I configured paypal standard, got the credentionals from paypal and eveyrthing appears to be setup correctly.....
However, when I click on checkout with paypal I get redirected to a /paypal/express/start/button/1/ path that I have no idea what its trying to do.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
Send me the error you are getting and in Magento 1.9.1 Paypal Standard has been replaed by Paypal Express so it will redirect to Paypal Express.
I did, its redirecting me to a page that does not exist.
the web address is correct.....but since you say its redirecting to "express" do I need to install something else now?
Ok, Which Magento version you are using? And are you sure the custom theme you are using is the compatible with your Magento? Because it may be the cause of the issue.
For Magento 1.9 Paypal Standard has been replaced by Paypal Express so it will redirect to Paypal Express.
