My members are telling me that the paypal button is erring out. It has worked for years. Can you give me any insights?

    Go to - Member Assembler --> Configure --> Checkout. It looks like the field "Paypal API Username" field is incorrect. Right now that appears as your email address but it should actually be a modified version of your email address, something like ""

    To confirm what that should actually be, you'll need to log into your Paypal account and follow the steps in this helpfile -

    Probably what happened here is your browser auto-filled this field in when you were making a change on this page. We've seen this specifically with Safari; other browsers have not had this issue that we've observed.

    But make that change and that should correct the issue.
