I am trying to setup a SwipeStripe cart with PayPal and am having a nightmare of a time. I am using SS3.1, SwipeStripe 2.1, Payment Module 1.0 & the Payment-PayPal module.

I've got everything to get so far as to redirect me to PayPal with the amount for payment. From the PayPal screen if I either try to make payment or click Cancel I get the error:

Action 'complete' isn't allowed on class PayPalProcessor_Express.

Any ideas would be much appreciated! I'm still quite new to SilverStripe.

Hi Andrew,
Sorry for the inconvenience on this one, the latest versions of SilverStripe require allowed_actions to be defined and I think this is probably the issue. I've made a quick patch which adds allowed_actions to PayPalProcessor_Express (and changes files to use hard tabs):

Can you please try this and hopefully it fixes the issue for you. Testing payments with PayPal can be a bit fiddly in any case, here is a bit of a guide that might help (although it is a little dated now).

Hope that helps!
