IE erroring out at PayPal but not Chrome or Firefox

I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing a problem with IE when processing an order through paypal. Customers using IE have not been able to finish the order process using PayPal because when they submit to go to the PayPal payment page it erros out. This is only happening with IE. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks.

Ok

This is a registration and payment form found at Registration/

If you want to go through the registration process, then just add a single person registration to the checkout and check out. I will delete your information when you are done. Make sure you use IE for registration.

Thanks for your help with this.

This is an issue with using iframes.


on the confirm page, change the form tag:

<form name="checkout_PP_LI_Hid" action="https://www.PayPal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">





to:

<form target="paypal" name="checkout_PP_LI_Hid" action="https://www.PayPal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">

Does not take infomation with.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for going through the registration and checking it out. I do appreciate it.

I changed the form tag yet now it just directs it to the page without passing the variable strings needed to process the payment. Any thoughts would be helpful, do I need to add the variables to the tag as well?

Thanks Again,

Chris

Got it working

Jason,

So after I thought about it a bit I went ahead and made the confirm page with form just a regular page (no iframe). Works like a champ. I read on the PayPal site that they do not allow form submissions from iframes as well. It is fixed now and should be smooth sailing from here on.

Thanks again for your help.

Chris
