hi osc'ers

i've installed paypal, upgraded it via contribution #2679. the ipn test says it's working, but i want to test a purchase to see if i get the order back correctly as everyone seems to have that problem. when i check out it's live and i can't access the sandbox. i've changed the word 'live' in all my ipn files to 'sandbox' and it still isnt' working. any suggestions?

please and thanks

With sandbox You need to launch sandbox(creatinf sandbox account).

Then test.

 

better option is You are not aware of sandbox is to set a product of $1 value and test for completion.

 

It should work provided You have in Paypal profile IPN set to true and Your IPN is at proper place.

hi satish,

yes i have a sandbox account set up, but i didn't know about the $1 test item, i'll do that now. as for the ipn i'll check to see if it is set to true, but the ipn being in it's proper place, do you mean there is an ipn number i must add somewhere?

thanks

well first thing is IPN needs to be set to true.(As unless You get an IPN the updates will not happen).

 

This IPN uses some code trick to make sure that the request came from Paypal server by connecting to paypal on request to get a verification.

 

$1 test product You will need to create with shipping as free and chek if You want to test live.

 

I suggest Yuo place a file write code in IPN file and chek what was sent in IPN so that You can analyse further.
