It depends on if you intend to have things encrypted or not. If so, you will want to get an SSL certificate. PayPal has instructions on how to create your own private key using OpenSSL.

Go to PayPal -> Profile -> Encrypted Website Payments and read for directions. Once you have your keys, you can proceed with the PayPal IPN Contributions instructions.

I can't help beyond that.

Good luck! :thumbsup:


Thank you for your time and energy.

The funny thing is That i'm using a windows pc and when I went to the openssl web page everything is for linux. But also I'm using a shared Certificate from my hosting company.

I have a dum question I do I really need Encrypted. I know you will probably say yes. But what happens is that before I was doing some reading on the OpenSSL And I don't know how to do that ANd did not find any easy directions on how to do it. Also I am using a Windows PC and everything on the site was for Linux. What would happen if I use UnEncrypted? (I guess someone might Get some info) Any Suggestions.
