    How do you auto-redirect to download page after checkout?

    I checked the "Take customers to this URL when they finish checkout", but it doesn't work. When they checkout, they still have to click the yellow button that takes them to the download page.

    I know I've seen other sites out there where after you submit payment, it automatically redirects you to the download page. How do you do this? Is there code you have to type into the Advanced Variables box? Or do you have to be connected to an API or something?

    You have to set up a "Paypal IPN" (google it) I'm no coder I just know you have to have a script to send variables etc to a php file so it can return the correct data to the user.

    Try using e-junkie with Paypal instead. Makes life a lot easier than direct linking with Paypal and can partially protect your downloads.

    But yeah, if you insist on just using Paypal then you need to use IPN as Checkmate said.
