    Getting the redirect to PayPal work.

    Hi there, I'm pretty new to Tea. I had a friend creating an example website that includes the entire step-by-step and finally redirection to PayPal to finalize and check out the cart.

    The point was that I was about to build my own page (so that I also got to learn something) and basically use his website example as a baseline and go-to site if I needed help.

    I'm almost there. Infact I couldn't be any closer now - but I cannot figure out how to create the final confirm button that will redirect you to PayPal.

    I know it's all about the @Html.Raw(TC.GeneratePaymentForm() but when page is rendered the HTML-form is pretty much not as expected.

    My complete GeneratePaymentForm()-code goes as:

    @Html.Raw(TC.GeneratePaymentForm(store.Id, "<input type=\"submit\" class=\"btn btn-primary btn-block btn-xlg\" name=\"checkout-place-order\" id=\"checkout-place-order\" value=\"Place order\" data-value=\"Place order\">"))
    

    Am I doing it right? I get:

    <form action="" method="post">
    <input id="cmd" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" type="hidden">
    <input id="encrypted" name="encrypted" value="" type="hidden">
    <input class="btn btn-primary btn-block btn-xlg" name="checkout-place-order" id="checkout-place-order" value="Place order" data-value="Place order" type="submit">
    </form>
    

    ... but was expecting (from my friends go-to page):

    <form action="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
    <input id="cmd" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" type="hidden"><input id="encrypted" name="encrypted" value="-----BEGIN PKCS7-----MIIJ2wYJBmD 
    [TRUNCATED]
    ==-----END PKCS7-----" type="hidden"><button type="submit" class="btn btn-success pull-right">Confirm and pay</button>
    </form>
    

    ...which is what my friends GeneratePaymentForm() returns.

    So my questions are:

    • What does it take to get GeneratePaymentForm() to render the correct HTML?
    • I've been looking into the umbraco log in the db but there's really nothing to look at. Last entry was 14 days ago - probably last time I had a look at this but no log entries regarding Tea. Just publish and save-entries. Should I be looking elsewhere?

    • I've setup the PayPal payment provider data exactly as my friends baseline page with exact same values.

    I've debugged during runtime and I can see that the order object is loaded with correct data like payment, delivery address, name, etc. Nothing is left out.

    Can anyone guide me into some sort of direction?

    PayPal can be hard to work with. Have you checked out the step by step guide: https://docs.teacommerce.net/v3.0.0/docs/paypal

    Hi Rune, And thanks for answering. Yeah! I've been through that guide. I've even copied settings from my friends umbraco website to my dev-site, yet no cigar, although his demo umbraco works very well with redirection to paypal. My friends umbraco site is running online so it's out there for everyone - but not using SSL or anything fancy. I don't know if that makes a difference but my dev site is running localhost.

    So to begin with I am very curious about how the HTML-form is generated in Tea. Is it only rendered correctly if the settings in the 'Payment provider' tab is 100% correct (like login, password, signature etc)? or am I missing another step? If so I can sort of rely on that my settings are not correct even though I copied them.

    Ah. I think your site must be online to be able to run a payment all the way through.

    Paypal cannot call your local domain.

    Hi Rune, Sorry for not replying. I've had a small vacation. Anyways: the demo site (the online template my friend made) I've been using works very well, and I just managed to put my to be site online (so it's not running localhost anymore). Nothing really changed though. The <form> is still the same as before stated. I've checked settings in Tea > Stores > [my store] > Settings > Payment methods > PayPal, and they all match up with the working demo site.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Peter,

    Can you describe the steps to the problem and when and how it fails? Maybe ask your friend how it should work :) Your version is clearly missing something if it does not work.
