    I have a paypal pro account ( I think)... I did the Test configuration when I set up the payment wizard and that totally worked.

    But now if someone uses the form, for either the credit card or paypal it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

    I have tried filling up your form and I was able to continue to the login page of paypal.  When I tried testing your credit card payment it returned "This transaction cannot be processed due to an invalid merchant configuration."

    This means you still need to configure your paypal and accept the merchant agreement in your account.

    The list of paypal API errors are found here: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_nvp_errorcodes


    Invalid Configuration

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

    Occurs when you have not agreed to the billing agreement.

    Hope this helps.
