    Paypal unable to decrypt certificate id

    This was already raised as a thread back in 2011 but doesn't seem to have a solution:

    I'm having this exact same issue and Paypal are basically saying "check with uCommerce" which isn't particularly helpful!

    • I have recreated the certificates using openSSL a number of times
    • I haven't copied and pasted the lines to create these, I have typed them
    • I have tried with sandbox mode True and False, no difference
    Any help will be much appreciated

    Seems that the certificate downloaded from Paypal was named incorrectly in the PayPal.Config file

    Such a simple thing - wish PayPal had more descriptive error handling

    I had the same error.

    After reading this post it occurred to me to change the publicPayPalCertificatePath setting to the paypal certificate file downloaded from paypal. The file name is paypal_cert_pem.txt.

    After this I got redirected to the paypal payment page.


    Hope it helps.
