Title: [SOLVED] PayPal errors?
Post by: Lum-chan on July 08, 2008, 10:18:53 AM
It seems like the Donation/Treasury isn't working as told by Falling_Star.

Still can't use the donation option... Lum-chan are you sure your paypal link is correct and working???

It should work as far as I can see. Unfortunate, I can't place a donation at my own account. What kind of errormessage(s) do you get?
Are they from the forum/treasury software or from PayPal itself?

Have you used the option in the lefhand menu of the Treasury option in the Menubar on top?

My account is working Ok when I login to PayPal with now one donation (from the old button on the menu) and I see no error messages.

Any info on errors (with your private info blanked-out) would be most helpful to fix this issue

Well... I did both options... But I wasn't getting error messages... it just asked me to retry... But when I got home it worked perfectly... and I suppose you'll be getting 10€ soon... I hope... XD

Thanks FallinG_StaR,

Your donation is in but is now pending @ paypal. Will be added soon. If everything goes the right way, your Donation is visible in the list after completion and in your personal profile it should show up by now  :)

Looks like the 'problem' is solved... Thanks! Topic closed!

Odd, I haven't changed anything. Maybe you can try again at a later time. Could be a technical problem at Paypal?

i've been trying for the past week and no luck

OK hold on while I'll create another Paypal account to test this. As soon as I get this done, I'll try to make a new donation to see what happens.

At what moment do you het this error on Paypal?
Title: Re: PayPal errors?
Post by: Forgotten_Lum on August 18, 2008, 04:59:24 PM
when i hit the paypal donate button after i've put in the amount and it goes to paypal

Post by: FallinG_StaR on August 19, 2008, 07:01:56 PM
Yes, that was the "error" I was getting... unfortunatly I don't remember how I made it work last time... XD

Oke, I tried to donate €10,00 a few minutes ago. I took the option to donate with my name displayed. All worked well after clicking the Donate button on my site.

Might be a hick-up of the Paypal part for your chosen language @ PayPal. Mine's Dutch and worked flawless.
Did you use the one on top of the menu-bar of the one on the left-hand menu? I used the left-hand menu because that part was added after the donation-part was installed on the website.

Any suggestions or options to test? If the top menu-bar gives the same error, please let me know, so I can test that one too.

TIA.

Forgotten_Lum , if that attempt fails as well, please post a screenshot so I can get this solved with Paypal and the the creator of the mod for PayPal as well. Thanks in advance.

Okay, A new version of The donation section has been released. I'll check it out and will upgrade the current Donation section as soon as possible.

I'll leave this thread open.

Just tried to donate. No success. Same error-page at PayPal that FallinG' and Forgotten' encountered.

Did any little tricks (such as: using "Deutche" as the PayPal language, etc.) work for you two (Forgotten' and FallinG')?
Title: Re: PayPal errors?
Post by: FallinG_StaR on December 29, 2008, 01:09:00 AM
I don't no... but I did try donating... while I wasa logged in to Paypal...

I don't know if that was the trick or not... but whatever... XD

STILL NO SUCCESS ON THE PAY-PAL DONATION PROBLEM. TRIED LOGGIN-IN. TRIED USING BOTH EUROS AND DOLLARS.

ANY SUGGESTIONS, LUM-CHAN?
Title: Re: PayPal errors?
Post by: FallinG_StaR on January 06, 2009, 01:52:22 AM
Send me the money... and i'll see what i can do... XD
Title: Re: PayPal errors?
Post by: sidzero on January 06, 2009, 01:56:31 AM
Or send me the money and I'll pretend I donated it. :)


It'll still go to a noble cause... the "Keep the moths out of Sid's wallet" fund.

I think paypal donations has no problem now... right?
Title: Re: PayPal errors?
Post by: Lum-chan on April 23, 2009, 11:42:28 PM
When the donation page doesn't seem to work, you may need to try again on a later time. From time to time PayPal itself is having some hiccups. As soon as PayPal isn't working correctly, the donation page won't work correctly either.... Just try again at a later time or day...

Edit:
Just checked with PayPal. There are some problems with several country-related parts of PayPal from time to time. As far as I know, they are working on this.

Problem has been fixed @ PayPal.
Donations works as they should do  ;)

I got a (personal) problem with my paypal account and I still havn't fixed it.

I wanted to make a donation but I cannot 'cos' what I just wrote.

Is there another way to support lum-chan.com ?

PS: SORRY, I STILL HAVE NO GOLD COIN TO GIVE  :mrgreen:

Another option is to transfer your donation to my private bank account and then I'll transfer it to the PayPal account of the website. That's the only option I can think of atm... Maybe there are other options but I didn't had time to look into these...
