PayPal "Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later"

Using WooCommerce & Paypal plugin.

WooCommerce & PayPal Checking Gateway

I tried all of the plugins available and seemed to have different errors with each, the one that seemed to work for me was the “WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Gateway” with WooCommerce.

Before this I Uninstalled/deleted every other WooCommerce plugin that didn’t seem to work the way I wanted it to.

After trying them all and constantly having issues. I started off from scratch and installed only this Plugin Which is built By WooCommerce. PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway for WooCommerce.

Setting wise I left everything default (Environment was set to Live)

The best part about this plugin is that it gathered the PayPal information itself. (other plugins did not, this really made it easier)

Once the setup was done, I was facing the following error. “Things don’t appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later.”

Here is how I fixed the above error. 

  1. Login to Paypal.com and go to the little Gear on the top Right.  **You must have a Business Account**
  2. Select – My Selling Tools
  3. Pick – Website Preferences  and press UPDATE
  4. Encrypted website payments(Block non-encrypted website payment) – SET TO OFF

Then Tested it again!!!! And BINGO.. it was finally working.
