Plugin seems to be working perfectly without any issues so far. 5 stars for the support and hand holding I got with this plugin which was just what I needed as a newbie and was very comprehensive and way above and beyond the call of duty.

Avoid this payment method if at all possible. After installation, you need complex set-up between a Paypal account and a sandbox account. After configuration of APIs, you will receive error messages with NO MEANING (invalid header?) on checkout with sample credit card information given in the sandbox account, if it does not process. I set this up over a year ago for another website to test e commerce. Absolutely, NO IMPROVEMENTS with PayPal Pro Sandbox. Actually, it has become worse. NOTE: Installed Strip plugin and the account was set up in seconds with APIs and sample credit card information. I spent over an hour troubleshooting PayPal Pro.
