Hello,

Here are the updated instructions for the new Business PayPal Account:

  • Go to your Account Settings in the Top Right.
  • Click Account Settings.
  • Click Website payments on the left.
  • Click Update to the right of "Website preferences".
  • Select Off under "Block Non-encrypted Website Payment".
  • Your changes are automatically saved.

Thank you,

Jennifer

it should now be under new menyu called 'tools' not profile. Except 'website preferences' does not exist as a setting anymore. Cannot find any place within Paypal to change ewp_settings. Its a Paypal messup 100%

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

Solved

Hi Everyone,

The EWP Settings are not designed for anyone using a 3rd Party Shopping Cart. These settings are specific to using a manually created PayPal button and a 3rd party encryption software.

Here are the general details of this setting from the PayPal Developer site:

Thanks,

i dont use a 3rd party cart and have same problem just the same

Problem lies with Paypal who give erroneous answers and are terrible backend programmers, and even worse at frontend design and database integration between the html php and javascript frontend, and python backend. Your assumption of cause is false

Me too and it is 2021 !!! cannot be fixed as ewp settings have disappeared from user interface completely. my shop sold lots of stuff and i never got the money, and lost customers. Paypal is a pile of we know what lately. No way to fix after php 7.3 and php8 is already out!
