Okay, I have installed the contents of Paypal IPN 1.4 to my server. First of all is that all I need? This is a new install of osC and I am just now installing this module.

Second, I have no idea what I am supposed to put in the following places located in the Admin>modules>paypal IPN edit

 

Your Private Key

 

Your Public Certificate

 

PayPal's Public Certificate

 

Your PayPal Public Certificate ID

 

The public certificate ID that PayPal should use to decrypt the encrypted order data.

 

The working directory to create temporary files. (All created files are automatically deleted when no longer needed)

 

Can someone please help me, I have no clue here! Thank you so much!

You need a paypal account. The fields you mention are not required and can be left as they are. The instructions explain what they are for if you want to use them.

I have a paypal sellers account. And the instructions don't really say anything about those fields. I have no idea where to find them. Also, do I need to set the Enable Encrypted Web Payments to true or false? Sorry, I am just new to all this oscommerce stuff. Thank you for your help!

you can safely leave those values just the way they come (default).

 

As for all online shops, you should have SSL installed anyway, either a shared (free) one by your host or buy a full certificate (dedicated IP required)

By default they are blank? Also, I am using Yahoo as a host.

rumour says oscommerce and yahoo do not mix well ... maybe start an extra post on this? I have never tried it so I cannot confirm.

 

yes, leave blank fields in the lower section just as they are

ALso I was wondering, do I just leave the other paypal module installed and it sorts itself out? DO they work together?

no, the old paypal module is not worth anything. I tend to even remove the file from teh module folder. Who needs lost orders, definitely not me.

So I should just uninstall it? And I am having another problem, thank you for helping me by the way! I am trying to place an order and it keeps telling me there is a problem with my email address when I try to create an account, it is the email address I use everywhere else so... Any ideas?

uninstall is a must, but like I said I'd even remove the file so noone accidentally installs it.

 

what is the email error message?

:-)

I fixed it just now, I had to set the validate part in the create_account.php to true, but thank you so much! You have really helped!
