|1||Log in to your PayPal account|
|2||Click on the Profile subtab|
|3||Click on the Instant Payment Notification Preferences link in the 'Selling Preferences' column|
You should now be presented with a screen containing the following:
Check the checkbox to activate Instant Payment Notification and enter the following URL below the checkbox.
If the Instant Payment Notification link is not present you will need to apply for Premier Account or a Business Account from PayPal.
|5||Go to Paid Subscriptions > Payment API Manager > PayPal in your AdminCP where you will be presented with the following screen:|
|6||Enter your PayPal email address in the PayPal email field. This does not need to be the primary email address for your PayPal account and can be any email address associated with your PayPal account that you wish to use for payments received from your forum.|
|7||If you wish to use recurring subscriptions, you also need to enter your primary email address for your PayPal account in the PayPal Primary Account Email field.|
Your completed PayPal page will then look like either
where the PayPal email address used for your forum is the same as the primary email address for your PayPal account, or
where the PayPal email address is different to the primary email address for your PayPal account.
|8||Finally, to activate the PayPal API for paid subscriptions, change the Active setting to Yes.|
