Currently testing PayPal payments from WordPress website using Events Manager Pro plugin. I’m able to purchase items OK, the email notifications are working fine, but the Notification of Payment Recieved and the Receipt for Your Payment text in the Sandbox Accounts are gobbledegook, garbage or encoded somehow.

Extract below:

Not used PayPal Sandbox before, so don’t know what I should expect to see, although I didn’t expect to see this garbage text for sure! 😀

Any help much appreciated!
