php – Disable shipping address option in PayPal Express Checkout-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

Working with the PayPal API and using the Name-Value Pair Interface PHP source codes from SDKs and Downloads: Simplify Integrations with Downloads and SDKs.

My question is similar to “Removing (or prefilling) the address details for PayPal Express Checkout” but I don’t want shipping cost/address or anything related about shipping at all.

I keep all shipping details on my system (even sometimes shipping doesn’t even apply and there is no charge for it) and I just want user to pay through PayPal without shipping address and shipping cost.

How can I disable shipping part of checkout?

How to solve:

If you’re using the newer API, you could also pass NOSHIPPING=1 (not no_shipping)

Further details about all possible parameters to the SetExpressCheckout here:

https://developer.paypal.com/webapps/developer/docs/classic/api/merchant/SetExpressCheckout_API_Operation_NVP/

Or lookup for Payment experience in new REST API

Answer:

Hey Ergec, just pass along the no_shipping parameter with a value of 1.

From PayPal’s documentation:

no_shipping

Do not prompt payers for shipping address. Allowable values:
0 – prompt for an address, but do not require one
1 – do not prompt for an address
2 – prompt for an address, and require one
The default is 0.

Answer:

The current right answer is depracated. To fix the issue in new API we should create Payment web experience profile resource with needed parameters and attach it to request Payment .

Example in PHP:

/** Note: Define some variables yourself. */

$inputFields = new InputFields();
$inputFields->setAllowNote(true)
    ->setNoShipping(1) // Important step
    ->setAddressOverride(0);

$webProfile = new WebProfile();
$webProfile->setName(uniqid())
    ->setInputFields($inputFields)
    ->setTemporary(true);

$createProfile = $webProfile->create($apiContext);

$payment = new Payment();

$payment->setPayer($payer);
$payment->setIntent($intent);
$payment->setRedirectUrls($redirectUrls)
$payment->setTransactions(array($transaction));
$payment->setExperienceProfileId($createProfile->getId()); // Important step.

$payment->create($apiContext);

if ($payment->getState() === "created") {
    $approvalLink = $payment->getApprovalLink()

    header("Location: $approvalLink"); // Redirects user to PayPal page.
}

Note: You can find all above used classes by link: https://github.com/paypal/PayPal-PHP-SDK/tree/master/lib/PayPal/Api

Answer:

To solve for this from current (2019) web client .JS, add the application_context block to the request body.

Below is an example for createSubscription() call; and I’m thinking this will work with createOrder() as well

paypal.Buttons({
          createSubscription: function (data, actions) {

              return actions.subscription.create({

                  'plan_id'            : 'P-123',
                  'application_context': {
                      'shipping_preference': 'NO_SHIPPING'
                  }
              });
          },

          onApprove: function (data, actions) {

              // ...
          }
      })
      .render('#paypal-button-container');

Thanks to the example code here:

Here’s where the field enums are listed:

Answer:

Create a web profile based on the example found in the API: CreateWebProfile.php.

$createProfileResponse = require  __DIR__ . '/CreateWebProfile.php';
$payment = new Payment(); 
$payment->setExperienceProfileId($createProfileResponse->getId());

File path: paypal/rest-api-sdk-php/sample/payment-experience/CreateWebProfile.php

Answer:

@Ergec : I tried this:

$nvpstr = "&ADDRESSOVERRIDE=1".$shiptoAddress."&L_NAME0=".$L_NAME0."&L_NAME1=".$L_NAME1."&L_AMT0=".$L_AMT0."&L_AMT1=".$L_AMT1."&L_QTY0=".$L_QTY0."&L_QTY1=".$L_QTY1."&MAXAMT=".(string)$maxamt."&ITEMAMT=".(string)$itemamt."&AMT=".$itemamt."&ReturnUrl=".$returnURL."&CANCELURL=".$cancelURL."&CURRENCYCODE=".$currencyCodeType;

It works. Here we can also use shipping address even though we are not charging any amount.
