Running out of hair to pull out at a faster rate...

I suppose I should be enthusiastic that paypal does respond to problem reports.

/"The problem here is that you have setup a tax profile in your account. Unfortunately, the profile based tax calculations are currently not supported by paypal mobile interface. So you will need to add the tax directly in the button code."/

So after spending a major amount of time setting up a test site and gathering feedback for my response I learn that one of the functions I selected in the button create tool causes the failure. The tech sent me an image for reference, see at: www.dottedi.info/images/paypal-mobile-friendly-checkout.png

It kind of makes me wonder what else that you might innocently try to set up using their button creation interface doesn't work for mobile - and is undocumented. Gee - I wonder how much time it would take PP to add a little documentation (oh by the way) to the interface to save their customers a couple days' time........

Maybe it's time to look into Google Checkout.
