Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Not sure what’s credits_paypal.php, but this may be related to Payment does not finalize when discount code is used. Have you used discounts?

credits_paypal.php is a payment gateway to proceed transaction through PayPal IPN

Basically this ->
(This is for plugins developed by Diogo Parinha from mybb staff)

No, the user did not use a discount code. Also the user explained that they paid with their credit card through paypal and then "a popup error of the MOP appeared, something like (not shown before) when I returned to the website, saying it was canceling transaction".

PS: My user had the same issue like @RocketFoot explained
" He said he was not allowed any payment choices such as paypal balance or paypal credit. He had to use his credit card."

So credits_paypal.php isn't much of a concern for BankPipe as it's not part of it.

Credit card or PayPal balance doesn't make much of a difference to PayPal's API. BankPipe doesn't do anything to force credit card or PayPal balance, this is a choice on PayPal's side. Thing here must be the discounts cap feature that has been introduced with beta 8. If I'm right, there should be an SQL error in your error.log file (assuming you have logging enabled). Am I right?

One more user reported the following:

"I try to buy XX but paypal did not accept automatic currency conversion and cant pay with paypal money. pls help"

No error logs present now as I don't have generated discounts in ACP.

This is how bankpipe is logging

Ok, so it's a matter of PayPal not accepting currencies. Go to and log in with your account. Click on Add new currencies and add all the currencies you can. Pending payments are somewhere in your account, as soon as you approve them they will resolve in BankPipe as well thanks to webhooks. To double-check, go to the Payments history section and see payments marked as pending.

As for the other issue, do you have discounts set for previous subscriptions? Still check your error.log file.

I can't access that link (I use business account), redirects back to dashboard.

No error logs and i never used discounts so far.

Read I still believe it's a matter of the discount feature which is the only thing that has changed in the checkout process so it's most probably the culprit if everything was working before.

The paypal interface is sadly nothing like that one in the post. They have changed it so much recently and many options are not there anymore :/ Even search tool doesn't show currencies

This is the only thing i found remotely close
