Select Payment Action to "Authorize" not "Sale", then you can create invoice manually and capture amount online

  • But i dont want to capture payment . I want i just get amount in paypal . and create manually invoice . Capture is not a good method to do this . When i captured from paypal . it will auto create the invoice . i want sale method . I appreciate your response .

  • You mean, when customer place the order on your Magento site with PayPal payment method. it should not create invoice. Once you capture from PayPal at that time invoice should be created in Magento? Commented Sep 17, 2017 at 4:54
