Paypal Standard

Configuration for 1.4.9

Paypal Standard got a facelift for OpenCart v1.4.9. Multiple statuses, PDT support, better IPN support, debugging.

These are the recommended settings for your paypal account to get the full benefit. Some settings may not exist for certain countries and personal accounts, but follow whatever settings you can:

1. Login to your Paypal account
2. Click on "Profile" (the actual word)
3. Click on "Website Payment Preferences"
AutoReturn = On
Return URL = http://www.mysite.com(this gets overridden anyway so it doesn't matter)
Payment Data Tranfer (PDT) = On (copy Identity Token and paste in OpenCart Paypal configuration area)
Encrypted Website Payments = Off
Paypal Account Optional = On
Contact Telephone Number = Recommended: On (Optional)
Express Checkout Settings (Giropay) = Off
4. Click on "Profile" again (the actual word)
5. Click on "Instant Payment Notification Preferences"
6. Enable IPN messages
7. Notification URL = http://www.mysite.com(this gets overridden anyway so it doesn't matter)

echecks are automatically and properly handled now, but if you really want to block them you can do
1. Login to your Paypal account
2. Click on "Profile" (the actual word)
3. Click on "Payment Receiving Preferences"
4. Check the "Block echecks and German bank transfers" checkbox
