I have a contribution page, utilising Paypal standard, set up to handle a membership renewal. The page has a 'renewal' financial type set for it. However, if I initiate a contribution using this page, the resulting contribution record shows as having a different financial type ('registration').
I've come across this because I'm trying to debug a situation where users are reporting that they have made a payment via Paypal (and have sent me the Paypal receipt to prove it), but no contribution record exists for this transaction. The Paypal receipt includes information that strongly suggests that CiviCRM is sending data to Paypal, but as no contribution record exists in the Civi database to link to the receipt, I can't be certain.
Clearly something is not as it should be. I'm using Civi 4.6.10 currently and about to update to latest 4.6.x
Is this a known issue? How can I begin to debug this?
