What url to use for paypal ipn?


Recommended Posts

I put that url in PayPal's IPN...http://myname.com/catalog/checkout_succss.php and it still doesn't work.


Here's what I've done....

downloaded the oscommerce 2.2 milestone 2 paypal ipn payment module v1.0 file

copied it into the catalog

enabled IPN in PayPal


Am I supposed to be doing anything else?

IPN return url is:


If you use SSL:








Add catalog to path if applicable.

Your online success is Paramount.

That's what I had the first time that didn't work....



But I use a shared ssl. I didn't have the https in the url I tried. Would that make it so it wouldn't work? I do have a secure site just not my own certificate but a shared one.


If it try it again only using the https would that solve the problem?

Instant Payment Notification (IPN)  On

Instant Payment Notification (IPN) URL:  http://www.yourdomaingoeshere/checkout_success.php



Obviously you need the correct path for your checkout_success.php

I copied the checkout_success.php to my root so the url I typed in Paypal was:




and that works fine for me however you may need to https://www.mydomain/checkout_success.php instead of http://www.mydomain/checkout_success.php
