So when trying to capture an authorized payment from a customer that used their Debit/Credit card using PayPal Advanced Payments Magento displays this error:

Field format error: ORIGID missing

This only happens when customers use PayPal Advanced not PayPal Express. I know that the issue is that the Parent Transaction ID is not being taken from the initial transaction for whatever reason. I have debugging enabled and do not see any other errors in system.log that are related to this.

Please help me figure out what the issue might be, thank you.


Turns out that I had set the IPN Address in PayPal and that was causing all the double IPN's. Just be sure to turn that IPN off and capturing online in Magento was a cinch.
