No joy, and it's getting pretty frustrating to have to keep re-building these pages and losing all my original formatting and changes.

the problem seems to be that nothing really seems to tally with the wizard and paypal......

Route 1 - trying to set up using Paypal Pro US & Paypal API credentials:

I have the following credentials (I'll use ++++++++++++ as the signature for the moment)

Credential API Signature
API Username
Signature ++++++++++++++++

Step 2 of the checkout asks for

Merchant Account username
Merchant account password
Merchant account signature

are these the same as the API credentials? Is a Merchant Account Signature the same as an API Signature? I have assumed so and input these values.

step 3 asks for Paypal Express checkout option details


Is this the same as the API credentials again? Or is this the email address and password that i would use to log into the paypal account? it would look like the latter but, if so, what is the "SIgnature/Vendor" it asks for - the same as the API signature?

SO far as I am aware, I only have an email address and a password for the Paypal Account, I dont have a separate "signature" - unless it's the API one..?

I tried adding the username and password that i use to log into the account, and the API signature as it appears to be the only "signature" that i have.

This just routes to checkout_failure. when i try it live. and, having added the full response binding for Paypal Pro UK (there isnt an option for US..?) i cant get it to show the response info either when the failure page comes up, (which wasnt a problem before...?)


Try to pay via local checkout goes to failure
Try to pay by credit card goes to failure

Rebuild pages again....

Route 2 - trying to set up using Paypal Pro UK & Paypal API credentials:

Step 1 asks for


How does this correlate to the API Credentials??!

Then it asks for Express checkout options as per the above Route 1.

Since these value titles just dont seem to match up, I could be here for days entering different permutations.....? There doesnt seem much hope in just copnstantly rebuilding the pages without some clear instruction on what goes where here. I can supply all API/LOg in info I have been given, I just need to know wher eit all goes....

I know it can work with Paypal Web Pro UK as i've used it before (some values have subsequently changed do i cant check all the settings for that one to compare unfortunately).

I appreciate the assistance to date but could someone give this some specific attention to get it resolved quickly - day or night. It's ok saying try this and try that but i could spende days trying to get a result, having paid for a "wizard" to interpret this.

i'm not complaining - i love the products otherwie - i'm just frustrated and under time pressure and i cant see that this ought to be a major issue. maybe i'm being dumb over it, but it i could've solved this by now i would have!!

help please. thanks
