Problem with PAYPAL PRO
« on: January 27, 2014, 02:46:45 PM »
Can anyone assist me in correcting the following message

The link you have used to enter the PayPal system contains an incorrectly formatted item amount.

I have contacted Paypal, and await an answer. It seems to be  a common fault to do with currency. Has anyone had this problem and if so, did you sort it yourself.
I am a NOVICE I dont have any experience building sites and codes etc, so any information would be great, so I can try and sort it myself.

Thanks

you can try to replace code of paypal pro from v.1.1.8 and check. What currency do you use and what number count after dot? Paypal allow only two. for ex. 4.65

Log into your admin panel, you should see an alert for a message. In that message is the link to install the new version!

You can change this right or
use ftp-access to server for installing package (usually hosting provider sends it via email)

Thanks, I did find this link on the web earlier, and I have downloaded the one you have sent, I  am having a problem uploading this, what do I click on to update AbanteCart, I have unzipped the file, do I now have to go to my ftp, and replace all the files ?

Thanks

No, go into your admin panel and follow these steps.

Extensions>Install Extension (a button on the upper right hand side)>Extension Upload Tab>Browse

Browse for the file you downloaded and upload it.

Now on the extensions tab at the top (in the orange menu) you should see a link to install the extension.

Click on it, follow the steps and you should be up to 1.1.8

You'll need to download the 1.1.8 zip file  here http://sourceforge.net/projects/abantecart/files/abantecart_1.1.8_upgrade_only.tar.gz/download

Then see if your PayPalPro issue clears up.

Gordon, I appriciate your help, and im sorry to be a pain, but I cant get this to work, I have unzipped the files, and found the folder when i browse, but then i need to open every file individually as there is not a single one for doing the upload.
is it something im doing wrong ?

I have 3 text files a GITIGNORE file and public html file folder, it is this one when i click on it it just opens folder after folder, the GITIGNORE file is unrecognised

i don't kno whta version do you have but yuo can do this.
1. Do backup.
2.download 1.1.8 zip and unpack it.
replace your folder public_html/extensions/default_pp_pro by folder from archive. Note! do not clone it! Just replace all files
3. then  clean cache in admin->system->cache and check how your paypal pro ext works

Hello abolabo, I have went into my file manager to replace these files, do I have to replace each and every single folder in the extensions folder, one at a time or is there a quicker way to do this ?
