PayPal Standard . . .

PayPal Standard . . .

. . . the concentration is on "why does checkout to PayPal not display transaction/ or get to account"? I've cross-referenced PHP "input" info and actually am now getting a "Sorry - your last action could not be completed" screen message from PayPal.

The "Checkout" page link is:
TWF_Artisans_Checkout.php
The process begins at:
TWF_Artisans_FishshapeTowels.html

Thanks in advance . . .

I checked out your site, since the code is hidden I can't see exactly whats going on but I can try to help.

I believe you merged the confirm and checkout page together there are hidden fields that need to be carried to the paypal standard page. Also on the check out page you have billing and shipping. Unfortunately you don't need both biller and shipping because paypal standard only ships to billers address they don't have a choice there, sorry.
Get rid of one of the forms and I would leave the checkout and confirm pages separate because paypal standard is difficult that way and webassit although capable isn't as fully customizable as you would like so leave it as it is.

Why did you make me go to your Florida Keys Fishing page, I live in Florida and try to go to the Keys whenever I can. Now I have fishing on my mind. If you need more help you can contact me by replying.

Somewhere there's a simple solution . . .

Here's the "lead-in" PHP for the "Checkout" page:

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/eCart1_PHP.php");
?>
<?php
$eCart1->GetContent();
?>
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if("" == "") {
$_SESSION["TaxRate"] = "".((isset($_POST["billStateList"]))?$_POST["billStateList"]:"") ."";
}
?>
<?php
//WA eCart Check Out Update
if (isset($_POST["eCart1_Checkout_1"]) || isset($_POST["eCart1_Checkout_1_x"])) {
$eCart1->UpdateCart();
$eCart1->cartAction = "CheckOutUpdate";
}
?>
<?php
//WA eCart Redirect Check Out
if (isset($_POST["eCart1_Checkout_1"]) || isset($_POST["eCart1_Checkout_1_x"])) {
$Redirect_redirStr="";
if ($Redirect_redirStr != "") {
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']) && $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] != "") {
if (strpos($Redirect_redirStr, "?") === false) {
$Redirect_redirStr .= "?".$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}
else {
$Redirect_redirStr .= "&".$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}
}

$eCart1->redirStr = $Redirect_redirStr;
}
$eCart1->cartAction = "Checkout";
}
?>
<?php
// WA eCart Redirect
if ($eCart1->redirStr != "") {
header("Location: ".$eCart1->redirStr);
}
?>

I followed the "WebAssist eCommerce Recipes360" PDF in setting this up, but I've been having problems. Obviously, my lack of familiarity with PHP is the biggest problem . . .
I'm in Florida, too - a friend of a former client is behind this Weekly Fisherman outfit. Long story of a fading newspaper concern - I've never been to the Keys . . .
Yikes!

Do you have customer information, address, name etc populating variables yet? Normally the information is sent to paypal after the confirm page. Have you read the paypal documentation for using paypal standard?

Customer Info . . .

. . . info is gathered here:
TWF_Artisans_CustomerInfo.php
That info is carried over to the "Checkout" page here:
TWF_Artisans_Checkout.php
I have followed the instructions specified in the WebAssist eCommerce Recipes360 PDF that came with the eCart v3 that was purchased a few years ago(?). I have since been upgraded to v4.1.5, but the Recipes are not current (screen shots, terminology, etc.) & I think that I've blown it somewhere.
There are other posts (see user "wetware" in this forum) relating to this latest website's progress (read: problems) . . .
Thanks in advance!

You've got your pages all mixed up. Built yourself another little site, no remote, no test, no db, and then make a page with a checkout button. The run the checkout wizard. You will see what the checkout and confirm pages should look like. What you have for a checkout page is really checkout mixed in with confirm. Build those forms as your example and then fil them in with your information.

Re-do leads to . . .

. . . a problem.
As the "Checkout" page is being built, after a checkout button has been created, the following step involves the "Checkout Wizard". So, reaching the "Specify payment provider account details", I enter my PayPal Member ID and that yields the following error message:

While executing onMouseUp in WA eCart Checkout Wizard.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occurred:
At line 310 of file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\Configuration\Shared\WebAssist\eCart\ChWizJS\P ages.js": document.WizardPage_7.document.PPECO_Signature has no properties

There is no WebAssist sub-directory in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\Configuration\Shared structure (Vista 64bit Biz) . . .

Any ideas?

Incident resolved . . .

. . . kind of a touchy tech guy, though.
