PayPal not sending orders emails out


Recommended Posts

I know this problem is always being brought up but I've searched the forums and I've not been able to find what I'm looking for.


The problem is that when customers purchase from my store and choose to pay via paypal they usually dont click the continue button at the end of the payment process so they are returned to my store.


Because of this I never receive their order, just their payment. I was wondering if there is anyway to receive the email about their order, BEFORE they are passed onto the paypal website?


Or maybe theres another way? If anyone could let me know, or just tell me what I need to search for then that would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

See contribution:





In either case this contribution fully supports PayPal's Instant Payment Notification

(IPN) program, which automatically updates the orders table when

it receives a vaild PayPal notification or when if indeed the

customer clicks continue and returns back to the site after making

their purchase.

Thanks, I've downloaded it but I cant get it working due to the need of myPhpAdmin. I can't install this and get it working. Is there any other similar programs?

You can install yourself myPhpAdmin in a password protected directory, only thing you must do is full in some MySQL Databasename, DataBase username and password before you can acces you database.


Normally your provider will give you myPhpAdmin acces!!


Without myPhpAdmin you have a limitation to explore and tunning OsCommerce.

I tried to upload it and added the db information, but the only information i have is my db name, host address, user name and password. The config file was asking for much more information than this...
