Payment button link goes to generic error page in Paypal Checkout

Hi everyone,

I run a not-for-profit staff yoga club at the University where I work and I want to use Paypal buttons on our webpage to take club payments.


I have set up a button in Paypal with an inventory limit, generated the code and created buttons with links in my website. The button looks fine and has a live link with the correct product ID in it. However, if I click on the button, instead of the check-out page it takes me to a generic Paypal error page saying "Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later."

I can't understand what I've done wrong.   Can anyone help?


Thank you
