We have received the same email as many, telling us that we need to fix one of our buttons (we only have one, which is a standard hosted "buy now" button, which only posts 3 variables : cmd, hosted_button_id and custom).
However, we couldn't find out what was incorrect. Moreover, the button redirects to the new Hermes page. Shoud we conclude that it will just work fine despite the email warning ?
There is an issue with that button I'm afraid, in the hosted button code there is a variable which needs to be modified:
You need to remove the "amount" from the above as the correct name is "notify_url", Can you amend this in the button factory through the PayPal account.
Thank you @MTS_Ciaran for your fast reply. I don't know why this "amount" keyword has been added there, but it's now fixed !
Sorry for double post:
Thanks a lot for your help,
but I am quite confused, only JP got a warning, and then apparently all was ok, and now is not (only in Chrome it doesn't work).
With this new information you have now, could you please be kind and re-test all the stores? So I would know what and where to fix.
No problem at all.
So based on what I can see myself from the tests I'm unable to see the classic flow, I only get the new checkout flow. But for the example you sent over from the classic flow the variables "country" and "night_phone_b" where causing the issue. The "bad" variable and values caused a timeout during the login page loading and resulted in a fallback to the classic page.
Hm, as you saw in our shop, we don't require those input from user, what would be the easiest way to solve the problem?
can I PM you the variables?
Could you please be so kind to test my sites also?
I am getting the new (hermes) flow on both so I *THINK* I am fine, however I'm not sure WHY PayPal would have emailed me that some buttons need work?
Could you please get back to me on this?
Have a great day,
Looks good, but one little thing.... just remove the "currency" variable from the HTML code. The currency is already being set using the "currency_code" variable so "currency" is not needed as well.
