Default Automatic email after PayPal payment made?

Is there an easy way or plugin which means that once a payment is made via paypal an email is automatically sent to buyer (where I would include the product download info).

Apologies if this is a very basic question.
Thanks

Use DLGuard, Delavo, Butterfly Marketing, or AMember.

All 4 do that. DLGuard does it best. But Delavo and Butterfly offer better product management.

Use Aweber. Here is the tutorial to make it work with paypal. This is what I do with no problems.

How Do I Integrate PayPal With AWeber? :: AWeber Knowledge Base

They pay via paypal, then aweber kicks in and sends the confirm email or the email with DL link

As Charles above mentioned, u do not need to buy any program for this process to happen. Email parser option in Aweber where u integrate the aweber with paypal is sufficient here.

SO if u already r aweber subscriber, this then become a free option for u.

This method works just fine, and it's ok if you don't have too many products and lists. The reason being that for each list that you want to integerate, you have to add an email address to your PayPal account. PayPal limits the number of email addresses in each account to 10. Assuming you use at least one for personal use, you're limited to 9 lists.
Not a problem if you're just starting out, but as your portfolio of products grows, you'll hit the limit.

I think PayPal lets you have no more than 2 accounts, so the absolute limit is 19 lists using this method.

It's possible to subscribe to an Aweber list by sending a blank email to
listname @ aweber . com
so I wrote an IPN script that sends an email using the customer's PayPal email address. That turned out to contravene Aweber's terms and conditions, so I scrapped it. If I come up with anything better, I'll post it here.

You were on point by utilizing the IPN; but I think your wrong turn was attempting to over use aWeber. aWeber is a "list management" app and their PayPal integration was an after thought; so its not gonna do what is needed, (as you found out).

Since you're savvy enough to know how to implement an IPN script, just modify the script to send the desired email body text & subject line to the desired customer email; (you can hard code the sender if you're gonna be sending from the same merchant email for all the products OR add the sender as a variable to the emailer I'm about to suggest).

Mailer Code
PHP Code:

$_body 
"Set your body text here with desired variables like " $_REQUEST['item_name'] . " and so forth";

$to $_REQUEST['payer_email'];
$subject $_REQUEST['_subject'];
$body $_REQUEST['_body'];
$headers "From: MerchantName <merchant@email.tld>" "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html" "\r\n";
$headers .= "Mime-Version: 1.0" "\r\n";
$headers .= "X-Priority: 1";

mail($to$subject$body$headers);

exit; 
You'll maybe want your return variable in your PayPal button/form to direct buyers to a "remember to whitelist this email address" page; cuts down on customer support inquiries about them not getting confirmation emails.

There you go! Just that simple

Here's two solutions from me. Both are free and both emails the customer with purchase and download info:

1 - Simple IPN
This is a PHP script that you need to install on your server. It's lightweight, where it can only handle ONE product but can have multiple files. Setup is easy where database is not required.
Simple IPN: Free Paypal IPN PHP Script for Digital Download Products -- MiniSiteGallery.com

2 - UPLOADnSELL
This is a free hosted service to sell digital products only. After uploading your files, you will get a URL (like using tinyurl) that you can use with your Order Button, anywhere on the Internet. There's no fees, no registrations, just upload and sell...
Sell eBooks, Files, Downloads, Digital Products with Paypal - UPLOADnSELL.com
