This message coming up on one of my websites (http://www.stevenheyen.com/paintings_for_sale.htm)

I have no errors associated with advice sheet. I have another website that uses the same format, but no error message. I don't get a $ value in my code, just a transaction apha numeric in caps.

 

Can you help?

There were some changes that had been made to the PayPal Standard Checkout, which are related to receiving the error message "things don't appear to be working at the moment."

Here are some of the top reasons for the error message,

  • Currency symbols $ in the amount field
  • Quotation marks in drop down menus or description field, example sizes 10" x 10"
  • Incorrect formatting of any of the variables
  • Passing too many characters in the item name field: max Character length: 127
  • Using a deprecated variable

The below link has additional information on the top reasons for this error message:
