    This is actually an known common problem because of an Invalid Configuration being used for your PayPal Payment Integration between it and your physical PayPal Account. Have you accepted PayPal's Billing Agreement and any other PayPal ToS? You may want to check this now if not.

    You can refer to PayPal's Error Code List for a better understanding as to the exact error and as to a reason of why.


    As the Error States:

     Transact: TIMESTAMP=2013%2d12%2d30T16%3a34%3a53Z&CORRELATIONID=2ffcc1cbd23ee&ACK=
