[TYPO3] Paypal not returning values to Webformat shop

Hi Nancy,

when Paypal returns to the mercant site, the url must contain the
variable 'item_name'. I don't know if the gateway doesn't return this
variable too.
You can try to define a personal return code like this:

50.return =

And then modify the line 165 of the file class.tx_extendedshop_pi.php

$returnPP = t3lib_div::_GP("item_name");


$returnPP = t3lib_div::_GP("paypalpayment");

In this way, when paypal returns, it brings this variable and then the
shop extension can choose the correct page.

I hope this will solve the problem, if not I'm at your disposal for
more help.

> Hi Mauro,

> See the following screenshots for more explanation:

> 1.  A visitor orders a product and adds it to their basket.  In this case,
> it's just $1.00 worth of gift wrapping.

> 2.  Then they proceed to fill in there personal information and choose a
> payment method:
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot2.htm
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot3.htm
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot4.htm

> 3.  Once the visitor pays using PayPal, they are asked to return to the
> merchant site
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot5.htm

> 4.  When they return to the site, they are back at the basket page.  No
> order has been created in the back end, and no email notification from the
> web site has been sent to either the buyer or the merchant.  (The buyer and
> seller do, however, receive notification from PayPal.)
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot6.htm

> The merchant receives a notification that someone purchased something but
> there is no record of the order, which causes much confusion.

> When a visitor uses either of the other two payment methods, (direct deposit
> or cheque) everything works fine.  They are then presented with an Order
> Completed.  See screenshot below for an example.
> http://www.shieldwebdesign.com/screenshot7.htm

> Why is no order created in the TYPO3 backend?
> Which preferences should be set inside of PayPal in order for this to work?
> Which input fields in the HTML template are being used and which ones need
> to stay the same.

> We have followed through the logic in the scripts and find that PayPal
> should be sending something back.  But what?  And what happens at the basket
> at the point of return to make it record the new order in the table?

> I hope this makes more sense.  Thanks again for your help.
