keeping track of payments at pay pal accounts. Sometimes customers on my store don,t complete the checkout process. They end up paying on pay pal but the order is not registered on my store. I have to contact the customer using the shipping info on pay pal.
I've followed the development of the ecommerce from the time you started updating.
I've seen the new payment_paypal express and have my api, I'm getting a touch lost with where to put everything to get the paypal to work. I have previously just used -
but things have moved on in your newest code and this seems not to work any more and it 'hangs' at the redirection to paypal stage.
Would you be able to provide a short guide of where to put the final pieces, as my test shop has been working nicely, but would like to continue to test all the latest additions, fixes and patches?

I followed the readme, added the info to mysite/_config.php and have paypal sandbox accounts setup (and am logged in to sandbox), but I still am never redirected past the paypal logo and progress bar. Is there a certain version of ecommerce, payment, payment_paypal etc. I'm supposed to be using for this to work? Is the payment-test module supposed to be installed? Am i supposed to use a specific email address on the checkout page to coincide with the sandbox accounts, or should I be prompted for sandbox login credentials after being redirected (can't tell cause i'm not getting that far).
Originally I was under the impression the payment_paypal module was an addon/enhancement/fix to the already existing paypal payment, so that's where I was going wrong. Really its just a different paypal payment so it needs to be added as as such in mysite/_config.php like so:
'PayPalPayment' => 'Paypal Payment', //old paypal payment
'PayPalExpressCheckoutPayment' => 'Paypal Express Checkout' //new paypal payment module -- needs to be included
Maybe it's just cause I'm brand new to ecommerce/payment, but shouldnt that probably be mentioned in the readme?
