PayPal Transaction ID Errors

Problem

After a successful PayPal® transaction using the PayPal Payments module, you see the following error for the same transaction ID at Billing > Gateway Log:

Transaction ID X already exists

Cause

After processing a PayPal Payments transaction, the system will receive a webhook request from PayPal. This second log message indicates that the system already recorded the transaction.

Solution

This log entry does not indicate a problem. You can safely ignore it.
