BAD_INPUT_ERROR - Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later.

Hello everyone,

 

From this morning (12/09/2017) I've started having problems with a paypal button that has been working for almost 10 years.

 

this is the code:

 

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="action_url" value="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="xxxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="image_url" value="xxx">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="xxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="xxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="xxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="rm" value="2">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="ES">
<input type="hidden" name="cbt" value="PINCHA AQUI PARA COMPLETAR LA RESERVA">
<input type="hidden" name="charset" value="utf-8">
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="xxxxx xxxxxx"
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="xxxxx xxx">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="100">
<input type="hidden" name="invoice" value="invoice_xxxxxx_xxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="first_name" value="xxxxx">
<input type="hidden" name="last_name" value="xxxx">
<input type="submit" name="book" value="RESERVE NOW" class="book"> </form>

I've already tried everything but I can't really figure out what is the problem.

 

If I remove the "item_name", it works however the system requires to the customer to fill upthe item name and this is something that I don't want to happen.

 

Anyone that can help me?

 

(I can't see any spaces in the wrong places, any missing variables, etc. the button hasn't been updated since at least 2012 however I don't see any problem)

 

thanks

Same here,

I am having same issue.  Payments for this site have been working for years.  Suddenly started getting this error (BAD_INPUT_ERROR - Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later.) a little after 5pm (PDT) 11 Sept 2017.

 

I've had many payments fail, but a couple have succeeded, so it's not 100%.

I have a Virtumart store. I could get through the error by doing the modification posted in this thread, but I still have issues:

https://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=137210.0

 

If push item_name_1 instead of item_name to Paypal, I get through the error but the description for the item is empty and needs to be entered by the user. 

 

 

Still working on it.

That solution appears to be working for me as well.  Not ideal, but at least I can start collecting again!

Hi all, 

 

We're working on this on our at the moment, the issue is related to the image URL as a temporary workaround you can try removing it from the button code and the payment flow should work
