    Thanks for your reply.

    Mal has since replied with the following:

    PayPal have discontinued the "return" system which was used to send someone back to the cart after they had paid. You need to use the IPN instead, this is an option on the PayPal page in the cart setup:

    "PayPal should make an IPN call to the cart to confirm when someone pays. Select this option if you want an order notification from the cart."

    We've set this option and the e mail comes through to us and the customer ok plus the order list now shows the order as 'paid' correctly.

    Downside is that after the payment is complete the customer no longer gets returned to the cart but is directed to the PayPal home page.
