I have a 2 paypal accounts one personal the other is business. In my personal PayPal account. There is an option

Web site preferences Send your clients to my website after a payment

I have made extensive programming to use this option

In my business account at PayPal nobody seems to understand that I need the same functionality in my business account

So in my business account I need clients to be sent to my website to update my database (for example)

Does anyone know how to go about this in the business account?

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">

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)?
I've got to create a registration form on a website that has a paypal button.  I have no idea how to go about doing this since I've never done it before.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So I signed up my bank account so I can purchase something online because I lost my card. As soon I made the purchase, I go to pull out my account just to be secure, however, my purchase is "preapproved". The preapproved is just sitting there and no complete purchases were made. Just wondering how long it takes for the payment to be finished so I can pull out my bank account.
Let's say I make a non-profit website. That means it has no commercial interests.
I red that the executives can make a nominal fee. That's good enough for me. What, less than $5,000 / month?

I only need money for food and TV, internet/cable/power/ Zergling rushes
Can subscribers pay fees?

How can use the input value of a field form to calculate in a php form.
I want the result of that value to use it to ECHO in php to Paypal

Any help with your own code or suggestions would help

In my winforms .NET app I have a webbrowser control that I provide the code Paypal gave me for the button to have them make a purchase. Everything is fine until after they click on the button and it then informs them their "browser" is out of date and won't proceed. What can I do to this string to get them to PayPal site in this control?

I have a book on PDF which I expect to be about 500 MB in size. Far too big to email to the buyer, after purchase via PayPal. I will sell the PDF on my WordPress website.

Can I sell a PDF to an iPhone user?

I have no interest in diving back into being an Apple Developer at the moment, but will do so if people show an interest in my book. But, with my book selling on my website, are buyers forced to download the PDF on their PC's? And does this mean they must use Dropbox (for example) as a way to read the book on their iPhones?

I am curious.

I would like to have an html page with a flat price for a product, and shipping would be calculated based on Quantity selected. I have been trying to use HTML and PHP with no luck.
I want my HTML page to have :
Product flat price = 10
User select quantity (2 as default)
Shipping would be calculated based on TOTAL QUANTITY SELECTED (1 thru 4 $9.95,  above 4  $12.95)
Form field with total in order to pass that amount to paypal

Ex. user enters 4 as quantity
total = 10*4 + 9.95

Ex. user enters 5 as quantity
total = 10*5 + 12.95

I am building a small ecommerce marketplace.

Companies can add products in USD, EUR, GBP.

Customers can purchase product from multiple different Companies at the checkout.

I'm trying to get my head around how I should handle a Customer who has 3 products in their basket with 3 different currencies:


What should the Customer pay?
Hi, is there any other paying services similar to PayPal that one can consider to use?
Setting up a new store. There will be about 1300 different inventory items.  I have a merchant Visa/MC processing account. Is there a way to process all the sales on an iPad? When I was at a farmer's market once, the shop owner did the whole thing on his iPad. Typed in the product code on the pad, swiped my card and I signed right on the screen. The receipt got emailed to me in lieu of printing. I really liked the simple solution. This is also the way the Apple salespeople do it at Apple stores. No need for a big cash register set up. Not even a computer or printer.

So..... what app is that? What was that guy using at the farmer's market?

FYI: My merchant services provider is PayPal (NOT to be confused with PayPal "request money" via email). It's a service that PayPal has that directly processes the Visa/MC WITHOUT the PayPal stuff that most people do (i.e. sign up for an account, yada yada).

Anyway, if the above could be done, great. and the following would be an extra bonus, if possible:

1) Scan barcodes with the iPad camera
2) keep track of inventory

-  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  

Anyway, I want to keep this simple. The farmer's market owner's solution is exactly what I'd like. If the scanner/inventory makes it all much more complicated, I can eliminate that.

Thanks for your help!!

I see many content creators on youtube asking for money with links to patreon account

I click on patreon and account is not active

why do you think that is?

Does patreon suspend many users

This patron isn’t supporting any creators at the moment.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

        I hope I can explain my goal here in a way which makes sense.  So, here it goes.  Basically, I wish to upload a variety of text files saved as MS Word 2013 documents for partial viewing using webnode.com.  For instance, the partial document would only contain a free introduction of the paper while leaving out the body and conclusion.  However, the entire document would only be available through a PayPal link.  

         Realizing my difficulty from time to time explaining my goals, I will certainly understand if further clarification is needed.  At any rate, I look forward to reviewing any suggestions for accomplishing what I have in mind.   Hope to hear from everybody soon.

         Thank you

Long time i didnt use paypal eventhough i had one paypal account which is not using

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering how I might can login into my PayPal settings and determine if an email address is setup to receive PayPal payments.  

           Thank you

I have a client who says that only 18% of their online sales (of a book) come from what PayPal terms, "mobile devices", which appears to be significantly lower than what his web stats indicate are mobile visitors.  All things being equal, his sales should be well over 50% mobile, since well over 50% of his visitors are mobile.

Does PayPal consider tablets such as iPad and Android to be mobile devices?  Or are just phones mobile devices?  I cannot find anywhere where PayPal defines this.
Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I am concerned about a PayPal refund which was completed on 2/23/2017 but never shows up within my PayPal balance.    I did check my bank account statement and the amount which PayPal indicates being refunded actually exist as a credit.   Needless to say, I am confused about this situation.  Can someone experienced with PayPal transactions shed some light upon this situation?  

           Thank you

I understand Paypal now has a Bot for Slack....curious why they didn't introduce to Whatsapp. Does Whatsapp not allow bots or did Paypal want to start smaller?

Secondly, I currently have a mobile app that our company users utilise to reset passwords, check status of tickets and things. If I was to introduce a bot here could this be something along the lines of

"How can I help you today"
"I want to reset my password"

...or something more complex?
