If you set your Merchant Country to Germany the payment method Paypal Website Payments Standard is hidden in Magento ce-1.9.

Does anyone know why?

Some people say it's old and should not be used. But it is still advertised on Magento Paypal page. Anyway if it's so old to be used why only Germany?

I´ve got the same problem. It´s a simple bug (my view).

  1. Open up the tabs Merchant Location and PayPal Payment Solution in Payment Methods.
  2. Change your location to Austria -> PayPal Standard appears. Save this configuration.
  3. After that configure or set PayPal standard to yes/active -> save.
  4. Change your location to Germany -> save.

Here we go: PayPal Standard for Germany!
