Hello everyone!

 

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I actually worked yesterday, but it was nice to get a parking spot relatively close to the door! Smiley Happy

Hi everyone,

 

Happy Tuesday!

 

According to this site, today is National Chocolate Mint Day.  One of the best candy/dessert combinations to have ever been created!

Has anyone else noticed that www.sandbox.paypal.com/home is not working right now?

 

I've been trying to do some development today and now I cant access my mock accounts.

Hi TysonBrooks!

 

Welcome to the Community Chat! Smiley Happy

 

I was just able to log into my sandbox account, so it appears to be up and running. One thing that might've changed since the last time you used it: When you select your test account, it no longer auto-fills with the email address for the test account. Your developer login email auto-fills, so you need to remove that and then fill in the test email.

 

As an example, if your developer email is abc@abc.com, and your test account login is xyz@abc.com, the system is defaulting to abc@abc.com and needs to be changed.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi.  I'm new to this so apologise if I'm not supposed to post here.  I'm trying to put a button on my website so I can accept paypal payments.  Made the button, posted it on and it looked great - simple button, drop down list of prices.  When I clicked on it as if to pay, it allowed me to choose a price, but when I clicked enter, the whole lot disappeared and just stayed on my page, and I can't understand why.

 

this is the html code and I'm wondering if you can see what's wrong, because it seems to be wrong.  Thank you for any help you can offer.

Hi Josilou -

 

Thank you for posting in the Community Chat! Sadly, your post came in towards the end of our open period and we weren't able to get out a response to you in time. Smiley Sad

 

I took the liberty of running your button coding through an HTML test bed and selected each of the options.  In each instance, the button coding provided above worked flawlessly and displayed the pricing correctly.  When I clicked to pay, I was properly routed to the option to either log into my PayPal account or enter my card information.  With both of these options, checkout proceeded as intended.

 

Since we've ruled out any issues on the PayPal side of things or with the button coding above, this could be an issue with your browser (typically clearing cache and cookies will resolve this) or an issue with other coding on the same webpage.  It's also possible your web publisher could be corrupting the code when publishing it, so you'll also want to examine the final published HTML.
