API Credentials

API Credentials

In pp_confirm.php and checkout.php the information requested is consistent with the PayPal API credentials asking for "Username" "Password" and "Signature" but in confirm.php it asks for "USER" "VENDOR" "PARTNER" "PWD" which are not. In a post from 2010 (See Below) explaining how to disable the sandbox you refer to these 3 scripts suggesting they are all the same. I do not know what data to put into the confirm.php script to make the sandbox work. The confirm.php script also does not contain the sandbox

What do I need to include in the confirm.php script. Is it the same as the login information for the paypal manager account?

Text from post explaining how to disable UseSandbox.

the paypal code is added to the checkout.php, confirm.php and pp_confirm.php page bu the checkout wizard.

on those pages look for code siomilar to:

$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0][$nextIndex] = "UseSandbox";
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[1][$nextIndex] = "true";

and change it to false.

also on those pages, the code that passes the API Username, password and Signature will need to be changed to use the live api info, it will look similar to:

$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0][$nextIndex] = "Username";
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[1][$nextIndex] = "<api user>";
$nextIndex = count($WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0]);
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0][$nextIndex] = "Password";
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[1][$nextIndex] = "<api pass>";
$nextIndex = count($WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0]);
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[0][$nextIndex] = "Signature";
$WA_PP_ECO_Set_params[1][$nextIndex] = "<api sig>";

I need this information to continue testing and implementing

I am not sure how the forum works as I have not had a need to use it. I do now.

In the above post I may not have been clear enough as to the issue. I can make the sandbox work. I have put the correct credentials in the files pp_confirm.php and checkout.php. The file confirm.php does not use the same information and I would really appreciate knowing what information to use. In the first two they use user, vendor and pwd which are the credentials provided by Paypal both for the sandbox and live system. In confirm.php it uses user, vendor, partner and pwd which are not provided as part of the paypal credentials. Does anyone have this information?

rather than making the change directly in code view, open the server behaviors panel, and find the eCart Local Checkout Server behavior. Double click it to make edits. it should be clearer to edit in the server behaviors rather than editing the code.

Got It

Thanks for the suggestion. I went ahead and used the PayPal manage login information in the confirm.php page and it worked.
