It's under "Website Payment Preferences" in your Profile


Auto Return for Website Payments:

Auto Return for Website Payments brings your buyers back to your website immediately after payment completion. Auto Return applies to PayPal Website Payments, including Buy Now, Donations, Subscriptions, and Shopping Cart.


I've had this problem with people who pay via PayPal with a credit card, but don't have a paypal account. The order does not get recorded on OSC and all I get is the PayPal payment alert, without order details. I just turned on the Auto Return option, hopefully that will fix it...
