    After seamlessly working for months I find that since 27th Sept. customers get an error message on a paypal window when they press the "make payment" button from the cart: "This transaction is invalid. Please return to the recipient's website to complete your transaction using their regular checkout flow". There is also a "Return to Merchant" button which doesn't.

    I have changed nothing in my cart or account settings, and upto a few days before orders were being processed normally. Is this a temporary system down at Mals or at paypal, or has something else gone wrong? Any suggestions where to look.

    Sometimes PayPal makes a change and something messes up. Mal discovers the mess up and fixes it. You can just thank Mal for being on the ball.
