PayPal Shopping Cart problem

Post by makenote3 »

Hi, I've set up a PayPal Account and I'm attempting to integrate the shopping cart on a website using the QWB Paypal tools. I have followed the online tutorial http://www.quickandeasywebbuilder.com/paypal_cart.html

When I set the site live and click on the add to cart button I get this message from Paypal:
We're sorry, things don't appear to be working right now. Please try again later.

I get the feeling there's something I need to do at the Paypal end but I find their instructions very confusing, which is why I'm using the QWB method.
Can anyone suggest what I need to do?

Here's the html that is generated from QWB:

</div>
<div id="wb_LayoutGrid5">
<div id="LayoutGrid5">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-1">
<div class="col-1-padding">

I think, the amount and shipping values should not include the dollar sign.
