Redirect URI Failure

Upon following the implementation step, “Then under Redirect URIs, you’ll add a URL and copy and paste your website URL into the Redirect URI field. For apps in development, the URI can be localhost and can use HTTP.” and using http://localhost for the redirect URI, upon clicking the Connect to Quickbooks green “Connect” button, I receive the following: “We’re sorry!
The redirect_uri query parameter value is invalid. Make sure it is listed in the Redirect URIs section on your app’s keys tab and matches it exactly. Click here to learn more about the redirect_uri query parameter.”

Please advise what to do.

Thank you!

Hi there,

May I ask what was the redirect URI that was input, and was that within the production or live settings? Also, is Debug Mode On set to Yes or No within your Event Espresso > Payment Methods > Quickbooks page?

Hi there,

Looks like your missing the trailing slash from the end of your redirect uri.

If you go to Event Espresso -> Payment methods -> Help (top right) -> Quickbooks settings you’ll find the full uri that you need to use –

Redirect URI: http://localhost
Debug Mode On is set to Yes.

Added trailing slash so it read http://localhost/.

Still same error.

Your directions to the help section identified using my website URL, which appears to have worked. Thanks!

Yeah http://localhost/ will only work if your site’s domain is actually ‘localhost’ so its best to use the help docs.

Anyway, I’m glad you got it working.
