Issue with the PayPal generated Buy Now button today.

Recommended Posts



I'm doing the php shopping cart tutorial.


I have a issue with the fom to send to paypal.


In the video you have this:


<form action='".PAYPAL_FORM_URL."' method='post'>

<input type='hidden' name='business' values='".PAYPAL_BUSINESS_VALUE."' />

<input type='hidden' name='cmd' values='_cart' />

<input type='hidden' name='upload' values='1 />

<input type='hidden' name='currency_code' values='USD' />

<input type='hidden' name='lc' values='US' />


<input type='image'src='http://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif' name='submit' alt='Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!'>





But when I generate the code, paypal is generating the following:


<form action="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">

<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="HS5DM4A8VZ274">

<input type="image" src="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">

<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">




Then, when I press the Buy Now button, paypal tell me this:

"You have requested an outdated version of PayPal. This error often results from the use of bookmarks."



I think paypal has changed some things. Some idea of ​​the changes?
