“When the payment was completed, I had to click “Return to” from the Paypal page. I THOUGHT this would automatically redirect to my Thank You page” – Nope, the customer needs time to deal with the payment confirmation data shown to them on the payment confirmation page on PayPal. Remember, not all the customers will have a PayPal account (the ones that pay using a credit card) so when they leave this page they have no way to get this info.
Sandbox account has limitations when it comes to emailing (it’s a virtual email so email can get routed to it).
Sandbox testing is good but it’s best to do an one cent live transaction once you are confident that everything is setup correctly and you are nearly ready to go live.November 9, 2011 at 9:53 pm #21874timowriMember
I had tried the $0.01 price option, but Paypal won’t let me pay to the same paypal email address.

One way might be to setup a secondary email to the same paypal account and use that as the buyer. As you may know, paypal allows you to have other email addresses for your account but it uses only one as the “primary”.
Alternatively if possible, try using a friend’s or family member’s account as the seller.
