Yes. PayPal have a limitation on the number of buttons it returns. If you have more than a 100+ buttons, then PayPal won't return any buttons.

In Future dot releases we are going to address this issue by adjusting the dates to only return Buttons between certain dates.

We received the same message (Dreamweaver extension). So what is the solution? Are we limited to 100 buttons or do we just delete the old PayPal buttons and start over?

Unfortunately, there is no good work around this issue, however, if you are not using your old buttons then you can delete them, and as long as you have less than a 100 buttons then the buttons will get populated and you are able to use them.

The issue is a limitation to the PayPal API which only returns the first 100 buttons.

next iteration?

So is there a new version out now or coming soon that will allow us to specify a time frame for the api calls?

Paypal needs to address this in the API.

the API itself is where the limitation is.

We will not be able to fix this till PayPal fixes the API.

When I spoke with PayPal, they did confirm that they only return 100 buttons *at a time*, but we could get another 100 buttons, then another, if we adjusted the time frame by increments. I guess my question is will you be doing what Dani said above and give us a way to adjust the time frame?
