Passing Order Information to Paypal


Recommended Posts

I have been reading through the forums, and I am hoping that someone might be able to help me get a straight answer to a question.


I have a client that wants the order information to show up in Paypal whenever someone purchases something from his site. He uses the Paypal invoice and receipt system as his main source of order tracking. He does not want to have to confirm order details back and forth between OS Commerce and Paypal-he simply wants to have an order go from his shop to Paypal and to use Paypal as his SOLE source of invoicing and receipt tracking (allowing him to see what was ordered from his shop in his Paypal transaction record.)


In the default installation of OS Commerce, there is little to no order info passed to Paypal. I have been reading about the Paypal IPN, but I'm unsure if this is the right solution for this problem. Is the IPN the best way to pass order info to Paypal during the transaction process, or is there another way I've not located yet?


Thank you for your help.
