Although the cart doesn't require a customer to return to the cart, to finish a transaction (The transaction itself is handled internally automatically), you can set up PayPal IPN to send a customer back to your website after a transaction was made (without the need to click on a button or return URL).

Please refer to the following instructions, if you want to enable "auto return" for PayPal IPN.

1. Log in into your PayPal account
2. Click the "Profile" tab under "My Account".
3. Click the "Website Payment Preferences" link under "Selling Preferences".
4. Click the "On" radio button to enable "Auto Return".
5. Enter the "Return URL".
6. Click the "Save" button.

Please use a URL with the following format for the "Return URL" and make sure to replace "" with your actual website URL:

After your entered this information, your customers should be automatically redirected to the "Completed" page after a payment was made.
