Support forumCategory: BugsPayPal not working
xavi asked 5 months ago

I’m trying to integrate PayPal to my website but it doesn’t show or work.
Console shows errors like “Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(…).on is not a function”.
I can see that paypal buttons are hidden but if i show them and use them, it doesn’t allow me to Login to PayPal (i’ve tested this in your own paypal demo integration and I get the same error).
I’ve tried your proposal on another support ticket of using “shortcode additional param use_paypal="1". There is also param to turn on smart button paypal_smart_button="true".”
But is the same malfunction.
We will launch our website this Friday and this is the only thing left.
I hope you can help me.

Hi Xavier, looks like jQuery lib is not loaded. Do you use any caching system on your site? Or something for JS/CSS optimisation?

Best regards,

I’ve checked that caching is disabled. 

  • Divi optimization is disabled. 
  • Breeze plug-in disabled. 
  • Varnish and object cache are disabled. 

I’ve tried with default theme and with all plugins disabled, but the result was the same.

Ok, I’ve checked it further and it seems solved now. I will write here the solution for others with the same problem.

  • This error: Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(…).on is not a function”
    It was caused by Divi Theme, that now has a “Performance” tab that defers the loading of jquery by default (Divi > Theme Options > General > Performance).
  • This error: “it doesn’t allow me to Login to PayPal”.
    It occurs on “sandbox mode” and is gone in “production mode”.

I hope this helps other people.
Kind regards,
