paypal pro is 2 checkout nmethods:
-Direct payments - enter the credit card on your site\
-express checkout - go to the paypal site
which payment method are you testing?
if you are testing the express checkout method, you need to make the changes to the store order summary behavior on the pp_confirm page.
The Database presets using the Local and Remote names refer to local checkout versus remote checkout. for Paypal Express, you should use the remote preset.
When using a Remote checkout method like Authorize.net SIM Method, it is not a real time checkout, so the order table will have an order status column to be updated when the transaction is completed.
Paypal Pro is a Local Checkout process, the transaction is processed in real time, so the status column is not needed.
"ran the checkout wizard again but there were issues with the checkout process."
Please be more specific, what are the checkout problems, saying it doesn't work is not really helpful, please describe what part does not work, are you getting errors? the more details you give, the better i can address the problem.
