[HUGE SECURITY HOLE]
When a buyer purchases something from a "buy now button", they get an email from Paypal automatically.
This email, has our seller LOGIN EMAIL CREDNETIALS.
This is a huge security hole, in which one of the many thousands of people we hope to sell to, will have a way to LOG INTO OUR ACCOUNTS. Or, at least half of a way, sure they still need the password.
There is no sane or logical reason why this would be displayed, it is not needed whatsoever. Even worse, there appears to be scant documentation regarding how to turn it off.
Please help, how to disable this notification email or wipe out my (LOGIN CREDENTIALS!!) from said email.
Account Type: Business
Checkout: Buy Now/IPN
Thanks much friends.
