"Incorrectly formatted item amount" PayPal Payments Standard


Recommended Posts


When I change the language in my store to German or Spanish and checkout I get following error on the Paypal page:
"The link you have used to enter the PayPal system contains an incorrectly formatted item amount".

Any idea why I get this error?
(I have both countries allowed in the paypal "allowed zone" and it's the same error for any product cost).

Thank you very much for replying to my thread bsmither.

Sometime is also get to a Paypal page saying "Sorry — your last action could not be completed".
There is no logs from the orders that get the Paypal error (incorrectly formatted item amount).

I been trying to see a pattern when this happens and it seems to be related to:
1) Using German or Spanish language in the store.
2) When checking out having German or Spain selected as country.

Maybe someone could verify this by testing it at: http://gamesitetemplates.com
