Express Paypal Cart button sequence?

Express Paypal Cart button sequence?

I worked with Dani yesterday to get my cart functioning properly and it did, except now in trying to use the optional Express button on the checkout.php page, it doesn't quite work.

Originally the wizard had it going directly to paypal Authorization but it was not processing the payment after I signed in and it did not add it to the Orders Database, nor was it showing the pp_confirm.php page. I tried changing the return URL to pp_confirm.php, and then submit, but it did the same thing, resulting in a failed transaction... Is the express checkout supposed to avoid the summary database entirely? If not, where might this sequence be breaking down?

There seems to be no way or reason to have or use the pp_checkout.php page since it is redundant and if someone presses the express button, it should bypass it anyway...

Just a bit confused as to the proper sequence...

I'm not sure where the pp_checkout page comes from? It isn't normally created by the wizard and it does seem redundant.

All of the database and email functionality for the paypal express checkout should be on the pp_confirm page.

Sorry, I was wrong about the pp_checkout page, but the checkout was skipping entirely the pp_confirm page. What should be the return URL for paypal authentication ?

Authentication should be on the checkout page and would have the return url of the pp_confirm page. Maybe the problem is the action for the express checkout page should submit to itself and not to the pp_confirm page directly.

Thanks RAY that was the problem. I had removed <?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?> when the item started failing and posted to the pp_confirm page, which didn't help. Restoring it to the self reference allowed me to complete the transaction. It must have been another error that caused the glitch...
