PayPal IPN - Which version / installation guide


Jayson Wonder

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I cannot got get paypal to update my orders in osc so I figure based on reading here that I need to try IPN..... This all seem quite complicated. I wish there was a simple smooth process to mae paypal work.

 

I looked at the IPN contributions but I sill am lost. I see they have 1.4 there but when I donw load it there are is only 1 file. I am not sure if I need to install an oler version first if so which one.

 

Please can someone tell me clearly how and what I must do to get Paypal to work, with orders sent to OSC.

 

I have tried to search and read contributions but I only get more confused,. Surely there is a simple, clear step by step way to make this work

 

Thanks in advance.

I see how that could be confusing. I assume this was the page you were looking at:

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2679

 

The v1.4 that you downloaded only has an updated file in it. /include/modules/payment/paypal_ipn.php

 

Download the latest one that Terra uploaded. It has everything. If you want you can replace the the file thats in 1.4 with the one thats in 1.3. It says theres bug fixes.

Other great Open Source (Free) programs: (Free as in free speech not free beer)

The Gimp - An image program. | Firefox - All you have to do is add the Web Developer add-on to make this web browser complete. | FileZilla - An ftp program. | Inkscape - A good program to create images with. | Thunderbird - An email program. | Openoffice.org - An office suite that is compatible with MS Office. | Abiword - Another office suite. | Audacity - A sound recording tool. | ddp's Picks | Wordpress - An easy to use blogging software. | Joomla - An easy to use CMS that has ecommerce plug-ins. | Drupal - Another CMS

How do I find these programs? Google Search!
