Special or accented characters do not show up properly from an IPN submitted by paypal?If the customer name, or address has accented characters and they do not appear correctly on your site after the user has purchased something then chances are the IPN from paypal was not in UTF-8 format.
To set this log into your paypal account.
Then after logging in go to this page:
After going to that page click on "more option" just below the input
Then for your websites encoding option (encoding selection box) select
"utf-8" from the drop down.
Then in the next setting leave it set to "yes" and hit "save".
That should correct the issue.
