    This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration. 

    It was noted in that this Occurs when the billing agreement is disabled or inactive.

    Base on Paypal Error Codes, that problem occurs when the billing agreement is disabled or inactive. Or, when you have not agreed to the billing agreement.

    Please make sure that you have enabled and agreed to the billing agreement option under PayPal account.

    In either case you will want to contact PayPal and ensure that your account is set up to process Website Payments Pro transactions and that the billing agreement is accepted. You can also search PayPal’s forums for information specific to this error code.

    If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us. Thanks!
