I have s2member Pro installed using PayPal Payflow Pro as my payment gateway. I have recurring billing setup with PayPal as well. All my credentials are perfect, everything is setup flawlessly but there is only one error.
I keep getting : Error #36. Transaction failed: Fail to obtain approval for the online transaction.
I have read all the other threads on this matter and after 14 hours of searching I have decided to submit a ticket. I can’t find the answer. PayPal’s support team suggests that s2member is running a method of processing recurring payments that PayPal has not accepted for over 1 year.
On my website, http://www.websiteschool.com/pricing you’ll see the two membership options. If you choose either option and choose to pay with any credit card, everything works perfectly. HOWEVER, if you choose PayPal as your payment method, you get the Error #36. Transaction failed: Fail to obtain approval for the online transaction.
I have verified this has nothing to do with the funding source at all. Everything is perfect. I have also verified I am setup for recurring payments on PayPal, so its not that. I have also verified my SSL certificate and all security is perfect.
I have ALSO visited the thread about this here on the forum, and I installed the Patch located on this thread: http://www.s2member.com/forums/topic/cant-do-recurring-billing-via-paypal-payflow/
That patch did not fix anything. The only error I get is Error #36. Transaction failed: Fail to obtain approval for the online transaction
Thank you so much for your help, I have tried literally 14 hours of other options and I am stumped. I have been building sites for 10 years and I can’t figure this out.
