PayPal IPN


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I installed the paypal ipn contrib and it does just the job for those merchants who insist on using paypal.


I'm trying to clear something up now however, am i correct in thinking that prior to the customer making the purchase with paypal the order will get submitted into the paypal processing catgeory? then when the order has been paid they get transfered to the orders table - but, only if the client returns to the my shop? If the customer closes the window down then the order stays in the payapl processing category for manual confirmation?


I'm hoping my interpretation of that process is correct.


However, i've recently had two orders whereby no payment notification has arrived from paypal, and no money has been paid into the account. Am i now correct in thinking here that this is due to the customer having not made the payment?


Taking this one step further, i've noticed that paypal have altered their payment pages slightly, and as such (and i'm not a big paypal user so if i'm incorrect i appologise) there is now an additional "make payment" button on the page after you enter your credit card details, if my assumption here is correct, could this possibly be a reason as to why they two payments have not been made?


I'd appreciate any feedback as i'm getting totally confused trying to work out what is happening.


Many thanks in advance
