Problem with Embedded PayPal Code


The site in question is:

I have inserted the following PayPal code (received from my employer) on the page:

<form action="" method="post" target="_top">
				<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
				<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="PH4BBFQQ5KE4Y">
				<table style="margin:auto;">
				<tr><td><input type="hidden" name="on0" value="Bottles Number מספר בקבוקים">Bottles Number מספר בקבוקים</td></tr><tr><td><select name="os0">
				 <option value="1 Bottle  בקבוק">1 Bottle  בקבוק ₪72.00 ILS</option>
				 <option value="2 Bottles  בקבוקים">2 Bottles  בקבוקים ₪126.00 ILS</option>
				 <option value="3 Bottles  בקבוקים">3 Bottles  בקבוקים ₪156.00 ILS</option>
				 <option value="10 Bottles בקבוקים">10 Bottles בקבוקים ₪450.00 ILS</option>
				</select> </td></tr>
				<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="ILS">
				<input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
				<img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1">

When the buy button is clicked, the following error occurs:

Does anyone know of a reason this could be happening?

Thanks for your help

It looks like your acct may not be a business acct. I ran into this problem a while back when i was setting up a site for a client.

Hi @yoramraz1, thanks for your update. I think the main thing to check is this:

  1. Are you selling a product? You need a business account in Paypal to sell online, so check that first
  2. If you update to business account, and it still does not work, let us know and we can check further

Just looking at the site itself, I am not showing any errors, but I cannot say if the hosted button id that you are using is valid or not. From where did you get this form code, did you get it from some help page for Paypal? Can you provide that URL?

I would recommend checking the account setup next, and determine what kind of account you have. After that, we can check further.

Cheers, Dave


Thanks a lot for your quick reply Dave.

Yes, we are selling a product. I thought my employer did open a business
account, but I’ll look into it and also try to see where he got the code

Again many thanks for your help.

Hi @yoramraz1, great :slight_smile: It could very well be a business account and that is not even what the issue is, but it is a process of elimination, just to make sure that the obvious stuff is checked first :smile:

Waiting to hear back :slight_smile: Cheers, Dave
