Quick PayPal Question


Recommended Posts

Apologies in advance for my ignorance - this is my first post...


New store, UK based. Will be using RBS Worldpay, but also going to offer PayPal Website Payments Standard.


My question: As well as activating and setting up the PayPal Website Payments Standard module from within the admin, do i, or should i, also install the "PayPal IPN" Contribution?


Thank you in advance.

They both do the 'same' job, the "PayPal Website Payments Standard module" is the 'official' one (made by paypal?) whereas "Paypal IPN" is the community one.


I got very frustrated with the 'official' one and it is my impression that most people ditch it in favour of Paypal IPN which actually does things PROPERLY! (The official one doesnt even seem to use the IPN and you must have the user return to the store for it to work).
