Paypal Express - Incorrect Credentials
« on: February 27, 2017, 06:20:37 AM »
Hi all,
Paypal Express is showing an error related to the headers.
Says incorrect api details, but these have been verified by paypal.
Is there a problem with the extension?
Any fixes or suggestions welcome.

Regards

Hi.

In PayPal you have two modes: Test and Live
for each mode used different API credentials

Hi All,

The problem was between the keyboard and the seat.  >:(

The cause of the error was a trailing space on the api username.

The joys of copy and paste  ;D

Thanks for the help, the sandbox hint was really useful

Same issue here, I'm glad you were there before me, I wouldn't have thought of looking for a trailing space in the API Cert. fields.....thanks
