Description

PayPal Standard is throwing DEPRECATED_PARAM_MODIFY due to the modify param, but their documentation says modify=0 should be sent and is what we are sending.

https://developer.paypal.com/docs/paypal-payments-standard/integration-guide/Appx-websitestandard-htmlvariables/#deprecated-variables

It's possible this is being removed entirely and also needs to be removed in our integration. The below deprecated params are being sent by our integration.

modify
page_style
no_note

There has been no official response from PayPal regarding this issue. The error code also does not exist in their documentation.

Actually, the deprecated Paypal variables are listed here (scroll down 1-2 screens to see the full list of now ignored variables):

And from what I saw on forums, it's the "modify=0" variable that Paypal was refusing for a day or two a week ago, then re-instaured it. The general guess is that someone at Paypal thought that he could just refuse it.

Will finish reviewing and merge the MR.
