Hi

I have had my cards hacked enough times to get really annoyed.
I receive balance sheets with card purchases in Rhode Island, or California, and I live in NC !

I paid with Paypal today, which means, my card was never exposed to direct hackers, I think.
Is that correct? VISA always refunds these fraudulent charges ( >$5,000, total, one time, over a few months)
Do hackers steal my paypal login?
Must I always do (card) online payments with paypal? I'm sick of cancelling cards for safety's sake
Thanks

Can you insert a module in another module?  I was requested to insert a PayPal donation option (which is a module) in the top banner of our website.  Is that possible?  I don't see a way to get that to work.  Can the PayPal donation function be set up as something other than a module so it would work?  Thanks.

I have a client who's selling tangible goods (ie: food products) online using WordPress & Woocommerce and who's based out of New Hampshire in the US, .. where there's no sales tax.  

Should I be setting up any kinds of special tax tables to ensure that customers are paying sales tax based on whatever US state they're having the merchandise shipped to? In other words, .. if someone from AZ purchases something from the NH business owner and has it shipped to them in AZ .. does the extra 8.1% sales tax apply in this situation?  Or not?

If the extra state specific sales tax DOES apply .. then what's the most efficient way for me to set that up within WooCommerce?

Thanks,

Hi everybody, I'm not able to finalize development of PayPal IPN Listener.
I'm integrating Paypal into a php/Mysql based website. IPN fails when I try to add a new record to Mysql table of orders.

I make one step back to explain the issue.
I succeded in creating (in the Sandbox environment) merchant express checkout button and fully configured IPN notifications.
Uploaded code to my php page once clicked the 'buy now' button, connection passes smoothly to Paypal Sandbox asking buyer to log in.
Once buyer is logged in it's possible to interact with Paypal and buy.
IPN listener successfully gets purchase parameters and report on a file (just for debugging) parameters and sql string to be used in my PDO.
Everything works just fine and on the backend of the merchant profile I see the purchase notification appearing in the IPN history and parameters are clearly showing that payment has been succesfully made.

Problem is given at PDO call.
PDO call to open connection and execute sql to add record fails.
PDO parameters are ok (same throughout the whole site), sql works fine (run directly to mysql web interface it does its dirty work).
Try-catch doesn't capture any exception and script to create log file (during PDO) doesn't run.

Any advice? Many thanks !

I want to change the currency code, but it seems it won't react if i merely change it in the html. Is that the 'fault' of Paypal itself maybe?

btw: i can't change the donate button to one of the <form> type as the WP installation won't allow plugins
btw 2: i can't seem to generate any other kind of donate button in my own Paypal account

Hi Experts

Can anyone recommend an effective WP Plugin that can handle Subscription payments via Stripe and PayPal?
Most Shopping Carts Iv'e seen are too big for my needs.  I have a few products but monthly / annual service subscriptions is my primary focus.  It will need to be simple for the client to use.

Many thanks in advance

I am trying to get a site setup which uses s2member.  It is a wordpress site.  i am getting the below error after a payment is made through paypal.  After a payment is made it is supposed to redirect the user back to the site to register after they have paid for their membership.

ERROR: Unable to verify $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"].
Please contact Support for assistance.

If you are the site owner, please check the custom value in your Button Code. It MUST start with your domain name.


Below is the button code i am using:

We calculate taxes based on shipping zip code. We get the shipping details of the payer after they authorize payment in the paypal window. I am trying to figure out how to update the payment after we calculate new total after getting the zip code to determine taxes. When I check the payment after execute, seems to not have received the update. Here is what I have:


payment: function(data, actions) {
              createPaymentRequestLineItems();
              calculateTotalToCharge();

              return actions.payment.create({
                payment: {
                  transactions: [
                    {
                      item_list: {
                        items: payment_request_line_items_paypal
                      },
                      amount: {
                        total: payment_request_total_paypal,
                        currency: 'USD',
                        details: {
                          subtotal: payment_request_total_paypal - total_tax - total_shipping,
                          tax: total_tax,
                          shipping: total_shipping
                        }
                      }
                    }
                  ]
                }
              });
            },

            onAuthorize: function(data, actions) {
              window.alert('Payment authorized!');
              console.log(data);

              var payment_id = data.paymentID;
              var payer_id = data.payerID;

I'm developing a game on html5 with WebGl and I want to integrate PayPal service for digital goods in the game (coins, credits, boosters etc..). All examples that I have found in documentation regarding Express Checkout was connected with PayPal checkout.js lib that substitute a div for IFrame with PayPal button. I don't have ability to put such kind of button on my page because I draw everything on Canvas. I need ability to create dynamic requests and be notified when purchase transaction is done. So, is there a way to use PayPal on the client-side without standard IFrame solution?

I am working with paypal payment. I want to implement payment condition below:-

Block payment amount on card at the time of reservation. If card cannot be blocked reject the event and add "Payment Declined" to the end of the description. Take payment at 12:01 am the day of the event.

For recurring events...
Block payment for first event at time of reservation. Take payment 12:01 am the day of the event.
For next event in the recurrence series, Block payment after the previous payment is taken and take payment at 12:01 am the day of the event. Continue this cycle until all reservations are complete.
 If card cannot be blocked reject the event and add "Payment Declined" to the end of the description but continue with the series of events.

Please know me how to implement.

We are using paypal hosted buttons (have been for a long time).

We had to make some changes, now things don't work. Of course Paypal takes their money.

We specify the return location on our site where we want paypal to go back to when it's finished.

The code for the hosted button is:
	<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="3FPLZZ79QQXRC">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="http://www.backflowtestreport.com/ppreturn.php?fr=f&ag=Friendswood&tp=A&uid=">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>

Open in new window


Note the form variable named return. The return goes to ppreturn.php but NONE of the query string variables are passed (ft, ag, tp & uid). Our site is now https (rather than http as coded in the form), could that make it fail? I am doubtful as it does go to ppreturn.php.

Does paypal still support this mechanism (using a variable called "return" to specify where to go back to)?

The following script is producing invoices.  It was working fine in 4.5, but my server has upgraded to CF 7.0.  The first invoice is produced, and then I encounter the error,  I have removed all addresses from the database except for the 20 or so valid ones from people who bid in the auction.  I am not a CF expert, and I am freaking out a little bit.
