I have successfully implemented PayPal payment gateway integration into my Laravel e-commerce web application.  However I am still trying to find out if suppose the following scenario happens then how does the recovery take place.

1) The E-commerce app sends details to PayPal
2) The E-Commerce app +/ hosting encounters a problem
3) PayPal send a response to the E-commerce app
     * next course of action is for the E-commerce app to process the response and update the order status. (i.e. Pending to Paid)

However since the app +/ hosting is down then how do we identify which order encountered a problem at that point of time and recover the order status. Is there a PayPal api that help to achieve this?

Your help is kindly appreciated.

Thank You.

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

Having problem getting my VB.NET web site to use PayPal TLS 1.2.   I am using the PayFloPro API and setting a KEY value to the endpoint URL.  I am running Framework 4.5.1 & working in Visual Studio 2015. This line is in the code: ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls12

PayPal lists several endpoints for testing.  "These endpoints allow only TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 connections:" = pilot-payflowpro.paypal.com
When I use this it connects fine.

Then PayPal has another paragraph that says "PayPal has created a new endpoint - https://tlstest.paypal.com - to help you verify that your systems can support the latest security standards".  When I use this it fails with message "RESPMSG = Unexpected transaction state, PayPal_Connection_OK".  Transaction does not go through.

Any idea what is going on here?      Thanks in advance.

Problems with the Etsy Platform, recently...

I have a friend who was doing well for years on Etsy, selling crafts and keeping busy, with a work backlog that was quite dependable. But then it shut off, like a light-switch.

And others I know who depend on Etsy also seem to have the volume of business shot off.

Is this a known problem?

Was there, perhaps, a software change that caused a problem that can be rectified?

Please give me as much information as you have to help me see if there is anything that can be done.


Thanks!

We are collecting dues for a family reunion. Adult "dues" ( let's call them tickets to make it easier ) are $100, kids are $75.

I have a simple form that asks the family name, how many adult tickets, how many kid tickets.

Can someone show me how to send this information to PayPal for processing, please?

Our site is on a PHP server, so a PHP sample would be great, or Javascript.

Thank you

Using the PayPal sandbox environment, I am able to successful send an item for purchase to PayPal. PayPal displays the purchase screen with the correct information. I click the ‘Pay Now’ button and the transaction completes. The successful transaction shows in both the buyer and seller accounts.

PayPal returns to the specified url and has the PaymentID, Token, and PayerID.

The problem is there is nothing in the Response.Form. I search thru the items and there are no items. An objHTTP.Send returns INVALID from PayPal.
Using Telerik Fiddler, there is nothing being returned…other than the url items.

Below is the code I am using.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

<%
Dim Item_name, Item_number, Payment_status, Payment_amount
Dim Txn_id, Receiver_email, Payer_email
Dim objHttp, str

Response.Write "PaymentID=" & Request.QueryString("PaymentID") & "*<BR>"
Response.Write "Token=" & Request.QueryString("Token") & "*<BR>"
Response.Write "PayerID=" & Request.QueryString("PayerID") & "*<BR>"

Response.Write "<table><tr><td>Name</td><td>Value</td></tr>"
For Each Item In Request.Form
    Response.Write "<tr><td>" & item & "</td><td>" & Request.Form(item) & "</td></tr>"
Next
Response.Write "</table>"
 
' read post from PayPal system and add 'cmd'
str = Request.Form & "&cmd=_notify-validate"

Response.Write "str: " & str & "*<BR>"
 
' post back to PayPal system to validate
' Note: either of these work
' SET objHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP")

How to check whether my Magento  CE 1.9.3.3 is already compliant in regards to PayPal security changes on the following?

Quickly getting sales for my in-person tours of Boston

I have a tour planned to provide an in-person view of some shocking discoveries I have revealed in my book. And I need to find quick ways to sell tickets.

Topics are very juicy... 9/11 and Boston architecture which heralded in the attacks, BEFORE 2001.

I would consider old-fashioned methods, like having someone hand out brochures in busy places. Advertising in publications, but that takes time to get established.


But I suspect the high-tech options are more scalable and cheaper.

I MAY use EventBrite to sell tickets since I want people to be able to buy tickets on their mobile devices, and really do not want ti reprograms my WordPress site, just to have a sub-optimal solution.

I will eventually need a FaceBook page, to help spread referrals. But I would consider prioritizing that Facebook page if that were to be the prime way to promote the tours.

What kinds of things should I consider when making my decision about how to promote and manage my tours?

Thanks

PayPal and/or Square?

I have a merchant PayPal account and a PayPal card swiper. And I am about to start offering in-person tours where I want to accept cash-less payments.

I need to accept as many payment methods as possible, and hopefully turn away no one.

Can I use PayPal to process credit cards without requiring someone to log onto their PayPal account?

Does PayPal accept AMEX and Discover?

If I purchased the EMV Chip Reader from PayPal, is there any reason to use SQUARE?

On a second note...

Does SQUARE offer a lower discount rate than PayPal?

I would consider using both PayPal and SQUARE if they have complementing services.

Thanks

Nowadays, PayPal is one of the most widespread payment systems all over the world. It makes internet payments easy and quite fast. Even online gaming providers which have the premium content option or gaming staff for real money are accepting PayPal in their products. What is more surprising, even online casinos like ones from this list http://free-slots-no-download.com/paypal/ allow you to make payments with it from your account. So I am interested in your opinion about it. How do you think, why it is so popular?

Need a ticket management system for a speaking tour

I need an easy to configure ticket sales service with some basic features:

- At first I will give tickets for free
- I want to switch to charging money per ticket, with the flip of a switch
- I'd like eventually offer the first X tickets for free, then charge a fee after that the free tickets have been taken

I need to support multiple speaking dates with multiple locations

I have no merchant credit card service and need a service which combines payment processing.

I need to accept many payment methods and not require a person to have a PayPal account in order to use a Visa card.

What are some choices?

I do have a WordPress site with a WooCommerce plug-in. But I suspect I would get up and running faster if a choose a full-service website for this.

Thanks

Running the following CURL command:
curl https://tlstest.paypal.com

Open in new window


I am faced with an error to do with the  SSL certificate:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details:
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed
More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
 of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). The default
 bundle is named curl-ca-bundle.crt; you can specify an alternate file
 using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
 the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
 problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
 not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
 the -k (or --insecure) option.
[#### ~]$ curl --tlsv1.2 https://tlstest.paypal.com/
curl: option --tlsv1.2: is unknown
curl: try 'curl --help' for more information
[#### ~]$ curl --tlsv1 https://tlstest.paypal.com/

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

Azure has a changed a lot since it was originally introduce by adding new services and features. Do you know everything you need to about Azure? This course will teach you about the Azure App Service, monitoring and application insights, DevOps, and Team Services.

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,
- Yvan

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
