Using PayPal

SurfShop™ comes pre-configured to work with PayPal out-of-the-box. Just leave the defaults and follow the steps below:

STEP 1

In “Check-out options”, select “Use PayPal” as a payment method.

STEP 2

Check your “Global Settings”:

PayPal Email address:you@your-email-address
Cardservice Vendor(s): PayPal
Cardservice domain(s):www.paypal.com *see note, below
Name of transaction result field:status
Value when approved:approved
Value when declined: declined
Name of AVS result field:leave blank
Name of “Reason for Decline” field:leave blank
Name of “Authorization Code” field:leave blank
Name of “Reference Number” field:leave blank
  • Note: If your site is not SSL-enabled, leave the cardservice domain field blank or it will result in an error.

STEP 3

Sign on to your PayPal account at

https://www.paypal.com

Click “Profile”

Click “Instant Payment Notification Preferences”

Click “Edit”

Type the path to forceorder.cgi in the box provided. Example:

http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/surfshop/forceorder.cgi

Check the box labeled, “Instant Payment Notification integrates PayPal payment notification and authentication with your website's back-end operations. Check this box to activate Instant Payment Notification, and enter the URL at which you will receive the payment notifications below. This URL should be a URL which you own and at which you receive HTML posts.”

Click “Save”

You are now PayPal Enabled!

Please note that your web server must have the LWP::UserAgent perl module installed to use PayPal IPN. Contact your Web Host if you have questions.
