    How to encrypt Paypal form on submission?

    Asked by guest_23092666835057 on November 06, 2012 at 11:51 AM

    Hello,

    I have checked the "Secure Form" in my form that I have created before copying the code to my website, but when I use my form and use the Submit button, Paypal gives the error:

    The seller accepts encrypted website payments only. You cannot pay the seller through un-encrypted buttons. Please contact your seller for more details.

    Why is this error occuring and how can I enable encryption on the submit button (on the Paypal form) to allow the transaction to go through?

    Thanks,

    Eunice

    Hi Eunice,

    That error occurs because you are enabling your PayPal Encrypted Website Payments Feature. You have to turn that off by following guide below;

    1. Log in to your PayPal account.

    2. Click Profile.

    3. From the Selling Preferences column, click Website Payment Preferences.

    4. In the Encrypted Website Payments section, select Off.

    5. Click Save.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you Welvin, 

    Well, I am awared of that - that i can turn off the encrypted function on my paypal account.

    However, I would like my form to be encrypted while being sent to Paypal for payment processing.

    So, do you know how to fix this ?

    Hi, 

    Any form can be submitted with SSL encryption

    So, use https:// in your form to have it encrypted.

    I noticed though that you might not have registered an account yet? 

    We can support you much better if you have an account username already since using only a 'guest' account is very limiting. Click on this link to create an account.

    Thanks.

    And also to add to my colleague's comment,

    I found a post (by Mliz) with this information that may be of help.  

    I did a little search on this error I found the following post from Paypal community.
    In your Paypal account this option can be turned off:

    1. Log in to your PayPal Account.
    2. Click "Profile" tabe or "Edit Profile" link.
    3. Under "Selling Preferences", select "Website Payment Preferences".
    4. In the section titled "Encrypted Website Payments" select "Off".
    5. Click "Save

    Hi Eunice,

    As far as I know, Encryption is only use for creating HTML buttons from Paypal and you can do this without enabling PayPal Encrypted Website Payments Feature. Please check this link:

    HOW  PAYMENT ENCRYPTION WORKS WITH PAYPAL

    PayPal Encrypted Website Payments Feature is only for extra security base on the guide given.

    You do not need to worry about our payment integrations as we also secured with a 256-bit Godaddy SSL Certificate. Enabling "Secure" embedd options will give security to your customers who are paying for your products using Credit Cards.

    So, I think the best way to solve this issue/case is to turn off your Paypal encryption so you can use Paypal Integration with your form. 

    Thanks and I hope this idea will help.

    Welvin, thanks for your support again! 

    I tried to turn off my papal encryption and my form then is working well and gets redirect to Paypal payment page fine. 

    However, I am still not all pursuaded that that's how I should leave my setting. 

    My friend told me this:

    "Eunice,

    Basically I think he's saying that your website sends it encrypted to
    their website, and then they are sending it encrypted to PayPal.

    Which is fine if that's the way it is. But I believe that the error
    message exists because they are not sending it encrypted to PayPal and the
    fact that they tell you to turn off encryption on the PayPal side
    seems to confirm this."

    Anyway, I think I will leave this matter as it is for now, 

    but I appreciated all you guys' help, really. I will see if I find something new one day.

    Hi Eunice,

    You can still encypt your Paypal Buttons if you really like to do it that way, just please check the link above on how to accomplish such.

    You are quite welcome. I am sorry to mean this solutions, but that's the best way to make the integrations work for you.

    Thank you very much.
