    Still no answer-IPN and digital downloads

    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) Thanks! Todd
  2. 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: http://support.lunarpages.com/knowledge_bases/article/187 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 Todd

    Thanks Ted, if I don't get this to work I will edit the code. I am a little hesitant as it seems it would not be very secure/ the link could be distributed. The whole thing with Paypal IPN doing what it is supposed to is that the DL link would be encrypted. I appreciate your responses, this has been a long frustrating process for me. If anyone knows how to get the encrypted DL link to work, please post up the info :) Todd

    Thanks Ted! I did try Standard first, it didn't fill the bill for the downloadable content. I need to the transaction to be as close to instant as possible, which is why I am hoping to get paypal to send the encrypted download link upon payment approval. With IPN, I am going through the process and being forwarded back to the site but still not getting the download e-mail with the link. As the buyer I get an "order process" e-mail, and a "Receipt for payment" e-mail, but no DL link, or change to status if I return to the site. As the seller, I receive all of the notifications, but still need to manually change the order status manually(which is what I am hoping to eliminate) Thanks for responding, still could use a hand getting this functional :) Todd

    I don't want to be repetitive but I have posted several times about my issue in different parts of this forum, and haven't gotten a solution yet. I am a noobie to this, and I appreciate all of the help and suggestions, but am quite frustrated with IPN at this point. Can someone please help, I absolutely need this to be functional. Just tried changing Acknowledged and Completed order status to Pending and Delivered respectively, and changed Enable encrypted web payments to true, still having the same issue.

    Hey Satish, thanks for answering. Maybe I wasn't clear, the download works if I manually change the order status. So #3, yes the file is in the correct location. #4 I have set to 3 days, and 3 downloads, and if status is changed by me, it works as it should. All emails are sent to me as the seller, and all emails with the exception of a download link are sent to the buyer. Thanks for any help! Items 1 and 2 can be seen here:

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hey everyone, I have been struggling with getting IPN to work in conjunction with digital downloads. I just updated my install to osCommerce_PayPal_IPN_2_3_4_7 in hopes it would help, and it didn't. All parts of the transaction are working with the exception of the buyer being automatically sent a link to download the content upon approval of payment. If I go in and change the status manually everything works fine, but I would like for this to be automated so I don't need to be involved. All e-mails as buyer and seller are sent during a live transaction, but the status is not being changed, and e-mail with encrypted link is not being sent out. Please help, this has been holding me up for a while now. Thanks! Todd

    Paypal IPN-e-mail encrypted code?

    In my spare time I have been trying to get this up and running since November, is there anyone here that can help? I have seen several threads on similar topics with no real direction as far as an answer. If nobody can help, can anyone suggest a service or business that can help me get the last few steps implemented?

    Paypal IPN-e-mail encrypted code?

    More info: I am trying to sell downloadable content(I.E. video tutorials, files and other things of that nature). In order to have customers be able to DL content as quickly as possible I need for paypal IPN to send them an automated code upon approval of their payment as well as change the order status to enable the DL. I need for this to work so that there is no delay in the process. I have everything else working properly, but would like to not have to manually change the purchase status so that customers get a quicker experience. Hope this info is helpful in finding a solution, I am at a standstill with this. Thanks for any help!
  11. Have IPN installed on my site I went live with the site to test, and it is almost all working. Payment was received, notification of payment was sent to the buyer's account. What didn't happen: the order status didn't change, and an encrypted DL code wasn't sent to the buyer. Can someone please help me get this last bit working, I need to get this site up and running. I apprecaite any help you can offer. Todd

  13. Ok I had installed the IPN files in the proper directories back when I originally posted. Paypal IPN isn't listed in my administrators panel under payment modules? I have turned IPN on in my paypal profile. The notification url-I have read that it isn't necessary to put 1 in? So now how do I test to see if IPN is working? Thanks for any help! Todd
  14. Hello Satish, (anyone else reading) Been a while, I am back at this :) I have autoreturn on, all of my api credentials are in place. IPN, I am a little unsure what to do with this. Do I simply create a url for this to correspond with? Once paypal verifies everything do I still have to send out the encrypted code to the purchaser? I would like this to be automated if possible. Do I need to install another module for IPN? Thanks! Todd
