Every now and then I have a PayPal receipt go to the spam folder in Gmail.  Does anyone know how I can put a stop to this?  The email subject will be "Instant payment received", and Gmail thinks it's a phony, but I check my PayPal and the money is there.

I don't know who is going to send a payment though.  I think I fixed it by creating a filter where if the subject line says "Instant Payment" never send to spam.

That will work, remember to check you Spam folder every so often to make sure legitimate mails aren't getting stopped, and create another filter for those mails,

Glad I could help
