    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    You're welcome, Andrea! I'm leaving the e-mail line out on my installation because if the e-mail matches what PayPal has in their database, it forces a PayPal login process. I wanted to give my customers the option of using a new e-mail address or skipping the PayPal login. I was also parsing the phone number -- which is a can of worms for international users -- when I discovered the phone number is also a PayPal trigger for forced login. Hopefully, PayPal will eventually learn to be happy with their transaction and discount fees and let us use them as a true payment gateway. I've looked for a contribution using the pure PayPal API, but haven't found one. Is anoyone aware of an API module/hack to do the whole transaction entirely on our own site? -- k.

    Make sure the no_shipping line is set to zero: I just bought something on our store and checked the PayPal merchant history: Maybe there's a cookie problem with some users? Anyway, it works for me (knock wood) and I can live with this until MS3 is released. I'll probably tinker with the IPN stuff a bit more to make it more tightly integrated, but I'm hanging back to see what the core osC team does first.

    Yes, there is. I wrote a code snippet that does this because it was driving our customers crazy. I'm calling it the PayPal Form Prepopulator (PFP) :D and you can download the code here, or just copy/paste is from the text below. Enjoy!
