    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hi Soundloop and Jerry I am actually working on installing this mod myself. I am not 100% sure but I think I have read either in this thread somewhere or in the documentation for this mod that if an order is filled out on your OSC site and continues to PayPal.. then the order is logged in OSC.... But if the customer abandons the transaction before paying through PayPal the order will remain in OSC. I think the only way around this is to manually check both OSC and PayPal to see that the order shows up in both. If it is not in PayPal then I don't think you were paid.... and the order was not completed. I hope someone else can confirm this as I am still testing and installing this mod and don't have enough knowledge to give a final answer. I hope this has helped Eric B

    I just noticed that not only is the Tax not showing up in the PayPal emails but on the paypal sandbox site, when you are confirming your order... the taxes charged are not being displayed to the customer.. but they are added into the total amount charged.... IS this a problem with PayPals side, or OSC... if OSC is it this mod's coding or the way it is configured or is it something else? sorry for all the questions.. like I said I am stumbling through it all and any help would be appreaciated.. thanks so much for your time Eric B

    ifccnb I am not sure if this helps or not, as I am stumbling through all this myself... but I just asked for my private key and certificate from my host they gave me the following.... 2 different certificates... the code or whatever that is.. sorry I don't know the term for it yet... but both certificates appear to be in one file... the file extension for this is mydomain.com.bundle (So in answer to your question, I am not sure if you should be splitting the certificates apart or not... maybe someone in here can tell us...) Second, I was given another certificate.. all by itself... called mydomain.com.crt and I was given one key mydomain.com.key The thing that confuses me is that the files sent by my host don't have the .pem file extension.... My host told me the certificates and key are already on the server... but I don't see them anywhere on the server... probably because I am using a shared server and they are in an area I can't access... could this be true? In order to get this IPN Mod to work should I take each file above and rename the extension to .pem and then upload them to mydomain.com/catalog ? I am trying to figure out what extensions to use.... and what paths... for the configuration in the ADMIN... Any help would be GREATLY APPREACIATED... Thank you Eric B

    Hi Has anyone been able to answer my above post? When using the PayPal IPN Mod with the PayPal SandBox the emails sent out by PayPal are showing the correct totals for the orders ( price + tax + shipping) but on an individual break down it only shows the price and tax but the shipping amount is missing. Any ideas? Does the fact that I have tax zones set for shipping have anything to with this... In Canada we have to charge tax on shipping. Also, in the ADMIN area of OSC for Payment Mods... Under the PayPal IPN it says for my private key and certificate to use the extension *.pem However, my host has sent me the keys and certificate and they have different file extensions.... Furthermore, they didn't tell me where on the server they are located... I am using a shared / virtual server.. .but I bought a SSL Certificate... Do I need to know the path to these or can I just upload what then sent me into a directory in my OSC install and use those paths for settings in the config for this mod? Please help as I am not very good with this and I have been spinnin my wheels for weeks Thanks Eric B

    Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone is having the same problem as me. I am testing out the contribution in PayPal's Sandbox. When PayPal sends out emails to me the PayPal account holder and to the customer. The total amount of the order is correct (shipping, taxes, item price, and tax on shipping for Canada where I am located) However, When a breakdown of prices is shown the shipping cost is missing from the emails.... although the total amount charged by paypal is correct. I am worried that this will confuse customers. Does anyone know what is going on or is anyone having the same problem? Thanks Eric B

    Please forgive all my posts... I have one more question regarding this contribution. I downloaded the mod dated 30 Nov 2004 Then I downloaded the Error Correction dated 20 Dec 2004, for the file paypal_ipn.php First, I am sure the file in question is located in \catalog\includes\modules\payment Can someone confirm this? Second, what is the difference between these files? I am confused because the newer corrected file has a lot of extra line spaces / double spaced lines. Does this make a difference? Also, what is so different about these two files? What is this accidental line feed and where is it? Is it just the extra line feed located at the very end of the file? Thanks for your help in clearing this matter up. Eric B

    Ok so it is easier to install... that is great in my humble opinion, especially when I saw how much more there is involved with installing the other mod. But compared to the default install or the PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN doesn't this mod basically do the same as the others? Just curious and trying to make sure I make the right choice of mod to use. If they all do the same then this one looks like the winner to me. I would love your feedback on this. Eric B

    One more comment... I know prices can be changed at paypal but as a store owner wouldn't you check on this before actually sending out orders? I am sure most customers wouldn't do this. Although this might be a problem if you sell digital goods or memberships where instant access is given. Thanks Eric B

    Thanks Mibble, I actually have not worked with PayPal and OSC at all yet. I was just going to use the PayPal mod that comes with OSC 2.2 Then I did some research and found several modules. I wondered why so many and what is the difference. You are the first person to give me some insight. I definitely will read up more. My question is this mod seems to do just about the same thing as the PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN but this newer mod that this thread focuses on seems much easier to install. Am I correct in saying that they basically do the same thing but this one is easier to install? Do they both have secruity issues? And if so how serious are they? Thanks so much Eric B PS I want to say thanks to everyone for their hard work in developing and testing these mods and for everyone sharing their experiences and giving advice. I am glad to have joined such a great group of people and look forward to the day I can offer help too.... I am still stumbling through it all though... OSC PHP etc. Well thanks again and happy new year.

    I am not too sure why I have not heard back from anyone. If it is because it seems like I am being lazy and should have searched the forums and documentation first, it is not. I spent a few days going through the forums, and reading over the install readme file for this contribution. I am looking at this contribution and the PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN I am trying to figure out the difference between these two contributions and the original PayPal set up that comes with the OSC install. Can someone tell me the differences or where online I can read more about them? Thanks so much everyone. Eric B

    Hello, How does this module differ from the one that comes with the original OSC install? Thanks Eric B
  12. Thanks dreamscape... but I am not sure how to uninstall ... can you please tell me how... do I just disable the MRMT mod through my admin area of OSC? Thanks Eric B
  13. After you have this contribution installed, you have to login to your admin area... go to your product catalog... and click on each product.. then update the listing... you will see three new form fields for you to add the product description, keywords, and title for the header area of the product_info.php page that comes up for each of your products. Eric B
  14. I have another question. I am trying to change a site from the MTMR contribution to this MultiGeoZone mod. How do I upgrade? Do I just have to set the MRMT mod to false in my admin area or do I have overright files or delete files or change code in files? Thanks Eric B
  15. Does anyone know where I can download a zip file of this contribution? I don't have a program that will open a tar file. Thanks Eric B
