Hi everyone,

What is the difference between paypal and paypal IPN built in payments modules?

 

And why should i use paypal contribution instead?

IPN stands for Instant Payment Notifcation and refers to the fact that paypal notifies your shop as soon as payment is made. Without it, a customer can make payment and not return to your shop, in which case you would never know the order was completed.

Thanks for your reply Jack

I have been trying to post those questions for the 3rd time.

It looks like no one really knows the answers for the paypal subject.

 

Is there any need of the regular built in paypel?

what advantages the paypal contribution has over the built in IPN?

 

Thanks

No.

This is sort of a trick questions since the IPN version isn't built-in, unless you are using the RC1 or RC2 shop.
