I have just installed the eStore plugin and all seems to be working fine, except that when a visitor clicks the “Checkout with Paypal” button, it redirects to the dutch paypal page and not an english one.
I am based in Holland, but most of my visitors will be from outside holland, the UK and the US. I have done some test runs and I get to the dutch paypal page. That’s ok, but I have had two people test from the UK and Ghana and they also are redirected to the dutch Paypal page.
I read a couple of posts here that the redirection should go to the language of the visitor, but in this case it is not.
Do I need to change something in the code somewhere? In the link, it shows up as:
https://www.paypal.com/nl/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd= etc. I can get the english page by changing the “nl” to “en”, but i couldn’t ask my visitors to do that each time.
Thanks a lot for any help on this.

What do you have for “Shopping Cart Language?”November 30, 2010 at 1:16 am #26890amin007Participant
There are a few factors that determines this. The plugin always redirects to the original PayPal site (www.paypal.com) but your (seller) PayPal account determines which PayPal site your visitor will be redirected to. In your PayPal profile you should be able to specify which PayPal site it should go to.
This post has more info for you and code modification to force PayPal to use a certain language:November 30, 2010 at 12:57 pm #26891
Thanks very much for the responses. My cart language is in English. Amin, I tried the code addition in the post you mentioned and it works. Only difference is that with US, it goes to the old Paypal signin/payment page and not the new one, but that is fine. I prefer the english page.

Glad to hear that it worked.
“it goes to the old Paypal signin/payment page and not the new one” – This is something PayPal is testing so when you are going to get the new checkout is not always guaranteed. Let PayPal do its thing and know that the payment will be processed properlyDecember 1, 2010 at 7:08 am #26893
“Let Paypal do its thing…”. Will do….November 13, 2011 at 7:10 pm #26894
How do I set paypal to show in russian language. That customer can only enter their cc info and make a purchase without need to create paypal account.
Thank youNovember 13, 2011 at 10:19 pm #26895PeterMember
You can set your language encoding to Russian in your PayPal profile.
Simply log into your PayPal account and go to the “Profile” section and choose “My selling Tools” and then click on the “Paypal Button language encoding” link. In here you can set the language encoding to your preferred setting.
(Note: PayPal quite often changes their menu structure and the above may be slightly different for you but you should still be able to find this configuration item by looking in the PayPal help page)
Regarding the payment by credit card: People can use their credit/debit cards to pay without creating a PayPal account. There is nothing you need to configure for this because when people are initially taken to the PayPal page after they click on the “Buy Now” or “Checkout” button they will be presented with a choice of either paying by credit card or logging into their PayPal account (you will need to have a premier or business PayPal account)November 14, 2011 at 11:06 am #26896
I did that change but still I get paypal page in english instead of russian. What do I do wrong?November 15, 2011 at 12:05 am #26897adminKeymaster
When the customer lands on the PayPal checkout page, PayPal is suppose to redirect to the correct language version based on the preference you have in your profile. What URL value do you see when you land on PayPal? Is it “.com.us” or your country’s PayPal URL?November 15, 2011 at 12:21 pm #26898
I can see paypal.com/cz probably because I am in Czech Republic but my clients will be in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine etc. so I need the paypal page always appear in russian. Is there any way how to force it to show in russian? thank youNovember 15, 2011 at 10:32 pm #26899adminKeymaster
Do the following to set the language to English by force (you can use this same technique to set other language also):
Open the “eStore_advanced_configs.php” file and search for the following line of code:
Once you find it, change it to the following:
That should force the language of the PayPal page to English
This page has a full list of usable country/region codes:
Save and upload the file and it should show the language you specified here (in this case US English).April 24, 2015 at 5:26 pm #26900bertrand kervellaMember
Any idea about which code to put for the French language?
I followed your instruction and I put :
but it didn’t work.
I’ve also tried:
but also didn’t work
I went to the site : [https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_nvp_country_codes] but didn’t find any info about the language code.

@bertrand, It’s FR for France. Did you upload the file to your server via FTP?
Also, read the admins reply just above yours and do that (instead of what you did).
