View Full Version : Why will paypal not redirect while in iframe PAYING 2$ to get this fixed

Basically I have a script iframed into a little sidebar widget on my main website

As you can see, but when you try to purchase a rank, it doesn't redirect to paypal. It usually would, it worked before

It works on the normal version here


here is my page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<LINK REL=StyleSheet HREF="style.css" TYPE="text/css">
<BODY bgcolor="#1d1d1d">

require "config.inc.php";
$rank = $_POST['rank'];
$username = $_POST['username'];
if (isset($username)) {
} else {
header ("Location: index.php");
if (isset($rank)) {
} else {
header ("Location: index.php");

switch($rank) {

case "Citizen":
$price = 5;


if ($rank == $rank1) {
$price = $rank1_price;
} if ($rank == $rank2) {
$price = $rank2_price;
} if ($rank == $rank3) {
$price = $rank3_price;
} if ($rank == $rank4) {
$price = $rank4_price;
} if ($rank == $rank5) {
$price = $rank5_price;
} if ($rank == $rank6) {
$price = $rank6_price;
} if ($rank == $rank7) {
$price = $rank7_price;

You can't use PayPal within an <iframe>.
PayPal won't allow that for security reasons.

I suggest you use Express Checkout instead (see PayPal's API documentation),
or put your widget inside a <div> instead of <iframe>.

How would I do that?
