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.

That's great, but I have heard that the name has been changed from PayPal IPN to PayPal Standard. So if it's true do I use the newest version of PayPal Standard or the newest version of PayPal IPN?

 

Thanks

I am using oscommerce-2.2rc2a and I installed the osCommerce PayPal IPN contribution. This is not the stock module - PayPal Website Payments Standard (WPS). I read somewhere that the old PayPal module has been replaced by PayPal WPS.

 

Maybe you should try the stock module first, PayPal WPS. It is supposed to have the IPN feature built in to it.

 

I am having problems with the OSC PayPal IPN. It does not always send the invoice number over to PayPal, so, when it does not I may get paid but I do not receive an IPN or rather it cannot be received properly. Some say it might be because register_globals are turned off and then I have been instructed to turn it On. Codewise, this is taking a step backwards. For best security purposes, register globals must be turned off. Even when I turned it on I had the same problem.

 

Therefore, maybe try the stock module first. I installed OSC PayPal IPN contribution only because I thought the stock module PayPal WPS did not have the IPN feature. I downloaded the stock module so I could read the Readme file. Here is what it says on page 6, "The orders status will be updated to this value when the Instant Payment Notification from PayPal is received and the order has been verified." So, PayPal WPS has the IPN feature.

 

Good luck.

Alan, can't thank you enough for communicating this. I installed the stock WPS, then installed the IPN mod, then uninstalled stock WPS. I think I'll reverse that again.

 

Sorry to hear about the invoice #. Hope you get it figured out. At present, my shipping charges aren't being displayed when buyer logs into Paypal (sandbox), but it is correct at site and in confirmation. It's always something ...

 

 

best,

Terri
