You could create a meta refresh. Than your customer will automatically be forwarded to the given address. It looks like this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; URL=http://www.yourwebsite.com/" />

PayPal offers automatic redirection to different URLs after different kinds of processes complete.  You can set these in the "merchant tools" area of your PayPal account.

Autoreturn is the "thank you" page (You are required by PayPal T&C to include certain statements on this page).  PayPal will attempt to redirect the client browser to this page after a transaction is completed.  PayPal puts up a "click here if not redirected" message.

Instant Payment Notification is the general purpose processing page.  You have great freedom to use the information from the PayPal transaction in this script.

Cancel is the page for transactions that were cancelled by the client before completion.

@logudotcom: Please see the page here about grading.  I gave you the EXACT information you need to move forward, yet you marked my solution down to a "B" without any explanation or dialog at all?? What did I do wrong?  I cannot go into your PayPal account and make the settings for you!

Thanks for your consideration.  At the bottom of the original post, on the right, there is a "request attention" button.  Just click that and say, "Please change grade" - a moderator will take care of it.

Appreciate it, ~Ray
