I was just wondering how I stop the paypal page appearing in german. I am just testing out the plugin for my wife’s site [www.simplymemzelle.com/test1]
I would really like to use this plugin, but it is a big problem since I am not targeting germany,

When the eStore sends a customer to Paypal, Paypal will show the version of Paypal that is specified in the buyers profile. If there is no setting then it should show the default Paypal site (US).
With that said I did a test purchase and got this error “Dieser Empfänger ist zurzeit nicht in der Lage, Geld zu empfangen.” Unfortunately I do not know German can you please translate this for me so I can troubleshoot this a little more?

It basically means that the merchant is not able to receive money. I was wondering if it ha anything to do with the fact I have not put my Paypal information in there yet, what do you think?
I don’t want to go building out the rest of the site if this won’t work.

If you have not told the plugin where to send the money it will not go to Paypal and the plugin will not work. You need to specify your Paypal email address in the settings of the plugin. Please do this and let me know how it goes.

I have the same problem. I am in Germany but my customers are English-speaking. I want the PayPal page to come up in English, but it’s coming up in German. The link inside the cartscript is this:
but the result is:
This redirect happens regardless of which language the user has specified in the buyer’s profile.
Does anyone know the fix for this?

Hi Alan, Can you please send me a link to your site so I can have a look at this?

Hi Alan, PayPal usually takes the customer to the language they have specified in there settings. When I go to your page and check out, I get the US PayPal site (I have specified this as I am in Australia). If the customer is not a PayPal member then it should give them the US PayPal by default. Try clearing your Cookies and see if it redirect you to the proper page.
Let me know how it goes.

Thanks, Ivy. The status is that the problem has mysteriously fixed itself. I get the US PayPal site, which is what i want. A week ago this was not the case. Maybe someone at WordPress or PayPal fixed it without telling me, because i wrote to them also. Anyway, i’m happy.May 15, 2010 at 12:11 am #18752
I am glad it is working for you. Please let us know if you need anything else.

I would like my paypal checkout page to default to the UK as this is where our buyers are situated. Funnily enough when we first set up the account, the page did do this but now it defaults to the US page. It just means that our users then have to choose the UK from the pull-down menu.
Do you know how I could set it so that the UK appears as the default in the paypal checkout page?
Thank you.June 14, 2010 at 2:26 pm #18754

Thanks for your reply Ivy. I have checked the language settings in my browser and it is UK en. However, it still takes me to the US paypal page even though we a uk paypal email address. It’s not the end of the world but it would be nice to open the paypal page at the UK setting and to be able to overide the default setting.June 15, 2010 at 3:18 am #18756amin007Participant
Okay I made it so it goes to paypal.com which should automatically resolve to your local one based on your account settings. Please download the new version from this page and try it out:
Let me know if it solves the issue.June 17, 2010 at 2:48 pm #18757
I did change the form address to “<form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” but it still wants to default to the US page settings. I will look into this as it’s a bit strange. We have another stand alone donate button generated through PayPal code and it defaults to the UK page and has the same form address as above. Sure it’s something simple.
