Tip for PayPal IPN

FWR Media

Recommended Posts

I had a major problem where virtually all of my PayPal sales were staying as PayPal IPN and not converting to "Pending" the reason being the customers were not clicking "Return to Merchant".


I added a little mod tonight and every single PayPal is being converted to "Pending" so I thought I would share it.


All it does is add some text above the confirm button before the customer is redirected to PayPal.




find ..


echo tep_image_submit('button_confirm_order.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_CONFIRM_ORDER) . '</form>' . "\n";


Add above ..


  if (strstr($order->info['payment_method'], 'PayPal')) echo '<div style="background-color: #fffafa; padding: 5px; align: center; border: 3px solid grey; color: red;">After you press the "PAY" button in PayPal, please ensure to click <br />"<b>RETURN TO MERCHANT</b>" or your order may not be updated!</div><br />';


Obviously change the style to your own if you wish.


If it helps anyone then it was worth the post.
