You may have the following message on the Dashboard:
You can receive this message because you have a test site or a clone after the live site. When you see the message in the dashboard, your payments are stopped. To solve this you have to put the payments from the live site on test mode and then on live mode.
The rule is as follows: On live sites, payments must be set in Live Mode. On the test sites, payments must be put in Test Mode.

According to PayPal’s Announcement, Instant Payment Notification (IPN) has been updated to https for added security. Because IPN is used for all PayPal payments, you will need to ensure that HTTPS is used when posting the message back to PayPal for verification. HTTP postbacks will no longer be supported. Action by you: An SSL certificate is required by 19 January 2016 for Sandbox testing and by 30 September 2016 for all PayPal transactions.
