PayPal Standard Method

We are using PayPal standard.

Apparently the way it works is after the transaction is complete, the customer can return to our site page or not.

Is there any way to FORCE the redirect to our site page upon completion of the transaction? Not give the buyer a choice?

That appears to be perfect. However, I don't have account owner privileges, so I've asked the account owner to do what it says at that link.

I'm HOPING that does it. If so, you'll get the points.

It doesn't work, It still gives them a choice.

Also, I contacted PayPal tech support. Here is what they said.

"We cannot t force our buyer to return to any website in particular, that is their choice."

How do they think the buyer got to the PayPal site in the first place? They are idiots.

Any ideas?
