PayPal IPN setting

This is a request to sugment documentation, (I think) I resolved the operating issue on my own for once.

On the Payment Methods/PayPal Standard page there is a note that reads “You will need a PayPal Premier or Business account for the PayPal IPN to work correctly.” IPN is Instant Payment Notification from PayPal, for those like me who did not know that. So I checked and found we are a PP Standard account holder and went no further. Come to find out, there’s an obscure field over in PayPal where I needed to plug in a URL on my site for PP to send notification of payment. Having the right account type was only half the issue!

Was not easy to track this down in PayPal or EE4, nor was the resulting error message helpful, but I was able to ferret it out. You could help new user a lot by amending that note to advise people that they have to fill in that PayPal field and what they need to put there.

Yep, that was the page that I used to figure out what to do. Took some digging to find it.
