Create A Thank You Page?

I have affiliate software on my website to track purchases


when someone buys is it possible to have that person

go back to a speciifc "thank You" web page on my site.


I'm not sure what happens after someone buys but I need

to have a page set up so I know for sure that if

they are on that page, they did make a purchase


this way I can credit the affiliate and paytheir commission

Re: Create A Thank You Page?

Hello rempats,


Welcome to the Community Robot wink.


The Auto Return feature may work for your business model.

Auto Return allows merchants to return their buyers to their website upon payment completion. It replaces the PayPal-hosted "Payment Done" page with a page hosted on the merchant's website. 

Here's how to set the auto return preference:


  1. Go to and log in to your account.
  2. Click 'Profile' near the top of the page.
  3. Click 'My selling tools.'
  4. Click 'Update' beside 'Website preferences.'
  5. Select 'On' next to 'Auto Return.'
  6. Specify the page buyers will be redirected to next to 'Return URL,' then click 'Save.'

For more information, please see the Website Payments Standard Integration Guide.


I hope this is helpful.
