Which Paypal service do I use?

14 years 1 month ago #3080 by StevieC
I've installed Vodes with my Joomla 1.5 (legacy mode) and it looks good. I've tried to test it in sandbox mode but it still redirects to Paypal and I get an error message about invalid email address. Do I still need to sign up for a merchant account with Paypal to use the sandbox mode? Which Paypal merchant srvice do I sign up for?

Note that Vodes is not tested with Joomla 1.5.

Hi Saka,
  I've created a sandbox account. Set up a merchant test account. Paypal's given me an email address for this acount which I've entered into the Vodes config and set sandbox to on.

When I try to buy Vodes I keep getting this message from Paypal. Any ideas what I need to do?


We cannot process this transaction because there is a problem with the PayPal email address supplied by the seller. Please contact the seller to resolve the problem. If this payment is for an eBay listing, you can contact the seller via the "Ask Seller a Question" link on the listing page. When you have the correct email address, payment can be made at www.paypal.com .

Hmm, no, I have no idea. If you did everything right it should work as I tested it with Sandbox. Then again, it was long time ago, it's possible that PayPal changed something or that there is some conflict in Joomla 1.5. I really can't tell without testing.

Fair enough. I don't think it's the fault of Vodes. I suspect I need to give paypal cc and bank details even though I'm only testing at present.

I'll get back to you after I try that.

Cheers.
