    Why don't you contact their support department?

    I had never heard of the service until now, but it looks like it's designed to be able to remotely access your computer at home. Your ISP is likely consistently changing your IP address, (typically to prevent customers from hosting servers on their home internet connection). This can turn into an issue when you go to remote into your desktop at home and your ISP decided to change your IP on you. Thus, the service likely installs some kind of service on your computer to detect your IP and forward it to their servers.

    Normally it will work with what you did, check your configuration again or delete and add again.
    Normal it will be active after 10/30 minutes. If this not helps, than you need to contact the noip support.

    Does it show when you access with the IP online 'http://YOURIP' ?

    Thank you in advance.
    If you are trying to service an ecommerce operation using home based hosting you are seriously misguided. Home hosting is a complete waste of time for any website, let alone one that needs to take transactions reliably. You can get cheap shared hosting for the price of a sandwich that will be a lot better solution.

    I thought the Paypal transactions are handled by Paypal though?

    They are, but there's still a back-and-forth exchange of data to the host throughout the process. Aside from that, I believe he was talking about general reliability, not just with Paypal.
