I have setup the Paypal Integration using Method 1 of the hosted Paypal buttons. I tried to follow the instruction to the details but still no sales data are reflected in the affiliate panel. The Paypal code I used for the button is below:
<form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” method=”post”>
<input name=”cmd” value=”_s-xclick” type=”hidden”>
<input name=”hosted_button_id” value=”9048429″ type=”hidden”>
<input src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif” name=”submit” alt=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!” border=”0″ type=”image” width=”122″ height=”47″>
<img alt src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif” border=”0″ width=”1″ height=”1″></p>
I have setup the Advance Variable also as follows:
The auto-redirect feature of Paypal (of the Website Payment Preferences) was also turned off.
However, when I test the button, no sales data are being posted in the affiliates panel.
Can you help me fix this problem?
I need the affiliate program to work soonest.

Please post a link to the page where the PayPal button is.
Did you follow the method explained here for testing?August 26, 2010 at 2:41 am #23674
yes, tested the system as described in the link you gave. The click is being registered in the Affiliate panel – Referrals but the sales and commission are not registered. My other Paypal account almost run out of balance just testing the plugin. Going to the “Thank you” page is okay after I click the “Return to Merchant website”. Our “Thank you” page was created as a page in the WordPress.
What could be the problem?August 26, 2010 at 2:52 am #23675
This is why I asked for a link to the page where you have the PayPal button so I can check it out to see what’s missing

The homepage of http://www.backlinksphilippines.com Checked on the 40Backlinks Paypal BuyNow button. This is the button I used for testing the affiliate software. If testing will turn out okay, I will proceed setting up with the rest of the buttons.August 26, 2010 at 8:13 am #23677
Thank you, the button looks good. One last question. Do you have the “Enable 3rd Party Cart Integration” option checked in the settings menu of the WP Affiliate Platform plugin?August 26, 2010 at 8:31 am #23678
yes, the “Enable 3rd Party Cart Integration” is checked in the settings.August 27, 2010 at 12:48 am #23679IvyMember

Hi, Resent to your forum email address.August 29, 2010 at 5:06 am #23682
It turned out that you specified the “%” sign in the commission amount. Please only use the number in that field (no need to include the sign).
