I had a customer sign up for a reccurring profile product and they checked out using Paypal as a payment method.

Magento created a Recurring Payment Profile for her to be charged once a month, but it did not create an order.

For orders placed using our other payment methods a recurring payment profile is created as is an order.

Is there something I need to configure further with Paypal/Magento to have the order and profile created? Has anyone else had this issue?



This is old, but in case it helps someone, you need to log in to your PayPal account and set where IPNs (Instant Payment Notifications) should be sent. I believe it's http://www.yourdomain.com/paypal/ipn. Magento creates the order when it receives an IPN from PayPal.
