This section provides us with eight different settings; let's see what they are and
what they do:
PayPal receiver email—This is the email address assigned to our
PayPal processing URL—This is PayPal's web address for processing
payments; this would only need to be changed if PayPal were to change its
system to use a different URL.
Successful payment URL—This is the page on our website where the
customer should be taken to if their payment is successful.
Cancel payment URL—This is the page on our website where the customer
should be taken to if their payment is cancelled.
PayPal IPN "request back" validation URL—If we use IPN where PayPal
"pings" our website to let it know the transaction went through, we can send
a request back to PayPal to prove this was valid; the address where we send
this request is the request back validation URL. This will only be changed if
PayPal changes its systems.
Currency code—This specifies the currency that PayPal should use while
Debug Instant Payment Notification (IPN)—We may wish to check whether
the IPN system within PayPal is working correctly with our website. If we
enable the debugging of the IPN we will get an email each time it is used;
this way we can keep a check on it.
Minimum purchase amount—This is the minimum amount of a purchase
before PayPal can be used as a payment gateway; this can be useful as with
some low transactions such as $0.20 products PayPal would take the entire
sum as the transaction fee.
At least one of these settings will require a new page to be created, this is for the
cancelled payment page, so before we go and adjust these settings let's create the
page for cancelled payments.
