If it is always from the same IP address then blocking it is a good idea. If it is a region you don't do business in then blocking the IP range may not be a bad idea, either.
An alternative approach is to identify when that user is on your site and give them bad information. Randomly tell them when credit cards are good or bad without actually attempting ...
You could report it to Paypal, let them do their job and investigate these transactions and take appropriate steps upstream to make sure the transactions are declined at payment provider level.
This not only fixes it for you, but all sites using the same payment service, and if its serious enough, they will pass it further up the line to the card issuers ...
I know this is kind of an old question, but I just spent an hour trying to find the answer to this, so hopefully this helps someone someday.
If you're using the new integration method that starts paypal.Buttons instead of paypal.Button.render, you have to append disable-funding to the JS SDK.
This is a rather old question but as I ran into the same issue with a customer today I'd thought I share the solution to this problem for future reference.
The solution is to disable the "Transfer Cart Line Items" option for the PayPal payment method you are using. By disabling this, Magento will no longer give details about the totals, tax and shipping to ...
<form id="my_form" action="http://paypal.com" method="post">

Yes, there are many alternatives.
One such alternative is Stripe, which is geared towards developers and webmasters.
Payments for developers
Stripe makes it easy to start accepting
credit cards on the web today.
If you want a solution that includes fraud checks, weekly bank payments, and recurring items, I'd say go with 2Checkout, who let you accept ...
Going out on a limb without knowing much about your setup.
It seems like you're a target because you're not validating any of the billing address credentials. That enables him to verify valid card numbers without having to know much additional information about the card such as billing zip code. It's also possible that your error messages are too verbose ...
If your the webmaster and you have access to the PayPal account login where the PayPal button was created click on merchant tools and edit your saved PayPal buttons there is an option to remove the credit card area.
According to the PayPal documentation on the srt parameter:
Recurring Times. This is the number of payments which will occur at the regular rate. If omitted, payment will continue to recur at the regular rate until the subscription is cancelled
So you would have to omit the parameter to get to get recurring payments until cancelled. This means that you ...
As long as you have them agree to this kind of payment process this is fine. Just make sure this is clear to them at the time of registration and whenever they submit products. Otherwise you will find yourself getting lots of chargebacks and unable to process credit cards (and having your funds held). Also make sure your merchant account provider is aware ...
You can customize the payment pages by specifying header & footer URLs. However, there's no way to change the actual receipt email customers receive.
But, if you have some programming ability, you can just disable the default email receipt that PayPal sends out, then use the IPN API to send out your own receipt, which you can customize and make however ...

I would turn the store off, integrate with paypal sandbox with debugging and place an order to see what paypals response is when the order goes through. You may want to read this thread about a similar issue http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/294965/#t415543

It's even available in Nigeria http://www.westernunion.ng/ a country I don't think PayPal is available as of ...
If you contact GoDaddy support they will be able to re-issue your SSL certificate using the latest root certificates and algorithms etc.
I can't confirm whether or not their latest algorithms will satisfy the requirements of PayPal but it seems very likely, you should ask them - perhaps copy+paste that message into a live support chat with one of their ...
You should keep the return\thank you page after the payment is processed.
Then add your gateway payment websites in Referral Exclusion list. In that case, paypal.com
It won't be perfect (lot of people miss the last thank you page), but still better. If you see too many discrepancies between GA and your CRM, think about implementing paypal on-site payment.
It's not common for a payment to be 'pending' for an extended period of time. I've not heard of the 'foreign' payment issue - but it doesn't matter what country a persons PayPal account is from, transactions should complete immediately unless there is an issue with the funding on their end.
Common issues with 'funding' can be:
Customer uses a suspicious ...
Yes, you can do this via the API, FORM Variables or both. If you're looking for a solution or examples, then Pro Webmasters would be off-topic because it's about HTML and API programming, Stack Overflow is more suitable if so.
It's strange how some people either have a perfectly delightful experience with paypal, yet others experience the wrath of the underworld.
You might consider zoho. I started out just testing them, however I have moved my entire business there. Both zoho invoice and zoho books can accept payment.
You can get an account there for free. www.zoho.com look ...
Is this the right approach?
I assume gifting someone one else money is only good to be used on the site. Then yes that is one way to go about it. Except maybe not using paypal.
Using paypal to send money into my account on your site is fine but as for using it for your site's merchant account/business I wouldn't do that. PayPal is a monster which has ...
Authorize.Net's CIM API is really only useful for creating payment profiles so you don't have to store customer credit card information. Although storing other information using CIM can be handy, you'll usually want to store that locally for easier management.
Using geolocation should do the trick?
if client doesn't allow it , let them choose themselves, like they would choose a currency.
Also, think about it if it is worth charging your clients.
there are some discussions online about charing your clients for those fees or not.
