Hi guys :-)

I’m currently setting up the paypal payment system for swfpress, and I’ve run into a bit of trouble. When my website transfers the user over to paypal, where it says cancel and return to merchant website, it has my email address displayed instead of the name of what I would like displayed there, SwfPress. I’ve looked in all the settings and couldn’t find out how to do it anywhere, I’m probably missing something very obvious here. Is anyone able to direct me to what I’m supposed to do to input that information.

Hope that’s clear enough :-)

Cheers.
Sam

Hi there Sam. :)
I don’t know what kind of account you have but I think you need a business or premium one to be able to do that (you can have more than one email address though and display something like payment@swfpress.org instead of your personal email address).
Anyhow, from a premium account you can go to Profile -> Custom Payment Pages and add your own header image (instead of email), a logo and change a couple of colours.

You need to use the paypal IPN – you can then set up the URL ’s and any data you wish to be sent when the user either completes a payment OR cancels a payment.

@theninja: I already have a premium account and custom header image and colors, but thanks for the suggestion about using an email like payments [at] swfpress.org, that’s what I’ll do for a worst case scenario :-)

@CreativeAddiction: I’ll try your suggestion when I get the chance :-)
