PayPal Express Checkout submission issue

PayPal Express Checkout submission issue

Hi

My Paypal Express checkout (on checkout.php page) submits back to my Home Page / goes nowhere. Here is the submission form code:-

<form name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_form" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>" method="post">
<h3 class="eC_CheckoutFormHeader">Fast, Secure Checkout with PayPal </h3>
<div class="eC_CheckoutFormBody">
<p>
<input type="image" alt="PayPal Express Checkout" name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_button" id="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_button" src="WA_eCart/PP_ECO_Scripts/btn_xpressCheckoutsm.gif" width="145" height="42"/>
</p>
<p>Save time. Checkout securely. Pay without sharing your financial information.</p>
</div>
</form>

I'm using server side includes and as I've had to edit the other checkout pages in this respect I'm guessing this is probably the issue.

Please advise for code edit/fix.

Regards

Glennyboy

Hi Glenn, could you post a link where I could view the page online? And can you post the actual page code in the forum here? I will take a look and see what I can dig up.

The Issue

Hi

For security I can't do that I'm afraid as that would show my API and Payment configurations.

The configuration is standard WA eCart and I have not amended the script. However as I am using SSi's the page checkout.php becomes index.php?mod=checkout.php and I believe herein lies the issue. The page is trying to submit to itself for the Paypal via:-

<form name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_form" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>" method="post">

But this can't be the case as the file checkout.php is an include.

I think I need direct WA Support on this, but any other insights are appreciated.

Regards

Glennyboy

sorry I'm not sure how that helps - I have all my pages set up as per the extension, but there is a clash between the form submission on self and using SSIs...

mine was done based on their extensions also. Your cart is empty and causing the redirect page behaviour to activate. Have you set up your checkout.php page to collect the Ecart form elements from the cart.php page?

Hi
Nope I ran a full test with items in the Cart. The Paypal Express checkout option fires back to my home page - again I'm sure this is because I'm incorporating the checkout.php as an include. So it goes back to my home page because the file index.php includes the file checkout.php / index.php?mod=checkout.

How do you get WA to answer here? I really appreciate all your suggestions, but it's not a good form of support. A WA representative could probably answer this in one post.

Cheers

yep, sounds like you need them to take a look at your files. They usually answer soon enough. Good luck with the problem, I know it can be frustating.

where you are passing a querystring variable to tell the server what page to load, you will need to modify the forms action to also pass any querystring variables that are passed in:



<form name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_form" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""; ?>" method="post">

So I'm passing from my checkout page to Paypal Express Checkout.

My checkout page is "index.php?mod=checkout"
confirm page is similarly "index.php?mod=confirm"
etc

How do I use your code with the above query string format?
