Your store software interfaces with your Paypal account.

To recieve Instant Payment Notifications (IPN) from Paypal back into your store software, you need to have either a Permier or Business type account.

If you have a Permier or Business Paypal account, you need to enter the IPN URL you want notifications sent to:

To enter your IPN into Paypal (for Premier or Business accounts)
1- log into your Papal account
2- Find Seller Preferences & click on it
3- Find Instant payment notifications & click on Update
4- Click on Edit Settings
5- in the text box below Notification URL enter your store IPN URL which will be replace the XXXs with your lure name eg fredslures
6- Make sure you tick Receive IPN messages (Enabled)
7- Click on Save


For personal Paypal accounts

Personal paypal accounts do not have the facility to send payment notications so you will not see any Items waiting to be shipped at the bottom of your store. To check transaction details you will need to:
1- log into your store
2- Go to your Admin Control Panel
3- Go to Store Settings
4- Go to Transactions
5- Any outstanding transactions will be listed here.

When will I know a purchase has been made?

No matter what type of Paypal account you have, you will receive an email from your store software when a purchase is made, and (depending on how your paypal is set up) you should also receive an email from your paypal account saying you have received a payment.
