Hey @!

Cal here from Shopify, thanks for reaching out to us. Is Paypal the only gateway on your store, currently? Have you completed the Paypal onboarding process

I'd suggest contacting Paypal support directly about your Paypal account, to make sure that it is set up to receive payments. You can contact them directly here

In order to process a sale through Paypal, your customers are redirected to the Paypal checkout (and taken away from Shopify), where it sounds like their payment is being rejected, before being returned to the Shopify checkout. Have you attempted to process a payment this way yourself, and can you replicate the customer's error?

Hi Cal thanks for getting back to me
 
I have been in contact  with PayPal  and they  state  that  all is set up correctly  on their end  and the  problem  lies  with  Shopify.  I have tried  to make purchases  as well  and I get  the  same  message ,as per below.  It gives  me the same message with  any card  I use.image_2021-02-20_225929.png

Third-party gateways are maintained and developed by the gateway provider.

However, I'd suggest getting in touch with our live support team here who can investigate the active gateways on your store and make sure the setup was completed correctly. 

Thanks!
