    I set up a free cart just for downloadable products. I am using PayPal and Standard Payment method.

    If someone pays through PayPal how will I be sure PayPal redirects them to my download page? Do I have to buy the product myself to test this? do I need to do anything out of the ordinary to make this work?

    Thanks in advance

    The only way to test it is to have someone purchase the product from you. I don't believe PayPal lets you purchase from yourself. If you have PayPal setup so it returns to the cart then it should work fine.

    Hi Tim,
    As you already have your site setup for downloads, could you let me know how you did this - I am trying to set a site up for mp3 downloads (also using Paypal).
