Hi, I work on a digital download store, tested the ps_paypal_api module with sandbox and works great except that the download purchases cannot get auto-confirmed,
so I thought that this might be an issue of the sandbox once it is for testing, and turned it to the proper setup using the API Username/API Password/Signature as generated by the paypal account.
The paypal account type is "Premier"/Verified (no Websites Payments Pro), and works great for years. Does it need to be Business or even needing to have "Websites Payments Pro"?
I made a product with 1 euro cost and entered real credit info to proceed to checkout.
I get the following errors:
Error: Error - Paypal did not complete the transaction. Please try again in a little while.
Error: Failure in Processing the Payment (ps_paypal_api)
my ps_paypal_api is the only payment method enabled. Setup:
Payment method type:
Use Payment Processor (also tried "Credit Card" / could this be the problem ? does it only work using "HTML-Form based (e.g. PayPal)" ? need an asnwer to this one please)
Accepted Credit Card Types:
Enable Direct Payment?: No
Sandbox Mode?: No
Show PayPal Errors: No
If I try with a sligtly different number than the real one I entered I do get:
Error: The Credit Card Number entered is not valid.
I have adminsitrator directory password protected, tried disabling this with no luck.
No SSL for now, also the site is in joomla/offline mode (could this be the issue ?)
with same settings, sandbox worked excellent...
any help appreciated..
