    On payment by credit card we get this error: Invalid configuration.


    I have set the paypal API details and used the check integration button.

    Hi there, 

    The Invalid Configuration message is returned by Paypal.(this information was taken from Paypal's List of API error codes):

    According to their information the error you are receiving is:

    10501  - error code

    Invalid Configuration 

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

    Occurs when the billing agreement is disabled or inactive.

    Hope this helps!
