info article: Referral Exclusion (Paypal) not working
The problem of checking the data with new visits and return visits is that if the domain is the payment processor (e.g. paypal), the visits from the domain is always 100% as return visits before and after. So it wouldn't help to confirm the exclusion list is working or not. And this is a common problem for ecommerce site GA implementation.
'Star' or 'Accept as Solution' if it helped.
