Paypal IPN question

Recommended Posts

Hi, just 2 quick question...

 

1) Paypal module vs Payapl IPN module? What is the difference?

 

2) for Paypal IPN module: after checking out and going to Paypal screen, if you cancel, i.e. by closing the window, it does not register that the order has been cancelled. It states the order as Pending or whatever. Is there a way around this?

paypal ipn is much better. reason states it is pending means the customer went to paypal but did not finish the checkout for some reason or the other, they could have been disconnected, etc. it is to let u know something has happened. much safer than the original paypal module.

there are separate contribution support threads for paypal ipn, post the questions in those threads. every contribution has a support thread, post in them, youu will get more/better responses.

Simple paypal module relies on customer completing the whole cycle.Most of the customers just complete the paypal part and do not think of going further.

 

IPn is INstant Payment notification that [aypal sends as a backend notification to the url we state.So this way the dependency on customer completing the cycle is taken care of.

So IPN is a better option and ine should go for it.
