  • Users are not being automatically upgraded after paying through PayPal.com

    Hi guys.

    I've had subscriptions setup for a while now and things have always worked fine.

    I'm now using VB 3.0.6. Because of some e-mail complaints, I checked my PayPal.com account and noticed paying subscribers aren't being upgraded to their new user group.

    Anyone have any word on this?

    Thanks.

    Been working fine for me.

    Does the Test Communications return a good result?

      Paypal cURL Pass Streams Pass NOCHEX cURL Fail Streams Pass
      I don't use NOCHEX so I assume the Fail for cURL doesn't matter. It's always been that way and its always worked.

        Yeah, that doesn't matter unless you're using NOCHEX. Could just be an issue with PayPal. There have been times where there was a (in some cases long) delay between the payment being made, and PayPal contacting the server to tell it about the payment.

          From our experience, this is a cURL issue with PHP and has been addressed here at Jelsoft. Search for cURL. We had a similar problem and then recompiled PHP with cURL enabled and it worked fine with Paypal.

          You can tell in the AdminCP, because, for Paypal, both communications test for Paypal must be OK.

                  version 3.0.7 is out now, why not try that version and see if it fixes it.
                  You should be using this version anyway cause of security issues with older versions

                    Well it was working before I upgraded to 3.06 - I would like to avoid a night of upgading and reinstalling hacks.

                      I have had problems with this in every version since subscriptions were created. The thing is, it works some times, but not others. My monthly subscription people have a very high percentage of failures, and I have grown weary of fixing them manually.

                      I've given up complaining about it for the most part, because all I ever hear is "it works for me."

                      I'm now taking over support for the recurring subscriptions hack which will at least keep my members from having to click every month. I'm also diving into the pay-pal development documents and the subscriptions code to see if I can figure out why in heck it fails so often.

                        This isn't working for me. I've set up a subscription. We changed the settings at PayPal. I see in my access_log on my web server that PayPal is connecting to our board. However the subscription doesn't appear in the list. Is there any way to debug this and track down what paypal.php is doing with the result from PayPal?

                          re: paypal & eCheck...

                          i'm now having a similar problem.. out of the blue. everything's worked for as long as i can remember and now subscriptions aren't being upgraded if paid via eCheck, even thought he payment has cleared. regular subscribers wtih instant funds work, but anything with an eCheck never goes through even after it has cleared on PayPal.

                            We located our problem. It turned out that PayPal was not automatically accepting the payments from users on our board. Once we manually claimed the payments, then the subscription update happened.

                              "manually claimed the payments" .. what do you mean by that?
