Hi Folks,

We were having problems with Paypal’s button under a new account I set up for Premier.  They said the issue was fixed, but apparently it isn’t. 

I’ve changed the button to the old one, so everything is working normally…I just bought 8 tickets myself to test it.  Give it a try and let me know if you have any problems this time.

Much appreciated!  Cheers!
