Paypal - System error ...
« on: November 22, 2018, 15:41:46 pm »
Hi there,

on a (german) installation we always used Paypal (Starter).

Today my customer says: When checking out via Paypal one gets redirected to Paypal but then it says:

"Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later." - in german it says:
Leider ist ein Systemfehler aufgetreten. Versuchen Sie es sp├Ąter noch einmal.

So we have Joomla  3.8.13
VirtueMart               3.4.2
PHP                        7.2.12

Any ideas what we can do / try?

(Also in use is the plugin: VP One Page Checkout)

Wait for PayPal to fix their system and try again?
