Paypal settings for automatic order confirmation after payment (j1.5/vm1.1.x - j2.5/vm2.x)

Setting the IPN and "thank you" page on Paypal.

IPN means Instant Paying Notification that Paypal sends to your server when customers pay. The "Thank You" page is where Paypal sends the customers after a payment, with complete payment details.

You should setup them both on your account on Paypal, in the "profile" setting, as shown in the image below.

 

 

 

In "My Selling tools" from the left column, there are both setting you need. Edit them.

 

 

The IPN urls are:
