Hi all,

I am going to be using PayPal as my merchant on my soon to be launched website. It's a custom Java app with a PayPal checkout. I want to send 'order notification' emails to customers as a confirmation/receipt. Is this possible to set this up automatically as PayPal will have the email inputted by the customer at the checkout?

Kind Regards,
Ben

Hi, PayPal sends already automatically an email notification to the buyer, after a successful checkout, with the details of the transaction. If you want to implement a customized email notification you can do it within your application, maybe using the details of the transaction (obtained throught the IPN or calling a method like GetTransactionDetails) and creating your own procedure to build and send this email.
