PayPal-generated Subscribe Button -- Cannot get past Login/Checkout page

[ Edited ]

I have created a page that will allow a customer of mine to accept recurring payments using PayPal's subscription feature. The PayPal-generated code for the Subscription button is on this page:


Clicking the "Subscribe" button takes me to the PayPal-hosted page that summarizes the transaction. However, attempting to login (using my own valid PayPal account) OR credit/debit card link always results in the same error page that states: "The link you have used to enter the PayPal system is invalid. Please review the link and try again."


I am on a short timeline to get this feature working. I hope somebody can help.


Thanks in advance!

Hi quasi888,


Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy


I've reviewed your button code and I'm not seeing the cause for this error.  Everything looks good to me but I was also getting the same error when I tested it.  At this point, I recommend contacting our Merchant Technical Services for assistance. File a ticket with them to see if they can take a deeper look.


You're using a "hosted" button so it could be an issue with some of the variables set in the button creator.


I hope this helps! Smiley Happy
