PayPal IPN


Guest

Recommended Posts

I have been unable to get the IPN payments and return URLs working together. Two questions:

 

1. I need to know what URL to specify for the auto return in PaPpal. In the forums some replies say "checkout_success.php" and others say "checkout_process.php". Which is correct????

 

2. AND, what URL do I specify for the IPN return in the "Instant Payment Notification Preferences" section of PayPal? I have seen some indication in PayPal that it should be " .../catalog/ext/modules/payment/paypal/ipn.php". I say this because that is where the code "cmd=_notify-validate" is located that PayPal instructions specifies must be in the catalog.

 

Please help and thanks in advance!!

No, wrong, you don't need to do anything with auto return settings in PayPal, as you are using PayPal IPN contribution

 

AND, what URL do I specify for the IPN return in the "Instant Payment Notification Preferences" section of PayPal?

again you don't need to modify anything PayPal account.

 

URL is automatically generated in php script & activate the IPN for every session.

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

Please do not get me wrong but I simply do not understand why many forum replies say that these URLs must be set to get the order completed. I am experiencing instances where the customer apparently does not click on the "return to store" button and therefore no order process email is sent to the store or to the customer and the order remains in the customer's cart. The store always seems to receive payment notification but not necessarily email from osC.

 

Are you saying that nothing needs to be turned on or activated within the PylPal account?

 

Apparently there is much confusion as to what is really required to complete the orders within osC.

 

Thanks,

Don
