Basically the message users see when directed through to Paypal is confusing as it sounds as though the transaction is yet to be completed. I asked Paypal about this as advised and got the following response –
“You must pass the parameter “useraction=submit” in the s2Member code for the payment to be submitted and the button should change to Pay Now. See page 28 here ”
So my question back here is can Pro Forms be tweaked in some way so that when used WITHOUT Paypal Pro it sends the required parameter to make it clear that a payment is being completed on Paypal?
