Paypal doesn't work ie only
« on: March 31, 2011, 18:46:43 pm »

I'm testing the paypal method and i have checked that it doesn't work on ie.

It works in Chrome 10.0, firefox 3.0 and 4.0, opera 11, safari but when i probe with internet explorer 8, doesn't work.

The problem shown is "the eternal issue: Invalid credit card number o credit card verification code.  Error: Failure process of pay(ps_paypal_api)"

anyone can help me?

This sounds like the problem that is frequently reported: IE8 is incompatible with the Paypal API. Is this just a problem with the Sandbox or does it affect the working system? Does anyone know? Has anyone found a way to solve the IE8 problem? I've tried tweaking with the compatibility mode settings, (as some have suggested) but that doesn't seem to help.
