Express Checkout using the PayPal (New API)
« on: September 11, 2011, 17:38:55 pm »
Hi Folks, I may have been chasing my tail! I want to use the PayPal Express Checkout feature of the API provided in VM. I have a website payments pro account setup with a sandbox. How do I go about configuring my site to do this? do I need to put a special PayPal button somewhere? Many thanks, Clive.

A bit more detail: using VM1.1.9 and Joomla! 1.5.23. PayPal (New API) is the only enabled payment method with settings:

Sandbox Mode? Yes
Show PayPal Errors? Yes
Header Image URL    ...   
Payment Type        Sale
Check for CVV?        No
Enable Express Checkout button? Yes (no button appears?)       
Use Shipping Information?    Yes   
Enable Direct Payment?  No
Accept only verified buyers? No

Cheers, Clive.

Clive -
Did you ever get a reply?
I have a customer who's come to me and said PayPal will lower his discount rate if he uses PayPal Express checkout, but I'm without a clue as to how to do that...
