How to configure PayPal in VirtueMart 2
« on: April 18, 2012, 02:22:36 am »
Configuring PayPal in VirtueMart 2 is easy!

1. In VM2 administration menu go to 'Shop' - 'Payment Methods'
2. Select "New" from the top menu.
3. Give it a name, i.e. "PayPal", set the checkbox to 'Published' = "Yes", select "VM-Payment, PayPal" in the dropdown list and click on 'Save'.
4. Now go to the second tab and configure your PayPal payment method. For testing you need to enter at least a PayPal payment (test-customer) email and a test-merchant (Sandbox) email.
5. Save your PayPal payment method configuration.

...that's the easy part.
(There also is some information about this in our Wiki at: http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki/VM2_Shop_Menu - Scroll down to "VM Payment PayPal - Payment Information Tab"

6. The more difficult part now is configuring your account at PayPal as described here in PayPal's sandbox (testing) tutorial:

An example which demonstrates the current (free) type of PayPal integration into VM2 is on this PayPal page:

If there are no plugins, you probably forgot to install them. If they are installed, check if the plugins are published.
Concerning installing the plugins see here:  http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki/Installation_of_VirtueMart_2_with_provided_packages

Any news/plans for integration on the new Paypal Payments Advanced? It is the new option between Payments Standard and Pro.

Is there a setting within paypal that will notify VM that the payment was processed and update the order accordingly?  I see that VM has settings for this, but my cart isn't updating order statuses when the paypal payment goes through...

I installed the aio component. The paypal plugin is there, but the config of the second tab will not save. I changed the settings in the database and these were shown correctly on the second tab, but the IPN's from Paypal are not being processed.

[edit]
I reinstalled and then 2nd tab in config is saved. Waiting to see if the IPN's will come in.

Hi,
Is ther a way to config as was possible  in VM 1.* so that Pay-Pal Charges the customer the currency they have selected on the website ?

i.e.  If I select USD as currency in front end as a customer, when i get to the checkout page & Pay-Pal it charges in GBP ( which is my store`s main currency )
Thanks

Why are there no instructions for the URL for the IPN? I can't get this PayPal payment method to work. Neither the customer nor the vendor are getting email confirmations and I am guessing it is because I didn't turn on the IPN which isn't in the instructions. But when I do turn it on, I don't know what URL to specify. Can anyone help?
