Order Processed But No Paypal Payment ?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I run an ebook online web store using OS commerce which customer could download the ebook immediately once their payment is made, i have implemented the Paypal IPN module in my store.

 

Recently I noticed there are a few orders which were captured by OScommerce BUT I didn't see any related paypal payment in my paypal account.

 

Does that mean there were hackers came to my site , download my ebook illegally without making any paypal payment ?

 

Another oscommerce user told me he also faced the similar problem for his ebook web store, he told me once the hacker gets through paypal and returns to the site then, yes, the ebooks are available to download for the hacker but when he checked his webstats, NO files had been downloaded by the hackers. So, i am not sure whether what he said is true.

 

Is this a flaw in the Paypal IPN ? Is there any fix for this flaw ?

 

thanks

 

cheers..cy

Download contribution checks the status tha you have set to allow download.

Depending on the status a person who visits your site can hack.You need to set it for a proper payment status.
