    Also, I don't know how to activate IPN. The directions you show on your site must be outdated because the menus do not exist in Paypal. Please advise!!

    Note that IPN is only available on Paypal - Business Account and not on a personal account.

    If you're using business account follow this guide to activate your IPN.

    1. Click on “Profile”, which is a submenu option available within “My Account”

    2. Click on “Instant Payment Notification Preferences” under “Selling Preferences”

    3. Click on “Choose IPN Settings”

    4. Enable IPN if it's disabled.

    Hope this helps!
