I seem to be having a few CT1 sites that use PayPal Standard as their payment gateway getting order notification emails that contain blank bodies. I know that this has been fixed for CT2 and that it’s not likely to be backported to CT1 but do you know if the same problem affects PayPal Express Checkout?
I need to change to using PayPal Express on a site running 0.9438 which doesn’t have that gateway installed. To enable Express support, is it just a case of uploading the gateway file or is there more to it than that? Because I’m running a customised version of CT on that site that ties in with event registrations.
Hi Chris, I’d forgotten about this one but where did you get up to with it? Because I’ve just heard back from another site running CT1 that also changed to PayPal Express and they’re still having the same problem too.
1. You still had the hard coded value set for PayPal Standard. I changed it to using Express.
2. You were calling the wrong weblog in your email template. I took the template out, and put it in a standard EE template to test (much quicker, easier that way) and it was obvious that the channel was wrong once I did that. I changed the notification from event_registration to “orders” and not it looks like it works.
You may want to test some more, but the second issue was the biggest issue.
Oh yeah, I’d forgotten that things had been changed around with regards orders, purchased items and event registrations. Too much going on with this site. :/ Can you let me know where I had PayPal Standard hard-coded though?
In the option to change the payment. There were 2 options. One was set to paypal standard, rather than express. The easiest way to tell… is to delete that paypal standard gateway. At that point, you’ll get a really obvious error if the system tries to use it.
