    Hi,

    I'm still using the 3x version of amember and want to start using paypal. Which option should I use on their page?

    There are 3 options:
    Website payments standard, paying by email and express checkout. My guess is "Express Checkout", but I need confirmation before upgrading my account.

    Thanks in advance.

    I use website payment standard (set for a business account)- you need to then upgrade to premiere to do subscriptions.

    @David: Thanks a lot for your reply. And in amember admin which option did you choose? Are there any options at all I need to change in the Admin?

    Thanks again for your help.

    I am using one PayPal account for 2 different aMember sites.
    As Instant Payment Notification only allows a single domain to be registered, what is the effect of having a different aMember installation as the address in IPN?

    In 3.x you can forward the IPN, in paypal settings: "Resend Postback"
    You can then put in the URL of the 2nd amember site.
    Another option is to use an IPN splitter php script.

    In 4.x this has been removed- think its needed so I'll put in a feaure request.

    Thanks Alexander for your reply.

    Just one final question:
    I'm using the register page in an iframe so it would look like the rest of the website, but it seems that PayPal doesn't allow the use of iFrame anymore.

    Anything I can do about it? Or do I have to edit the signup.php page to look just like the rest of my website. I'm afraid I have to change all the CSS if I do that.

    Thanks for your help again.

    Yes paypal do not allow to display their payment pages within a frame.
    You need to get rid of frames for aMember pages, or edit signup.html template and change signup form target to "top".

    @Alexander:
    The form target did the trick. Thank you very much. :)
