PayPal Direct Payment OR PayPal Website Payment Pro UK

Hi,

I'm so close I can taste it. Using eCart 4.5, everything works good accept for actual payment processing. Seems the PayPal Express checkout at the top works fine.

It's when I type in credit card into -- it takes me to the same page as paypal express checkout. Obviously, I don't want to have the customer re-key in their credit card info.

When I go to the local checkout under the server behavior and edit it ... it only gives me two paypal choices: PayPal Direct Payment OR PayPal Website Payment Pro UK. Which one do I select? I've been trying Paypal direct payment without success.

I'm signed up and wanting to use PayPal Pro, the one you guys seem to recommend the most.

Please advise. I suspect it's a setting on my confirm.php page ????

Payments Pro consists of using ExpressCheckout and DirectPay together. Express Checkout is the pay with PayPal option at the top of the checkout page, Direct Pay is when you fill out the form and proceed to the confirm page.

If you are getting to the PayPal site when entering cc info you might have an Express Checkout server behavior on your regular confirm page. Did you originally apply this with the checkout wizard? If so the server behaviors should all be in place for you, there should be no need to add them in. For DirectPay you will just need to have the DirectPay local checkout server behavior on the confirm page. The Express Checkout consists of three API calls and server behaviors. The Authorization goes on your checkout page, this takes them to PayPal to login. On the pp_confirm page you have the 'get payer profile' and the 'process transaction' Express Checkout server behaviors.

If you post back with your confirm page minus any sensitive details I will take a look to see if I can spot the issue.

Thanks Eric, this is starting to make sense. However, when you say above "Authorization" goes on checkout page do you mean "Authentication"?

Hate to be a stickler but I get confused easily. I do have authentication for paypal express on my checkout.php page, but nothing about authorization.

Please clarify. And thanks for hanging in there with me. paul

I was just trying to keep consistent with the terminology that you used in post #2, sorry for the confusion, I did not catch that you were referring to another server behavior.

On the checkout page you will have the server behavior titled "Authentication for PayPal Express Checkout".
