    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    It looks like I may have been experiencing a significant "lag" in the IPN response on the production Paypal server. I ran a couple of tests today and 2 of the transactions took over 20 minutes to change from "Preparing..." to "Pending". I'll keep an eye on this to see if I can detect a pattern or a particular time when it occurs most often. Thanks for the help! This is a great contrib!

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    I've installed the osCommerce Paypal IPN contrib and it works fine in the sandbox. When I switch to the production Paypal server and issue a transaction: 1. the user returns after making a payment, 2. the order confirmation email is sent and 3. the stock is updated appropriately (problems I had with the other Paypal IPN contrib), but the status is not set to "Pending". The status remains at "Preparing Paypal IPN" and an order history record is created, which the user can see. From the install doc, I gathered that if the transaction came back VERIFIED, the status was changed and a history record created. Otherwise, nothing changes (status or stock) and a history record is not created. Any clues or have I misinterpreted the doc?
