PayPal IPN 0.96 problem


Recommended Posts

Have installed PayPal IPN 0.96 with new checkout. It doesn't seem to be fully working for us, I don't know why.


Orders can be placed and processed, however, OSC doesn't seem to recognize it fully. After going through PayPal and even hitting Continue, a confirmation email is sent to the customer, but not to us. Also, the order does not show up in the admin IPN orders. It shows up in the regular orders section, but lists it as "PayPal Processing", even though it actually went through (shouldn't it say "received"?). Finally, the shopping cart is not emptied when returning to the OSC side.


Any help?

If it's any help, I was getting a Payment Failed indication before. I edited checkout success as you indicated in this post:




That fixed the Payment Failed problem, but I"m still not getting the rest of it like the other poster at the end of that thread.

Hey great!


It seems it was the problem with cURL...


Thats the only thing I touched...


It also seems like PayPal is having some kind of delays posting the IPNs... the transactions gets recorded many minutes after you make the payment...


It should be INSTANT!


Well, its working now... tell me if you see any other problem!


Best regards

Hey Pablo,


I too am experiencing IPN delays lately, just to let you know.


Looks like this may be an issue on PayPals side.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

With Paypal IPN, the orders are captured in the cart, I recieve the notification from Paypal that I've recieved the cash. I proceed to the admin and print out the packing slip - no problem. I can't see the transactions in the admin paypal ipn module but as I've been able to have the orders in the admin and know I'm getting paid, it hasn't been any problem.


The problem only arises now because I installed the gift voucher module - because the orders aren't captured in the Paypal IPN admin section, it doesn't let a gift voucher show up in the Gift Voucher admin section either... Of course I'm able to send the gift voucher manually through the admin section but I can't release it through that same section. I know it's Paypal cause it only has happened with the Paypal orders.


Can you tell me how to fix this - cURL? I need the transactions to show in the Paypal IPN section.

I changed the text to show the customer "Paypal" instead of "Paypal IPN" on the checking out pages. And deactivated the old paypal module. However now whenever I reach the page where they need to click "Confirm Order", it simply refreshes back to the same page, instead of proceeding on to the paypal page. What did I do wrong? Prior to the name change, it worked fine. But isn't it just a text change?

Hi Celtic


From where do you changed the text?


Best regards
