I am selling subscriptions and using IPN.
I have password management turned on.
It is working - paypal updates my password file and I have the username/password avaialble in the history of both the buyer and the seller.

HOWEVER, I would like to have Paypal show the buyer his new username and password on the confirmation screen.

Or if that is not possible then have it in that confirmation email. For reasons I do not understand Paypal's default mode is to have the user look up that information in their history section of their account. [in fact the buyer has to KNOW he can do that because paypal doesnt tell him that]

Clearly, if you are a paypal seller using subscriptions you want the buyer to see his username and password immediately.

So, how do I show the buyer his new username and password on the final confirmation screen?

PS: Please remember the following -
I have password management turned on.
I have the proper code in my join form's code.
I have usernames and passwords generated for me by paypal.
Paypal inserts them into the htpasswd file.

This is due to a bug in Friday's system upgrade. A fix is being tested for roll-out soon.
