User ID Error on PayPal Checkout
« on: May 02, 2008, 18:22:49 pm »
I have VM 1.1.0 on Joomla 1.5.3

I set it for No Account Creation

When I get through the checkout process and click the Confirm Order button, I get the following error:

Error: Sorry, but it is not possible to order without a User ID.
Please contact the Store Administrator if this Error occurs again.

Maybe this isn't a PayPal issue, but related to something else with checkout/user management. Here's another similar post:

This problem has been really weird. Every time I re-tried checking out, it always brought up the billing info from the first time I registered. I had to manually delete the entry from jos_vm_user_info.

After more fooling around, I think the No Account Creation has some bug in it because I could never get it to work. It always brought up the billing info I entered the first time I checked out, and I kept getting the same error at the beginning of this topic on the order confirmation. It seems like it's not setting a temporary User ID correctly.

I had to switch to Silent Registration.
