PayPal Express problems
« on: November 19, 2018, 19:14:28 pm »
I’m having a couple of problems getting the PayPal Express plugin working.
  • It is a multi-currency shop.  If I am shopping in GBP, when I go to PayPal Express, the amount shown is in USD, and Paypal shows me the exchange rate (because my customer PayPal account is in GBP).  I turned debug on for the plugin. and what seems to be the problem is that currency code is not being set.  The line in the debug says:
    What do I need to do to get VM to pass the correct currency code.
  • If I am not registered or logged in, after Paypal returns control to VM then the address details are still blank. I expected PayPal to pass the billing/shipping address details from the PayPal account.  It does pass the email address.  Is this just a problem with the plugin settings, or is there something I need to configure on the PayPal website? (I tried this with a free PP Express plugin, and it's not receiving billing/shipping address details either)
