How do.... I've merged your question into this thread for the March 29th Update.
Can you send over a link to the commissions website where I can test the button? I would suspect that if this is a site thats built by someone else like you mentioned, the error would be within their code. But I can check where the error is coming if you send me over the link 🙂
I had been promoting the site Easy Traffic boost with link http://easytrafficboost.com/brandedsplash2.php?r=milinnd
When i click the Paypal button in this site it is leading to this check out page: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/hermes?token=2NG96963SK863724P&useraction=commit&mfid=1485362809249_1...
Are these links enough to check out the error or i can ask my downline in this site to mail me the link of his Paypals check out page which would have my id incorporated in the PayPal button he clicks.
Thanks, so based on the logs, the account for the transaction/redirect link you posted is fine, there are no major issues that I can see that would cause an issue post March 29th changes.
Hello MTS_Ciaran, Thank you for the support you are providing on this forum. I have done a fair amount of testing and have not been able to reporduce the issue. It appears to be bringing up the new page each time. Would it be possible to check the logs to see if there are any fallbacks? Dates or item numbers could be helpful. Thank you.
I checked the logs and found a fair few examples, here's one from the 24th Jan, they all seem to be related to the same problem though, the "$" symbol in the amount value being passed over to us.
item_name=Florida Cosmetology Theory and Clinical Exam Preparation
Hello @MTS_Ciaran -- we've been getting the message:
"Important: Action Required
Your business may be unable to continue processing payments with PayPal Payments Standard (also called Website Payments Standard or HTML buttons) because you haven’t made a required update to your integration.
Your integration is passing invalid or incorrect date to PayPal in one or more of your payment buttons. To ensure you can continued processing payments, please update your integration by March 28, 2017."
only at the top of our PayPal account page when we log in to PayPal. I've tested our payment page and it is going to the new PayPal checkout as per https://www.paypal-knowledge.com/infocenter/index?page=content&id=FAQ2067
We don't pass any date info at all in our solution. Can you see logs indicating what the system is complaining about?
Ive gone through the logs and found one from the 7th January, the issue with this one was that the amount valie included a comma e.g. amount=1,188.70
The comma will trigger an issue post the March 29th deadline. only numerical and decimal values will be allowed.
Thank you. I was using a decimalformat (that includes comma thousands separators) instead of a numberformat (that doesn't use commas). I have updated our code.
