Ambal - this is pretty weak. In your second post in this thread, back from October - you quote an email from Paypal which says:

Quote:
Who will be affected by these changes?

We are starting with handful of merchants using Website Payments Standard. All WPS merchants will be able to use the new checkout by November 1.

We've been waiting for this for a long long time ..... I would hope a patch can be provided much faster than waiting for 4.4.3!!!!

I've created a quick mod that will add line items, taxes, shippings on Paypal side.
The mod patch can be applied via X-Cart admin backend for X-Cart 4.4.2. (Updated)

For other versions it can be easily ported.

Nice one Alex I see in the patch code though it says all items are forced across as "Quantity: 1" - is there no way to get around that?

It would be nice to show the right amount when passed across..

Its just a quick solution, thus I'm afraid no.

PayPal expects individual prices for items, but allows only 2 digits after the decimal point. Thus having quantity passed implies devision of the price by product quantity to pass to PayPal. But due to that limit the total could became wrong e.g. for 2 products $15.77/2 = 7.885 but only 7.88 can be passed as a price for the item...

Default Re: PayPal is launching an advanced payment interface.


the thing is that we were led somehow to do the change for EC first of all and missed the WPS change. (sorry I do not remember all the circumstances, it was several months ago).

Anyway, Alex posted a couple of patches for WPS here and the WPS change is to be included in 4.4.3.

For 4.4.3, please make it an option that we can Enable or Disable, and preferably, have it default to Disabled upon install/upgrade.

I appreciate the effort that xcart may exert to write this mod, and realize that paypal may require certain restrictions that xcart cannot overcome - but - I really can't use this if it may only lead to more confusion for the customer. Inaccurate line-items are worse than a "catch-all invoice item", to me anyway.

Thanks. and I do hope this is all on-topic.

The way around this would be to put the items in the cart at their normal price, then use the "discount_amount_x" field to bring it down to the correct price.

(As I'm assuming this problem would only occur when you had done a buy 1 get one for X offer - otherwise there would be no rounding issue)
