I am currently trying to figure out why paypal is not working properly.

I found this error in the logs.

2017-06-22T02:18:31+00:00 DEBUG (7): Array (
[url] => https://api-3t.paypal.com/nvp
[getPalDetails] => Array

        [VERSION] => 94.0
        [BUILD] => 29297572

[__pid] => 7545

It states a success but is recorded as a bug.

What do I do to fix this?

I am using magento and Paypal Website Payments Standard (Includes Express Checkout)

The checkout allows guest checkout.

Enable SSL verification set to No.

  • Does it turn to any PHP exception error pages? Or the flow goes properly? Debug log does NOT always mean the module have bugs.

  • It continues on the flow. But this bugs me. (sorry for the pun)

  • Are you in developer mode? Check the setting on System->Configuration ->Payment Methods (Basic Settings - PayPal Express Checkout)

  • @PYYick I have debug mode active due to my client telling me that Paypal orders are not being registered. I don't know if this is the cause though.

First of all, it's NOT an error.

As you said that the flow is not interrupted, so I'm sure it's just a setting issue. You turned on the debug mode on Paypal so var/log/debug.log keep printing the data from Paypal. If this debug log caused you some annoyances, you can turn it off by System->Configuration ->Payment Methods (Basic Settings - PayPal Express Checkout)->Off.

  • I turned on the logs to see where the error in paypal payments orders not getting registered is being generated. Maybe it is a false flag. I am currently investigating whether it may be due to the chron jobs.

  • Surely not related to CRON job. As I stated before, you're NOT encountering any problems. The debug log generates every time you use Paypal unless you turn off this setting.

  • So I assume I can safely ignore that success debug. I just thought it was related to the paypal orders not being recorded error and if I fixed it then the paypal payment order would record properly.

  • Hurray, you got my point! You can move on to other tasks.
