    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Well, I'm about to give up with this module. I can't fix this error, I'm wasting too much time trying to get this going. The tech support at my hosting company has been useless about OsC (even though they installed it!). So far the original paypal set-up in OsC is doing just what the module is doing. The original one is working without the error though. And I can't see spending all this money on SSL certificates right now if it's not going to fix this issue. I have 1 more question. Is there nothing in PayPal or the OsC files that I can alter so that the shop owner receives an exact copy of the receipts that the customers are getting? The product info is obviously getting through PayPal as the customers are getting detailed receipts. It is also showing up in the admin panel under orders. I just need this info to be e-mailed to the shop owners. That's it, that's all, should be this complicated. What do I need to do? :(

    PAYPAL / CREDIT CARD PAYMEMT

    I'm having the same problem. Were you able to fix yours and how? I did like RikR and used my host cpanel to get the certificates so I don't know what's going on. Out of curiousity, RikR, who is your hosting company? Asking because I'm going by your sample set-up and need to know how much I need to alter the paths.

    1 one question. In the sandbox it says What the heck do I do with these files?

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Ok, figured that part out, got my Certificate ID. But when I try to check out (live) I get the following error: Some required information is missing or incomplete. Please correct your entries and try again. If I hit the continue button it takes me into paypal, where the entire transaction is lost. It is still in OsC though. Here is what I have in the admin panel: I finally get this far, had my fingers crossed and now this. What could I be doing wrong?

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hi everyone, Thanks to RikR for showing me this thread (which would not come up on search, I looked and looked), I have made some progress. I am having trouble getting my Your PayPal Public Certificate ID from PayPal. I understand I need to upload a .pem file first? I tried to save my certificate as a .pem file in notepad (yes, checked the file extension) but PayPal refused it. Am I using the wrong file?

    I'll offer server space too. Anything to get this up and running without so much confusion. I know a lot of you were able to get it all going with no problems, and many of you were able to get it going after fixing a few server issues... but I am one of the small percentage who just cannot get the module to work. For dummies like me, have the oscommerce and the paypal ipn module already configured would be a Godsend. Especially if it had an easy tutorial to go with it that covered both pieces of the software. I chose oscommerce over other pieces of similar software because it had a handy dandy installation process that didn't require a lot of coding (that I would undoubtably mess up being new to php and mysql). There are so many great modules for oscommerce but after trying 3 (paypal ipn, downloads controller, and template) and failing at all 3 I feel like I've done more behind the scenes work than I would have if I had tried something else. 4 months is a long time to spend on one piece of software. This is such a great product (if I could get it to install finally) and I'll be so happy once it's up and running like it seems to doing for almost everyone else here. If I can help others by offering server space, I'm all for it. Especially since I can't (yet) help out with any expert advice.

    I just tried this suggestion, didn't work for me. Still no IPN and now my return page isn't working (will fix that back). This is so frustrating. :(

    Still no IPN and getting a blank test page. Searched through the forum and seems a lot of people have this problem. I tried every piece of advice I could find and still can't get it work. Then spent over an hour in PayPal's site viewing IPN tech notes (and I learned a lot). Now I have a stupid question.... in PayPal (not oscommerce) when you set up the IPN and have to give a URL, what URL do you give? Your domain name, a specific page from the oscommerce catalog? Hoping it's something that simple to fix this. I don't know what else to try. I haven't even gotten started on trying to get the files people purchase to download for them. 3 months working on this thing to set it up. I feel like a 5-yr-old in high school trying to do algebra while my brain will only take in 1+1. I'm not totally illiterate, just new to php and mysql and oscommerce. I'd do straight html PayPal (like I have been for 2 yrs) but I need my customers to be able to download their purchases without me having to intervene for every purchase. :huh: Please, please, take pity on me and offer advice if any of you have overcome this little obstacle. I have a lovely horizontal bruise from banging my head against my desk for so long. :blink:

    Hi Greg. :) Ok, just to clear up in case I'm having a blond moment.... I do the test page by creating a customer and then checking out? Or by using John Doe? Can't use John Doe, need to log on or create an acct and don't know Mr. Doe's password. So I created a new customer and checked out and that's where the no IPN problem comes up. So until I get the IPN # I can't run the test page? Or is that incorrect? I know this test is supposed to be simple but I'm overlooking something. Bumping for advice. and yes, got a blank page when I ran the test. Any suggestions?

    Forgot to say, yes, I get a blank page if I run the test. I don't have any order or IPN number to test with. No transaction number, no PayPal customer details whatsoever show up.

    Hi All. Greg, I'm lost again. :( Took your advice and reinstalled everything (and I PRAY I can just move my products from the backup database to the new one or else there goes 3 wks of work).... did a clean install of oscommerce and the paypal module. Got it working great, no problems (which is amazing for my low tech sql skills) but I can't get the test page to work. No IPN in the order. My order goes through just fine but in my order history all I get is "No IPN history available" and there are 0 orders listen under Admin > Customers > PayPal IPN. I set up IPN with PayPal. Just 2 little changes right? Check the IPN enable box and type in my domain (do I type in the subdomain since my store is in a folder and not in the main html folder?). What do I do? Everything is working great. Adding members, checking out, sending e-mails. Just this IPN issue. Thanks for any advice and BTW you owe me an e-mail, Greg. :)

    Thank you for responding. :) Checked and double-checked my configurations and can't find what I'm doing wrong. Am live, able to purchase items ok, but no IPN numbers are showing up in the orders or PayPal section. And still can't get the download thing working either. So either these modules are clashing or I am overlooking something simple from staring at it for so long.
