    We are going to add a page where visitors to our site can donate to our organization via paypal. After they do that, I would like to create a “receipt window” that will automatically open and thank them for their donation. how would I create that?
    Also, is there a help section on your site that will assist me in adding a paypal donation page/links, etc. to our site?
    Thank you,

    You may be able to set an Auto Return link in your PayPal preferences. Look under Profile → My selling → Website Preferences. If you don’t see an option in that screen for Auto Return, you may not have a PayPal account which allows you to use that feature and you should check with PayPal to see what account type you need.

    Once you find the Auto Return setting in PayPal, you can create a normal page in your site to use at the thank you page.

    If you don’t want to see that page show up in the top navigation, create a custom menu and don’t include the thank you page you created.


    Update: I found out that you need to have a Premier or Business account to have that feature of a return URL, just so you know.
