Configuring URL for IPN on Paypal account

When a registration payment clears on your Paypal account, Paypal has the ability to inform our server that a specific registration has been paid. This feature is called IPN (Instant Payment Notification), where Paypal sends a message to the STRONGVON server to indicate that it’s clear to process a pending registration to the Approved list. To enable this feature on your Paypal account you need to ensure that you enable the IPN feature your Paypal account, and that you configure the STRONGVON URL for that feature.

To configure the correct URL, follow these instructions:
