How to Connect FileMaker to PayPal - Webinar Promo
Thursday, Nov 9th | 1-2pm PDT
The Sample File will be released at the webinar.
Question: Where is the Paypal Sample file?
A: It will be released Thursday Nov 9th at the Webinar
Question: Is the Webinar going to be Recorded?
A: Yes. It should be available approx 48 hours after Webinar is complete.
Question: Is there a Cost to this?
A: No. There is no plugin, and the Sample File is FREE. However, you will need FileMaker Pro 16 or Go 16
Question: Does Paypal Charge for this Service?
A: No, it is FREE. Keep in mind that Paypal will charge approx 3% Credit Card Service fee on all Transactions. This is typical on Credit Card transactions.
I have had 2 transactions that come back with the error "Declined: 15005" - which means the transaction is declined by the card issuer. This is a card not present, simple transaction so the only info being passed is the cardholder name, credit card number, expiration date, verification code and card type. Both customers called their banks and the transaction is being declined in one case because the address doesn't match and the other because the zip code didn't match. This makes no sense because that info is not even being passed in the transaction. Both cards that gave the 15005 error were ran via ICVerify outside of FM and they were immediately approved. Any idea why Plastic can't get them to go through?
