PayPal not returning to the site as expected


Recommended Posts


I'm working on a friend's osCommerce store, trying to setup a PayPal payment option. In osC 2.2 (not the RC, an older version), there is a payment module name "paypal", which is the one I'm trying to install. I've seen in the contributions and on PayPal's website that there is a "PayPal IPN" module (although I'm not sure both versions are the same one).


While trying the PP sandbox with a test order, I made the payment through their site. After paying, I wasn't automatically sent back to the store, although the "autoreturn" option is set in the PP account settings. I had to manually click on a "return to site button". I think there's a first problem here. Worse : after being sent back to the store, I ended on the login.php file, being logged out of the store. When reloging, my cart was still full and the order had not been processed by osC.


I'm wondering if PP made changes that rendered the osC default PayPal module obsolete (it is dated from 2003) and I have to setup the PayPal IPN module (which will be a pain due to the modifications that have been made on the store from a standard osC install), or if my problems only come from bad settings somewhere.


Any ideas ?
