PayPal IPN questions


Recommended Posts



I've installed the PayPal IPN contribution. Install went without a hitch. Now, where would one get the information for the following data fields? I've seen confusing/conflicting information


1. Your Private Key

The location of your Private Key to use for signing the data. (*.pem)


2. Your Public Certificate

The location of your Public Certificate to use for signing the data. (*.pem)


3. PayPals Public Certificate

The location of the PayPal Public Certificate for encrypting the data.


4. Your PayPal Public Certificate ID

The Certificate ID to use from your PayPal Encrypted Payment Settings Profile.


Also, if I have a commercial SSL (that I bought) is it necessary to also implement the use of the OpenSSL for payment done through PayPal? If not, good. If so, then how do I go about 'installing' the OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org/) to make sure payments done through the Paypal IPN are secure?


Any help is appreciated.
