    Additionally to what Mike_T has stated, I have checked your forms , and two of them have correctly integrated the Paypal Pro API username and password /SIGNATURE

    However, your form ID  22395767780972  (QUICK PAYMENT FORM) doesn't have this information .

    At any rate , make sure the 3 forms have the correct API/SIGNATURE information and that the biling agreement is enabled and agreed

    I'm having the same issue with the "

    This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration." error message. When choosing the paypal link, I can process payments just fine. However, when using the credit card option, I'm given the error message. Any help you can provide is appreciated.
