PayPal IPN acknowledgements failing with SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure

This is the same problem as Error 0x1408F10B: “SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number” with PayPal SDK

The version of PayPal API we are using hard codes CURLOPT_SSLVERSION to 3.

Our fix is to insert this before any PayPal calls.
