Still no answer-IPN and digital downloads


Recommended Posts

I've asked this question here several times over the past 5 months, and still haven't received an answer that fixes the problem.


I have Paypal IPN installed, have everything set according to the info found here:



Please read carefully as I have gotten answers before that are not to the question I have asked.

All parts of the transaction are working with the exception of the sending of an encrypted download link to the customer upon approval of payment. If I go in and change the order status manually the transaction is finalized and the customer can sign in and Download. I prefer to have this automated(and according to what I have read it should be that way).


So, can someone please help me to get this up and running. This project has been on the backburner for a while, I would like to focus on getting it operational. I have to say I am frustrated with the osc support forum, I see a lot of unanswered questions, and have received inquiries/ e-mails from people experiencing the exact problem I am having. I appreciate that this is a free contribution, but without some sort of active feedback, this IPN contribution is useless for Digital Downloads.


If no-one can answer my question, can someone offer an alternative to hosting/selling digital downloads?


I apologize for my attitude in this post, but my service provider sends me here when I inquire about the issue, and when I come here I end up with no solutions. It is quite possible the problem is due to my inexperience, but I though that is the purpose of this forum, to help the user.

I am also willing to pay/hire someone to get this to work if there is anyone here with experience with this situation specifically.


Thank you for any assistance you can offer.



Frustratedly yours

See if THIS might work?


Thanks h2oHOH! I am going to install ASAP.


In the meantime I got ipn to work! I also had Express checkout installed, I noticed that the status was saying pending even though I didn't have pending in the IPN settings. So I looked further and found that express checkout had pending set, and was taking priority when the sale was going through. Disabling Express checkout fixed the problem! Over the time I was trying to get this working I must have made an error(noobie)
