Paypal android MPL authorization failure

I am using Paypal MPL library in my Android app. Right now I am unable to authorize in checkout dialog after pressing "Pay With Paypal" button.

I enter my paypal credentials and press Buy, but always get - Login Failed.Please try again message.

There is only one error message in logs: 09-09 12:12:51.371: E/NetworkHandler(4602): encryptPassword faulted current time: Fri Oct 11 20:31:52 GMT+05:30 2013, expiration time: Sat Jun 22 13:26:51 GMT+05:30 2013

Testing went fine with sandbox accounts. But when I am using live paypal creds it is giving me this error. I tried wil mutiple paypal accounts and issue is still the same.

I also have correct live api id in the code.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks for your help!

Are you designing apps for android 4.0 or above?

PayPal MPL library is only updated as of May 2013 and is outdated.

The problem is with the encryption of the password which is decrypted incorrectly at the server side.

It should be OK on android 2.3 as the security requirement is lower than android 4.0 or above.

Yes I am desgigning for android 4.0 and above. I will check in android 2.3. What should be used to make it compatible for latest versions of android?

My potential customers are outside US as well.

I changed the MPL library with the one given in the below link and it started working.. I tried that earlier but it never worked. Strange. But finally it is resolved.


Thanks for your help.

Have a great day!!
