Real-time Updates for PayPal Analytics


Control’s Real-time Updates for PayPal Analytics forwards PayPal Instant Payment Notifications (IPN) messages to the Control app because PayPal only permits one IPN endpoint per account and it is overridden by WooCommerce. To keep your data up-to-date and receive push notifications in the Control app, you need to install this plugin.
