OK- I just had a friend try to buy something and when she hit the paypal buy now button on the reciept page, a warning page came up and it said "the seller accepts encrypted website payments only. you can not pay the seller through unencrypted buttons. Please contact seller for more details." Then a button "return to seller for more details"
I've e-mailed etsy support, but I'm about to have a nervous breakdown here.
Has anyone else had this problem?

It's a Paypal setting. Let me see if I can find an older thread.

This is an issue with the seller's paypal settings -- they will need to turn off their PayPal account's option to only select encrypted PayPal buttons, and open their account up to unencrypted PayPal buttons.

I think that's all you need to know. Your buyer will be able to buy once that setting is changed.

Good luck! :-)

That happened to me too. I had to change it in my Paypal settings.

Is this an internet safety issue?
