Site Problems with PayPal, Options and Buttons

For kareprints.com, many users are now not able to purchase prints.   The amounts in the pull down menus for various sizes of prints were from the PayPal buttons - and those amounts do include $ for the option field.    Can someone help with troubleshooting why things are no longer working?   You can click on a print, choose a size and the see what PayPal does.  Thank you.   One user in the community mentioned having to turn off inventory - is this true?

If you are sending a currency symbol or a comma in the "amount" value, the code will fail.   For example, if the amount value is $5,000.00, the code will fail however, if the value is 5000.00, it will work.

I tested a couple of the buttons and it looks like they are passing extra, blank variables. e.g. &on1= &os1= 

 

Since this looks to be a hosted button, you would need to modify the buttons within the PayPal account to remove those variables.

Thank you; I removed the two hidden variables and on the test print (MOSCOW) it's working.

 

Darn, have to slog through all of the buttons which used to have " for inches and that seemed to also be a problem even tho I was using ;quot instead of ".

 

I will let you know if changing the buttons solves this.   Thank you.
