I would like to accept Paypal pro credit card orders, and Paypal payments.
The problem is that Paypal Express which is enabled by default with Pro, redirects the customer before they complete the Magento checkout process, which on my site includes further data capture.
I have followed the points here: Enable Paypal Pro & Standard in Magento 1.7
This does indeed work for the front end, unfortunately in the back end Magento shows orders as pending payment, even when they are paid. I'm guessing this is because Paypal Standard isn't actually active in the back end, anyone know how I can activate it?
