View Full Version : Pay Pal button not forwarding after purchase

04-06-2012, 09:52 AM
Hey guys , I am trying to sell a PDF from my wordpress site via pay pal. I am using their 'buy now' button generator...


Before generating the code, it asks you where you want to forward the customer after they have paid. I am forwarding them to an address which lets them download the PDF

However after the payment is made , they are taken to the receipt page and then nothing happens. If they click back then it will take them to the PDF download page .__.

Has anyone had this issue before?

That depends if you have auto return turned on. The auto return will take them where they need to go. You can also use the payment data transfer option which I suspect is what you have right now but they would have to click on the button that takes them back to your site, not the back button.

Hey Aerospace,

In the button generator I have selected this option..


Is this what you're referring to?

Anyway I have that selected and the address I want them to be sent to which is a page that gives them access to the file. However it doesn't forward them there.
