Getting code=EWP_SETTINGS error when trying to connect to PayPal

Hi

 

I am getting the following error https://www.paypal.com/webapps/shoppingcart/error?flowlogging_id=7645545e91ba4&code=EWP_SETTINGS when I try to connect to PayPal from my Wordpress Woocommerce site. I have no idea what this means and cannot find any help connected with it on WooCommerce, Wordpress or PayPal. I assume I have set something up incorrectly or have missed something but I don't know what. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Getting code=EWP_SETTINGS error when trying to connect to PayPal

Hi,

 

I had the same problem on my woocommerce-paypal website. Deactivating the "‘Block Non-encrypted Website Payment" worked for me but what concerns me is that my website is fully in HTTPS (and supports TLS 1.2) so i do not understand why when activating this feature (in order to gain more security for my clients) nothing works. Now i'm not sure that the link between my store and paypal is secure.

 

@MTS_Jennifer could you elaborate in more details this solution ? Is it Safe to use?

 

Best regards,

 

Yves

I believe the problem is in the PayPal configuration. You need to allow un-encrypted websites to make payments to paypal. In order to do so, login to your PayPal account then:

Profile & Settings --> My Selling Tools --> Website Preferences

Go down to the section "Encrypted Website Payments" and select "off" to the "Block Non-encrypted Website Payment:"

This should make it working! Good luck

I have turned off the "Block Non-encrypted Website Payment:" setting and I am still getting this error when trying to set up WooCommerce. I've installed WordPress and WooCommerce on two different servers and can't seem to solve this issue. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated!

@MTS_Jennifer:

some time has passed and i still would like to know why i have to turn off a security feature even when all the requirements are met (as stated by @Antigravity)

I tried this but it's still not working - does the currency not also have something to do with this?

Re: Getting code=EWP_SETTINGS error when trying to connect to PayPal

I have exactly the same problem... and the solution about disconnecting the Encrypted Feature worked for me.
Now, I´m also concerned about the security with the transactions, since my website is fyully in HTTPS but I have to disconnect the Encrypted transactions to sell
