Goes to pp_checkout_failure.php

Goes to pp_checkout_failure.php

Ran the wizard,
Used a sandbox seller address.
add to cart
go to checkout page
click Checkout with PayPal button
Immediately goes to pp_checkout_failure.php

I've tried a real pp address as well - same thing.
Regular checkout works fine

deleted, redid - same thing
deleted eCart, updated from 5.0 to 5.02 - same thing.

header("Location: ""pp_checkout_failure.php"); exit;
  else {
$eCart1->redirStr $WA_PP_ECO_SetResult->ECOServer;

Why does it say WPPro in the above code? Should it not say Standard or an abreviation thereof?

This appears to be a bug in eCart when selecting to use PayPal Standard. I have logged this in the bug base.

To work around the issue, you will need to obtain API Credentials from paypal for use with Express Checkout.

Once you have obtained the api credentials, open the cehckout page and double click the "Authentication For PayPal Express Checkout" server behavior.

change the System to US and paste the API Username, password and signature into the appropriate places.

You will also need to edit the "Get Payer Profile For Paypal Express Checkout" and the "Process transaction with PayPal express Checkout" behaviors on the pp_confirm page.
