How do I auto-return my customers to my store after they checkout with PayPal?

At the end of your customers’ checking out with PayPal for your store, there is a link they need to click to return to your store. You can, however, set up your PayPal account to do this for them.

1.) Log into your PayPal account and click the Profile subtab under My Account.

4.) Enter your Return URL. (i.e http://www.yourdomain.com/finishorder.php  [Replace the “www.yourdomain.com” with your actual store URL.]
*Tip, if you don’t have your own SSL certificate, this page will look something like this, “www.store21224221.com/finishorder.php.*

5.) Save the changes.

Once this URL is turned on from the PayPal side it will auto return the client after the payment is complete, removing the need to click on the link to return to your store.
