    I have followed all the instructions and set up credit card payments on my jotform.

    However, when I try to submit a test payment via my form I get the following error:

    Details: Transact: TIMESTAMP=2012%2d05%2d15T11%3a25%3a16Z&CORRELATIONID=20147df4f280a&ACK=Failure&VERSION=54%2e0&BUILD=2929894&L_ERRORCODE0=10501&L_SHORTMESSAGE0=Invalid%20Configuration&L_LONGMESSAGE0=This%20transaction%20cannot%20be%20processed%20due%20to%20an%20invalid%20merchant%20configuration%2e&L_SEVERITYCODE0=Error&AMT=1%2e00&CURRENCYCODE=AUD

    Can you confirm if this is a jotform error? Or do you think it is coming from Paypal?

    This problem may be due to some issues with your paypal account.  Here are some things to look into:

    1. Make sure that you have accepted the "PayPal Website Payment Pro" agreement in your PayPal account after you have been approved for PayPal Pro.

    2. If you have accepted the Pro agreement but are still getting this error, PayPal also occasionally acknowledges the agreement and activates Virtual Terminal but somehow misses activating Website Payments Pro itself; if your PayPal "Get Started" summary screen only shows Virtual Terminal and nothing about PayPal Pro, please contact PayPal support to get your Website Payments Pro service activated.
