How to test PayPal Smart Buttons
« on: October 24, 2018, 19:25:21 pm »
PayPal Smart Buttons are easy to enable. Just create a PayPal Express checkout method like described here

Then just enable in the "layout section" the Smart Buttons. The whole "Language depended logo configuration" is obsolete then. Next version enabling of Smart Buttons will be moved to "PayPal settings" and the old options will be marked as deprecated or we just hide them per js.

Please tell your test results here.

I'm trying to setup paypal Smart Buttons in my e-shop. I've followed the your instructions regarding the Paypal express checkout (sandbox mode), also I've checked the "Enable Smart Buttons" but no smart buttons are displayed.
Paypal's page for integrading smart buttons is Do I have to follow these instructions?
The URL of my e-shop is, pls try to buy the Test product, to see what I mean.

How I can solve the problem?
Thanks in advance
