v4 asp UK PayPal

How do I get the checkout to access the UK paypal site?

Totals are shown as Dallors and not uk pounds (as I would wish)

Thanks

For standard checkout at the UK PayPal site use the following at the beginning of your checkout form:
<form name="checkout_PP_LI" method="POST" action="https://www.PayPal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr">

To show amounts in pounds, put the following line in your checkout form:
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">

HTH,
Simon

can you give some more specifics on the problem?

Are you using Paypal payments pro UK?

Or are you using PayPal Payments Standard?


you say:

  Thanks but that did not do it  



can you describe what is happening versus what you are expecting to happen?

do you have a link where I can see the issue?

Hi
I'm using PayPal Standard (UK)

photocrystal.asp

The checkout was taking me to www.paypal.com and displaying my prices in $ NOT £

Now (and I havent changed anything) it goes to: www.paypal-business.co.uk/

Is this correct? I thought it should just take the buyer to the login screen in order to pay?

Thanks

Glyn

The action of the form on the checkout page should be to post to the confirm.asp page


on the confirm page, find the following tag:
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" id="currency_code" value="USD" />



and change it to:
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" id="currency_code" value="GBP" />

Ok... thanks for that pointer. But did you actually try to purchase??? The PayPal screen is re-directing so does not log into my account for payment to take place! No cart details seem to hit PayPal.

Is it something I need to set up on PayPal?

Would you please try to purchase (from the site) to see what is occuring at the PayPal end?

Thanks

I can't test purchasing from your site because the action of the checkout form on the checkout page has been changed to point to paypal instead of pointing to the confirm page.

On the checkout page, change the form tag:
<form name="checkout_PP_LI" method="POST" action="https://www.PayPal.co.uk/cgi-bin/webscr">


to:
<form name="checkout_PP_LI" method="POST" action="confirm.asp">


the checkout page should not be posting to paypal, the post to paypal should occur on the confirm page.

Ok, done that and seems to work.... can't see the whole process as I'm logging onto my paypal account.

Not sure how that line of code got screwed????

Could you let me know if it is working?

Thanks for the pointer...
