This chapter contains the following sections:


PayPal Configuration: Configuration options that affect the entire PayPal module.
PayPal Payments: Payments received using PayPal.
PayPal Subscriptions: Subscription or recurring payments using PayPal.
PayPal IPN Logs: Log of all IPNs received from PayPal.



Configuring the PayPal module typically involves the following steps. You can leave out ones that don't apply in your case:


1.Enter your PayPal payment email address and PayPal primary email address in Configuration > PayPal. Also configure if the system should get subscription or one-time payments from customers.


When a customer makes a PayPal payment, it will show up in the Management > PayPal > Payments window along with the status of the payment. The Management > PayPal > Subscriptions window maps customer IDs to PayPal subscription IDs.
