View Full Version : I can't get the Paypal option to work
July 12th, 2006, 09:35 AM
When I upload an ad, and tick Yes for Paypal, nothing happens. No "Buy it now" link appears. And then when I go to edit my ad, it says "No" in the box even though I previously changed it to "Yes".
What am I doing wrong? I assume all my users have this problem, as I can't see any "Buy it now" links on their ads.

Have you set payment options in Admin => Edit Usergroups?

If you mean "Alow payment", that is set to Yes.

Have you filled in a paypal email and selected your payment processor as paypal. Basically if payment is set to yes for the usergroup you are apart of it will present the user for payment. Now also there is one other thing not to overlook.
Have you set an amount to charge for ads in Admin => Edit Categories?

I am not charging for ads. It is for people to buy from each other using Paypal.

Okay well when a seller uploads an ad they can mark for it to be bought by selecting yes. If they select yes when someone views that ad there will be a buy link. Now note this is on ads not auctions

But that's the problem Chuck - I select Yes, but "Buy it now" doesn't show. And we don't have auctions, only ads.
