I am trying to setup my config file to work with PayPal in the eCommerce Module. (SS 2.2 and latest eCommerce version). The eCommerce documentation says, "To set up a PayPal payment, you need only the mail address of the account." (Does this mean I don't need the define payment code?) I inserted the code provided for setting the e-mail address, but when I upload this file to my server I receive the following message (this is a test install of SS installed at

Fatal error: Call to undefined method PayPalPayment::set_account_email() in /home/content/s/j/b/sjbmaine/html/demo/tutorial/_config.php on line 27

This is the code from my config file. Can anyone point out where I am going wrong?


global $project;
$project = 'tutorial';

global $databaseConfig;
$databaseConfig = array(
	"type" => "MySQLDatabase",
	"server" => "servername",
	"username" => "username",
	"password" => "password",
	"database" => "database",
Email::setAdminEmail('[email protected]');
// Sites running on the following servers will be
// run in development mode. See
// for a description of what dev mode does.

// Check if the site is in 'live' mode, use the live credentials.
// otherwise, use test credentials instead to be careful.
if(Director::isLive()) {
	PayPalPayment::set_account_email('[email protected]');
} else {
	PayPalPayment::set_test_mode('[email protected]');


Thank you!

I have no experience with the ecommerce module, haven't had to use it yet, but there is a good topic here about getting everything up and running. Maybe it can be of some help?
