Hi Folks.

A number of online membership payments have been made which displayed a blank screen instead of showing a receipt when returning to the FOPS website from PayPal.

This was caused by a minor coding error (oops, sorry) and has now been corrected, so the receipt page is now shown.

However, you must allow PayPal to return you to the FOPS website after payment has been made in order to receive the receipt.

Even though the receipt was not being displayed, all member payments received so far have been correctly entered into FOPS records, as they are handled by a separate process.

Hi Folks.

Well, that was embarassing, I fixed the bug in the receipt code and promptly introduced another one!

PayPal require some updates to the code which exchanges payment information, so I rewrote it, ran a test on the PayPal test facility (the PayPal "Sandbox") and everything worked as it should. So I substituted the old code for the new...and it failed, issuing FOPS members with the message

PDT Failed
There was an error. PayPal indicated that the Payment Delivery Transfer has failed. If this message is displayed after a PayPal payment has been made it does not necessarily indicate that your payment was not received by the FOPS.


As the message says, your payment has been processed correctly and entered into the ledger, but you didn't receive a receipt from the FOPS website.

I have temporarily restored the old version while I run tests on the new code :doh2:

Sorry about that, I will post updates once I fix it :oops2:

Hi Folks.

I have now updated the PayPal system and run a successful test on a 'live' account and all appears to be working ok :smile2:

Sorry for any inconvenience :oops2:
