You received a Paypal error message saying “Things don’t appear to be working at the moment”, but you don’t know why. This article will explain why you have this issue and how to proceed.
Why isn't Payments Standard integration processing transactions?
You received the error message “Things don’t appear to be working at the moment” from PayPal:
This error typically occurs for two reasons:
- You have entered your PayPal email address or PayPal Identity Token incorrectly.
- Your Encrypted Website Payments set to ON.
Other reasons can affect your payment transaction. For example, if you are using a plugin for WordPress (like “WooComerce”), you will have this issue because you only need EWP if you use a manual button.
How to solve this issue?
You need to test all available options to identify which ones lead to an error message.
