I FIXED IT.
I reasoned: what the WP Affiliate plugin needs? That the Thank You page is on the same WP blog as the plugin and the salesletter.
I had two Thank You pages on two separate WP blogs (one for each Paypal button) and so the loop wasn’t closed. The plugin couldn’t record the sale.
So I created two Thank You pages (one for each Paypal button) IN THE SAME WP blog as the plugin and the salesletter.
The Thank You pages are empty and have a redir to the “previous” Thank You pages on the separate blogs (again, one for each Paypal button). They only duty is to make the plugin happy and close the purchase loop.
And it works.
I understand that having a single blog for everything is easier, but this would have required to deal with a different membership sofware (the one I use I know it inside out) and change everything. This solution seems elegant and works.
What do you think?

First of all, compliments for nailing down the problem. However, I don’t know how to solve it, because the solution you give me doesn’t work in my setup.
I have the site where I have the salesletter and the WP Affiliate plugin that has 2 different buttons and sends to two different sites for the product.
Basically what you are telling me is that I should have a single WordPress for everything: salesletter, 2 different products (membership) and WP Affiliate.
It is a totally different setup from what I have now and it involves even a different plugin to manage the membership (I used a simple plugin that doesn’t provide levels, so I just made two sites).
Do you see any workaround that doesn’t require me to do all these changes?

1) I checked, the return URLs already have no “www”.
Copied directly from Paypal “Edit button”:
2) Debug enabled and test transaction done.
I set up a test page and a test affiliate and a test product (1 euro).
I erroneously made the test button as shopping cart in place of buy now button, hope this doesn’t spoil the test (I always use buy now buttons).
3) Here is the “thank you” page URL after the test purchase:

Link with the Paypal buttons (as links):
The PDT feature sends me to the above Return URLs.
Those are different from the Return URL I have as default in the PDT configuration page in Paypal.
I am using WordPress, not putting the plugin in a standalone html page.
