hi, i need help.

- i have osCMax v2.0.3 (http://www.oscmax.com/forums/../) installed and i set up a sandbox buyer (personal) and seller (business) account under my paypal id.
- i also configured both accounts each with an active credit card, bank account and funding.
- i selected the 'paypal website payments standard' with the following options:
- enable paypal website payments standard = true
- email address = seller account email address set up in the sandbox
- payment zone = florida
- set preparing order status = preparing [paypal standard]
- set paypal acknowledge order status = processing
- gateway server = sandbox
- Transaction Method = Sale
- Page Style = PayPal
- Debug E-Mail Address = myemail real address
- sort order of display = 1
- enable encrypted web payments = false
- your private key = empty
- your public certificate = empty
- paypals public certificate = empty
- your paypal public certificate id = empty
- working directory = empty
- openssl location = /usr/bin/openssl

Is there something I am missing, I go through the checkout and the sandbox window popups up prompting me to login, which i do as the buyer
and then i get the general paypal welcome screen when you log in as a sandbox account user.

I am not familiar with this any help is appreciated. i have a deadline in the next couple days aaaaahhhhh.

wow never mind it appears to work now,
but i have a couple questions for everyone.
if my client sets up a paypal account is there something i have to do other than change the email info in the configuration ?
should i have an ssl certificate ?
any other security issues / setup i should do that is recommended ?

Note you posted in the wrong section, osC instead of 'Max 2.0.

Nope, you're there. :)
Setting up SSL does give customers more confidence in making a purchase though. This could be setup once the site is established and shown to be working.

Refer to the wiki (http://wiki.oscdox.com/oscmax_docs) for security recommendations.
