• How do I set up PayPal Standard to return to my store automatically?

    Detailed setup instructions for PayPal Standard can be found here: http://www.zen-cart.com/wiki/index.php/PayPal

    The quick overview for properly configuring IPN is as follows:
    1. You must have a "Premier" or "Business" PayPal account in order to use the PayPal module for receiving payments.

    2. Log into your PayPal account and go to the "Profile" tab.

    3. Click on "Website Payments Preferences"

    4. Change Auto-Return to "On"

    5. Provide return URL: http://www.mysite.com/MY_SHOP/index.php?main_page=checkout_process (for nonSSL sites) or

    (for sites with their own Certs) or


    6. Also on the same screen, lower down: PayPal Account Optional - your choice. If you set this to "On", then people who do not have a PayPal account can still pay via their credit card through the PayPal site, without having to create a PayPal account (although they'll be encouraged to create one).

    Note: The sessions work automatically. Do not change your sessions setting in the Zen Cart Admin.
