I have Paypal set up and working but after a successful transaction the users balance is not updated.
I have searched high and low and cannot find any solutions.
Does anyone have Paypal working with a2billing and updating the accounts?
If so could you please show me your a2billing section of a2billing.conf as I am at my wits end with it.
I have auto-return turned on on my Paypal account, is this needed?
If so, to what URL?

I now have Paypal working!
For the benefit of others I will show how I did it.

Contrary to many different sugestions the 2 paypay entries in a2billing.conf have to be:

paypal_payment_url = "https://secure.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr"
paypal_verify_url = "www.paypal.com"

and you need to login to your paypal account and turn on auto return and enter the return address of your payment processor. ie. (for me using elastix 1.6 and a2billing 1.3.0 it was
https://myip/a2customer/checkout_process.php)

The documentation on the a2billing site showed the paypal_verify_url="ssl:www.paypal.com"
which does not work for me (failing in the logs)

These are the ONLY changes I have made, hope it helps someone...

Hi,
Thanks for posting these tips.
Can you explain what you mean by

"and you need to login to your paypal account and turn on auto return and enter the return address of your payment processor. ie. (for me using elastix 1.6 and a2billing 1.3.0 it was"

what is auto return, and where can i find it on the paypal site?
Thanks,
square

In specific here is what I did...

Refering to the instruction on the a2billing site ( http://www.asterisk2billing.org/cgi-bin ... tup_paypal )

"Login into your paypal account
click to profile > Selling Preferences > Website Payment Preferences
set the tab "Auto return" on
Return URL: Enter your URL with the checkout_process.php in my sample its:
http://myserver.net/a2billing/customer/ ... rocess.php
save the settings. "

But the shown paypal_verify_url of ssl://www.paypal.com was failing for me in the logs so I tried just www.paypal.com and everything worked perfect!
