    Do you mind to elaborate on your use case a bit? What do you mean manual payment? I am afraid I did not understand what you want to achieve.

    if a user goes to pick a product and picked paypal from drop down, of course this runs the ipn , they sign into pay pal and when they come back they are known to have paid ect

    BUT as i dont want too many ipn payments at present as a new account and been told if new and loads of payments flags you

    whats a easy way to allow pay pal manually?

    maybe something like:
    ofline payment, but word it for pay pal
    tell them to send the money via a email, as gift? or as normal money?
    once paid i will do a manual add of payment?>

    thanks

    It make sense. I believe your assumptions is correct. You can use offline payment plugin for it. You need to change title of plugin to PayPal and in instruction mention that user need to send specified sum to specified paypal account with some comment (I suggest to include invoice number to this comment so you can easy find correct invoice once receive money in PayPal). Then once user send money to you can add this payment to invoice manually.
