Not sure if I am doing django-paypal correctly

Hello all,

      I decided to try and accept payments on my web application.  I have chosen the django-paypal application to help me out with this task.  I found a decent walkthrough at: how-to-accept-paypal-payments-on-your-django-application.  I was able to follow everything until the last step of: "6. Setup a listener to detect successful Paypal payments"  I have never really setup any listeners before so I did not know what to do.  I decided to read the Django-PayPal ReadTheDocs and I found a file that looked structurally similar to what I found on the original walkthrough I had found.  It looks like I needed to make a file in my project directory.  I have accomplished that, and the ReadTheDocs says: "Remember to ensure that import the hooks file is imported i.e. that you are connecting the signals when your project initializes. The standard way to do this is to create an AppConfig class and add a ready() method, in which you can register your signal handlers or import a module that does this."  This is where I am getting lost.  I am not quite sure what to do.  Does anyone have a better walkthrough or know what I need to do?

Thank you.
