I am trying to extend the Wrox shop and allow users to pay using paypal.I want to pass the values to Paypay using a query string but am getting this error.

Ive tried posting to Paypal dev and tech support with no help at all.

my code is below

Protected Sub btnPay_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPay.Click
        Dim orderNumber As String = lblOrderNumber.Text
        Dim orderAmount As String = lblOrderAmount.Text
        Dim amt As String = orderAmount.Replace(",", ".")
        Dim shp As String = "5.00"
        Dim url As String = "https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&upload=1&currency_code=GBP&rm=2 &business=mail@art-wax.co.uk&custom=orderNumber&amount=amt&shipping=s hp"

The URL you're trying to redirect looks incorrect, as it seems to start with mail@ instead of https://www.paypal

Also, you're sending hard coded text, not the values. E.g.


should be something like:

orderNumber&amount" & amt & "....

Additionally, you can look at String.Format to make this code a bit more readable.
