Is there a particular paypal setting that allows WooCommerce to execute woocommerce_payment_complete without manually accepting the payment? I have a function that hooks on it. It basically updates a record in the database once the client has finished purchasing the product. Thoughts?

Not fully sure what you're asking but the IPN from Paypal should already trigger a payment complete on your site automatically when a payment is made without any manual processing. – user23654 Sep 2 '13 at 23:36
Yeah that's what I understood. What's puzzling is the hook is triggered if I switch to sandbox mode. – Rade Sep 3 '13 at 2:20
