PayPal Express - returning error message on failure page

I have a cart where the only payment option is going to be PayPal Express but I cannot find a way to return an error message to the client when the transaction fails as there appears to be no bindings available with the "Long Error Message" that I have used before.

Am I missing something ?

THis is the standard page code created:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/eCart1_PHP.php");
?><?php
$eCart1
->GetContent();
?>
<?php
if ($eCart1->IsEmpty())     {
  
$eCart1->redirStr "/view-cart.php";
  
$eCart1->cartAction "RedirectIfEmpty";
}
?>
<?php
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($eCart1->redirStr != "")     {
  
header("Location: ".$eCart1->redirStr);
}

you need to add the bindings to the binding panel.


on the bindings panel, click the plus button. Select eCart -> Checkout -> PayPal Express Checkout.

There are three express checkout bindings group:
Authorize With Paypal Express Checkout
Get Payer Profile From Paypal Express Checkout
Process Transaction With Paypal Express Checkout

each one contains info about the three stages of the express checkout experience.

Jason,

which one will give me the error message after the payer goes to paypal and is returned to the site ?

when the pp_confirm page loads, the Get payer profile behavior is executed, if there is an error in retrieving the payer profile, the Get Payer Profile From Paypal Express Checkout will contain that error.


when the user clicks the confirm order button, the transaction is processed with paypal. If an error occurs while processing the transaction, the Process Transaction With Paypal Express Checkout binding group will have the error.
