Which Paypal addon to use
@steve Please use the first one PayPal v1.0.2. That should work for you.
When I click on Paypal integration guide link, I'm brought to this page http://altfarm.mediaplex.com/ad/ck/3484-197941-8030-169
And receive "Site can't be reached"
Also when clicking on Section2 ->Sign up, I'm brought to this page

The links that you refer to point to the wrong links therefore you need to update them to correct ones.
To do that you need to replace the file back_office.tpl located at: qloapps_root_dir/modules/paypal/views/templates/admin/back_office.tpl with the one attached with this answer. Please download and replace the original file with the provided one.
Let us know of your findings.
Thank you for the update, I had already changed the links to the correct one.
I have a question of concern, How did the file get corrupted in the first place? It was downloaded like that, so how is it wrong in the repository?
The issue is not due to file being corrupted but the PayPal module itself has the wrong links. We plan to update the module in next release version of QloApps.
My concern is, the links in the code were not even close to being the right ones. The links were making it look like a paypal link but was taking to some other website. How was this module tested and passed to be released.
I'm concern with security.
@steve The PayPal module happens to be a very old version and therefore the links seem to be valid at that point of time.
Is there a newer version I should be using?
There is no new version is released for QloApps for this PayPal module.
You can use the current version with suggested changes in the previous replies.
In case we update this PayPal module for the coming version, we will surely update you.
