PayPal IPN- Shopping Cart Empty!


Recommended Posts

I just loaded all of the PayPal IPN files and made sure that they were all located in the correct place.


Unfortunately when I click on the "add to cart" button on the products_info page or on the "buy now" button, it just goes to my shopping cart with the message "Your Shopping Cart is empty!"


The code on the application_top page (which is one of the pages that gets changed when PayPal IPN is added) is:


// customer adds a product from the products page

     case 'add_product' :    if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_id']) && is_numeric($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_id'])) {

                               $cart->add_cart($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_id'], $cart->get_quantity(tep_get_uprid($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_id'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['id']))+1, $HTTP_POST_VARS['id']);


                             tep_redirect(tep_href_link($goto, tep_get_all_get_params($parameters)));


     // performed by the 'buy now' button in product listings and review page

     case 'buy_now' :        if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])) {

                               if (tep_has_product_attributes($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])) {

                                 tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id']));

                               } else {

                                 $cart->add_cart($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'], $cart->get_quantity($HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'])+1);



Is this what might be messed up?


Has this ever happened to anyone else?
