If orders are not appearing in your Whiplash order summary, check to make sure they are being sent by Paypal here:

For each payment you've received in Paypal, there should be a Message ID with a delivery status of Sent. If the delivery status is anything other than Sent or you still have questions, share the contents of the Message with Whiplash Support.
