    Hi Ben,

    Thank you for the comment. I will list the items you should check. If all is ok, and you still can’t make this work, I will kindly ask you to send me a link (wp=admin credentials) to make a test with my paypal account.

    1. Make sure that in the theme you have a page created with the custom template “PayPal Processor”

    2. Make sure that if you set PayPal API to SANDBOX, your API info is for sandbox (test). If you set PayPal API to LIVE, your API is for LIVE URL.

    3. There are 2 sets of API you need to post for membership. Make sure both APIs are created correctly:

    API 1
    Login and create a PayPal Application at this URL Copy the Client ID and Secret Key provided for LIVE URL.


    API2: is chapter 6.5.3 PayPal Membership Packages with Recurring Option (scroll down).

    4. Make sure you PayPal account is set to accept payments automatically (and it’s not set to manually review each payment).

    If you need my help, please email me anytime. I’ll help you set this up asap.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the help Anna. I’m still having trouble setting it up. I double checked everything and it all seems fine. Can I email you my password/login so you can take a look?

    I also ran into another problem. Changing passwords, it seems like that password you get emailed when registering can’t be changed.

    Hi Ben,

    Sure, please email me the details ([email protected])
    The password not changing, that is odd. It does change. I’ll test tomorrow live and send you my comments.

    Thank you

    I’m getting the same error when recurring is selected… Any fix for this??? I’ve also double checked everything…

    Hello everyone,

    We’ve already found the cause of this behavior. It’s related to an update to PayPal API for live URL – recurring only. The fix will be released in the next 24 hours at Theme Forest in v 2.022

    If anyone needs just to have the file that is updated for this fix, please email me at [email protected] (in case the update is not yet approved by the time you see this).

    The file that needs to be replaced is libs/paypalfunctions.php

    Thank you Ben and Mark for all your support!
