For payPal Standard, enter the email address associated with your PayPal business Account.

the shipping=fail querystring variable on the end of the checkout failure page means that the failure is caused by the shipping rate lookup, what shipping rate provider do you select.

RE: powerstore shipping rate failure

We are using federal express. A meter code was obtained and entered into the associated area.

In regards to the paypal standard. The email address was entered and a test purchase was attempted. The site would go to the cart failure page > c...?shipping=fail

And would not enter into paypal or show the cart. when API credentials are added to the " PAYPAL Express" the store flows through to the paypal site for payment. So, it will work for the Express but, not for the Standard . Is this due to the federal express information.?

following information was obtained for fed ex account:
Meter Number

* one additional note. I noticed an IPN Page: address. We did not find a place to enter this address in paypal. would this cause an issue?

Thank you.

How do we resolve that issue?

the issue is the shipping failure, shipping is calculated at different times in the process using express or standard.

add the following code to the checkout failure page to write the full request and full response from fed ex to the screen for debugging:


if(!session_id()) session_start();
"<p>FedEX: <br />"
"Full Request: ".(isset($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_FedEx_FullRequest"])?htmlentities($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_FedEx_FullRequest"]):"n/a")."<br />";  
"Full Response: ".(isset($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_FedEx_FullResponse"])?htmlentities($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_FedEx_FullResponse"]):"n/a")."<br /></p>"

from the poser store documentation for setting the IPN page:

PayPal Standard

If you are using PayPal Standard as your payment gateway, you will be provided with an IPN page URL. This URL will need to be added to your PayPal Standard account details on the PayPal website.

1. Copy the IPN page URL that appears on the Gateway Settings tab of the Settings page in your Store Manager.
2. Log into the PayPal website at
3. Choose the Profile link from the sub main navigation.
4. Under Selling Preferences, choose the Instant Payment Notification Preferences option.
5. Select Choose IPN Settings.
6. In the Notification field, paste the IPN page URL that is provided in the Store Manager.
7. Select the "Receive IPN messages" checkbox.
8. Click Save.
