected to the Paypal site to pay via CC or via their Paypal account. Should I just use the Legacy version?
I think I'll be using a standard merchant paypal account, not Paypal Pro.
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on December 21, 2010, 14:03:58 pm
@bobjenson:
yes, you may still use legacy PayPal, there was just some minor issues with coupons and taxes, but apart from that everything is fine.

Thanks, I'll use the Legacy one for now. By the way, upon testing the new API version, I'm keen on using that one, once the bugs are ironed out :)
Nice interface, sandbox easier to setup, nice logos on the checkout etc.

I'll try to find a bug report post on the new api and add my findings.

Cheers,
Bob.

VM 1.1.6

Any news on this? I'd like to use the API as legacy gives me problems:

http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=80537.msg265824#msg265824

And I couldn't get the b-planet patch to work. I really need some help here - the site is unusable (for my client) without PayPal. And - I can't have customers getting Purchase orders when they cancel the order or use the back button from the PayPal page..

I'm open to anything. Hacks, modules, patches, even pay stuff. I just need this to work...

Hi zanardi,

Thanks for the update. I just want to take a minute to thank you and the entire VM team for creating this outstanding product. I understand completely how much time, energy, and emotions go into work like this. I anxiously await the fixes, but in the mean time - Great Job. Thank You.

Post by: Zwilla on January 22, 2011, 03:06:40 am
I have the same problem. I fixed with http://www.vantagetechnic.com and then i put the checkout.index.php from the "Patch-VirtueMart-1.1.5-1.1.6.j15" in the origin folder.

Thats it. without any errors now. Why? I don´t know.

bye and thx

Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on January 22, 2011, 12:33:18 pm
That's interesting... Vantage Technic offers a PayPal Pro integration made with some help from Soeren (as stated on Vantage Technic site).
Soeren later includes PayPal Pro in VirtueMart itself and Vantage Technic stops developing the module (May 2010 is the last update).
How is it possible that the old module works and the new one does not? Seems like new bugs have been introduced afterwards.
Thank you for pointing this out, it may helps us tracking the issue. I suggest other people to use the same module as Zwilla and report any result.

Any news on the UK paypal pro support??
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: Zwilla on January 22, 2011, 13:25:21 pm
ok all seems ok, one other error i get is, when i list all orders:

Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in ...../administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_order.php on line 80
and same on line 94, 128, 180, 206

inside ps_order.php on line is this:

80:  if( !$authorize->capture_payment( &$d )) {return false;   }
94:  if( !$paymentObj->capture_payment( &$d )) {return false;   }
128: if( !$pfp->capture_payment( &$d )) {return false;          }
180: if( !$payment->void_authorization( &$d )) {return false;   }
206: if( !$payment->do_refund( &$d )) {$vmLogger->debug('failed to do refund');
   return false;}

I think that this problem comes from the variable "&$d" at this moment i don´t know
how we can fix this.

Other side, the store shows only this error´s but nothing looks wrong.

The file: "ps_order.php" use this two files:
payment/ps_authorize.php
payment/ps_authorize.cfg.php

Now i look inside this ones.

hmmm... i find this:

http://mrfoo.de/archiv/282-Warning-Call-time-pass-by-reference-has-been-deprecated.html

i try it later, there are 3 methods to eliminate the problem.

bye

Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: Zwilla on January 23, 2011, 15:24:46 pm
OK... I found the error:

replace inside: ps_order.php all       &d$

with                                    d$

thats it.

My skill in php is like zero. I don´t know what I do, but i found on several website´s that the use of "&" can bring an error and without not. For this I was replacing them an the error is away.

Bye an have an nice sunday

Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on January 23, 2011, 17:00:07 pm
@Zwilla:
not "d$" but "$d". Yes "pass-by-reference" means using &$d instead and it's deprecated, i.e. will be removed in future versions of PHP
But this IS NOT AN ERROR, just a warning, so everything should work fine. I will start from Vantage Technique module.

@Hutson:
i am sorry but i don't know the answer. I haven't yet released any fixed version of PayPal API payment, i just commented that the module used by Zwilla can be useful, but it's just a suggestion like "try and see if it works".
I cannot guarantee anything, i still have not enough knowledge of this payment module.

Of course i wasn't suggesting to use it on live sites, it would be great if someone can test it on non-production sites. I will post on this forum every time i fix something in PayPal API.

Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: sech on February 04, 2011, 09:01:10 am
Don't know if this helps in tracking down this problem but...

Also getting errors:
Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.
Error: Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.
Error: Failure in Processing the Payment (ps_paypal_api)
Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.

when PayPal API is the only payment method (and therefore the payment method selection is skipped in the checkout process).

The express checkout option, if enabled, works fine, but not a solution for me as I want to collect user's shipping info on my site.

If I also enable PayPal Legacy as a payment method, then the checkout process does not skip the payment selection step. Now I can select the PayPal API option, and it all works fine.

However, it also displays options for PayPal legacy, which works OK, but the PayPal site requires me to use (or register) a PayPal account, and does not give me an option to pay by credit card without a PayPal account in the way that the API version does.

Enabling PayPal Legacy as a second payment option also allows the user to select Credit Card as another payment method. I have no idea where this comes from - it's not the credit card option that is listed in the backend config - and if selected generates the same errors above.

As an interim measure until VM1.1.7 comes along I'd be happy to have that Credit Card payment method suppressed. That way I can at least name the payment methods "Credit Card via PayPal" (for the API), and "With PayPal account" (for legacy), or some such, and not have the user too confused.

I'm using Joomla 1.5.22, VM1.1.6, and a PayPal sandbox.
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on February 04, 2011, 09:51:27 am
@sech: i only have one warning, PayPal Legacy DOES NOT require for the customer to have a PayPal account. When the customer gets to PayPal page, he can login with his account OR he can click on "Continue" to pay with credit card.
About all the rest, i am working on PayPal API payment to make it more clear on functional, don't expect it in 1.1.7, though (1.1.7 will be out today or tomorrow to fix an urgent security issue).
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: sech on February 04, 2011, 10:30:51 am
Probably something to do with my PayPal setup. The legacy payment method takes me through to the live PayPal site, where the only options are to login to PayPal or create a new PayPal account. The API method is configured for the PayPal sandbox, which does offer an option to continue and pay with CC without a PP account.

Is there any obvious reason why the extra 'Credit Card' option appears if I select both API and Legacy? If I could eliminate this, I would have a satisfactory solution.
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on February 04, 2011, 14:13:55 pm
Ok, since this is not coding related, you should better ask this in the PayPal-related forum on this site (under Payment methods).
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: mcongosto2 on February 15, 2011, 18:30:18 pm
If I use New Paypal i get this:

Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.
Error: Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.
Error: Failure in Processing the Payment (ps_paypal_api)
Invalid Credit Card Number or Credit Card Verification Code.

And if i use t he old one I get this

500 - No valid database connection:

Using latest VM 1.1.7

So i cannot sell. I am 100% stuck. I cannot believe this, so frustrating. How come such basic features does not work out of the box??? is this the leading ecommerce application for Joomla??
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on February 15, 2011, 21:34:26 pm
The new PayPal payment method needs to be configured with some attention, you should better ask in PayPal dedicated forum on this site.

http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?board=74.0

But the error you report for PayPal Legacy "No valid database connection" is totally new, i never heard of it, so i think it is something completely unrelated. As far as i know, PayPal Legacy is quite stable since some time now, and has only some issue in 1.1.5 related to the use of COUPON with TAX.

1.1.7 is just a security release for a specific vulnerability, it includes a couple of other fixes but is not much different from 1.1.6.

How close are you to fixing the original issue? I've been holding off for a while hoping you might be done in time for my shop, but I may have to go with a different solution if the fix isn't imminent.

I know you're doing this in your off-time, Zanardi, so thanks in advance.
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: zanardi on February 17, 2011, 09:06:36 am
I am really sorry but i cannot promise any date. Not only i follow Virtuemart in my spare time, but there are also other VM bugs which i've been fixing lately. I'll do my best but even so it could still be weeks.

P.S. amongst all the people which are experiencing issues, isn't there anyone who can pick some code and give back some fixes? Virtuemart is a community software, after all, you should not just wait for a single developer to fix everything.
Title: Re: PayPal Pro - Checkout with Credit Card not working
Post by: 4lane on February 17, 2011, 22:15:55 pm
No worries, thanks for your help. For now I'm going to shut off the Credit Card payment option and just use paypal express. Another person has suggested some modifications to sidestep the Credit Card aspect until that is resolved. You can see those suggestions here: http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=77065.30

The issue is exactly the same. As soon as you choose confirm order you get:

Errore: Elaborazione Pagamento Fallita (ps_paypal_api) [translated: payment elaboration failed]

Is there some fix for this?
Btw, the options I set are the following:

Post by: yobokkie on June 25, 2011, 10:08:41 am
So is there any solution for this yet? I also have a customer breathing down my neck for something that was supposed to be working but isn't. The URL is Http://earthafricacurio.com and it keeps giving the tax error and failing, it's set to sand box mode so you can test it if you like. The OLD legacy mode isn't working properly either, it's listed as paypal underneath with the other methods.
Again I have no tax rates listed.

If i select any African or Asian Country it seems to work, haven't tested them all.
If I select America or Europe it returns the Tax error
IF I turn virtual tax on it says "Pay Paypal returend: " (nothing else)

I was encountering this error so I reinstalled everything, including wiping over my very carefully editing zone shipping mode which I'm going to have to restore once I fix this but this is a very urgent error, Is there anyone out there who could help?

If a administrator user name and password would help someone see what's happening I can provide.
