I am facing problem with paypal standard payment.

Everything is fine until success page. When customer complete payment. Then paypal is not redirecting to Magento success page. It is still is in Paypal page. But charging from customer Paypal account and no payment information is coming to Magento backend and it is showing order as pending.

  • What kind of extensions are you running? Anything related to PayPal? Has any core code been edited? I would attempt to reinput all the PayPal credentials in the backend, and also change your theme to the default Magento theme (assuming it has 0 changes) and try to do a checkout.

For redirecting to your store on successful payment at PayPal, you need to set preferences in the PayPal account associated with the store.

For this you need to access the PayPal account, go to profile.
In selling tools in website preferences you need to update the settings to redirect to the success page of your store. You need to put

http://www.storename.com/paypal/standard/success/ OR http://www.storename.com/index.php/paypal/standard/success/

based on whether you are using URL rewrites or not.

In the above mentioned link, you need to replace storename with the site name of your store.
