Error: The API certificate is not valid.

Hey all,

 

I've a PayPal business account, created the API Certificate, with username, password, fingerprint and downloadable API Certificate. I've entered all this information (minus the fingerprint as it doesnt seem to want to ask for that) into Woocommerce paypal checkout configuration. Now it is giving me an error message

 

Error: The API certificate is not valid.

 

I checked the account was verified and thats all good. Even tried renewing the certificate and making sure I deleted the old one. But nothing changed and I still got the error message.

 

Anyone got any ideas what I've done wrong?

 

My last option is to dump the Paypal check out and revert to the Paypal token method.... which I understand is via a button? But would prefer to go with the Paypal checkout if possible as it seems to be more feature rich.

Seems a few of us have this problem but no one knows how to address and fix it? I have searched everywhere and can't find a solution. Will paypal checkout work without it?
