PayPal IPN?

Recommended Posts

Now, I DO know that once you have the Paypal IPN successfully installed, in the Payment Module in your Admin section, there is added a Paypal IPN selection that you enable to allow that to show on your storefront, just like you do any other Payment option. I missed that the first time I looked.

 

Do NOT have both regular Paypal, AND the Paypal IPN enabled.

 

It will show as Paypal IPN on your storefront, unless you change the wording, which I am going to do myself, and say that if you use the Paypal, additional signup is needed, and for Cash/Check options, and leave the Auth.net option for Credit Card Processing.

 

Hope that helps..

 

As far as the checkout necessary through the Paypal IPn ON the Paypal site, I BELIEVE it is whateveryourstoreurlis/checkout_process.php

 

Since no one else answered that yet.

 

Hope thst helps a little anyway


One of these days, I will actually understand what I just changed...

 

But reading the Manual DEFINATELY helps...

hi, recently i just added the paypal ipn v 0.981 for 2.2MS2 version ones

 

however, i ran into some admin problems and quite don't know how to fix these

 

these problems are occured when i clicked on transactions under the paypal ipn in oscommec admin area....

can anyone please state that steps by steps of installation, I would like to make sure, if i have done or missed some installations....please and thank you very much

 

1) Unpack the zip file to a temporary directory

 

2) Process the paypalipn.sql file. A good and secure way to process that file is using

  phpMyAdmin (http://www.phpmyadmin.net). You can also process it with the mysql console.

 

  The paypalipn.sql file has 2 insert lines that add 2 new orders_status.

 

  You should check 2 things:

  a) Since the new orders_status_id is 99999, you should make sure that you dont already have

      an order status with this id.

  B) The insert lines are made to add this new status in english and spanish, having ENGLISH as

      language_id=1 and SPANISH as language_id=3

 

3) There are two ways you can use to install the rest of the module files:

 

  a) OVERWRITE AND RUN WAY:

      You will find that version in the /overwriteandrun/ dir.

      All of the files are stored in the same directory structure as the default osCommerce package,

      so you should only copy each file in the right location.

      BE CAREFUL! Thats the best way to install for those with a fresh osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2

      install. If you have made modifications to the code, possibly you will loose them.

 

  B) HAND MADE MODIFICATIONS:

      You will find that version in the /handmademods/ dir.

      All of the files are stored in the same directory structure as the default osCommerce package.

      You will find some filename.txt files, that contains the changes you need to do to make the

      contrib work.

      The remaining files can be moved to their respective directories.

 

  I strongly advise BACKING UP your php files first.

 

4) Go to your osCommerce Admin, and activate PayPal IPN in the Payment Modules section.

 

IMPORTANT

 

1: Make sure you set up correctly the notify_url parameter in the Payment Module.

  This is done from your osCommerce Admin->Modules->Payment->PayPal IPN->notify_url

  By default it is prefilled with the "guessed" location of the paypal_notify.php file, but you

  have to make sure of that.

2: Actually the PayPal Multiple Currencies feature only accept payments in

  USD, EUR, GBP, CAD and JPY. When they accept more currencies, you can add them to the

  /catalog/includes/modules/payment/paypalipn.php file. Add the new currency to the

  $paypal_supported_currencies var.

3: On the PayPal IPN module configuration, be careful to not "Set Order Status" to "Paypal Processing" or your

  ordel will always stay on that status.

 

 

1. I upzipped the file

 

2. I created a table called paypalipn.sql by using phpMyAdmin...right?? Is this what you called process the paypalipn.sql file???

 

The paypalipn.sql file has 2 insert lines that add 2 new orders_status.

 

3. Yes i paste two which are

 

INSERT INTO `orders_status` VALUES (99999, 3, 'Procesando Paypal');

INSERT INTO `orders_status` VALUES (99999, 1, 'Paypal Processing');

 

 

You should check 2 things:

  a) Since the new orders_status_id is 99999, you should make sure that you dont already have

      an order status with this id.

  B) The insert lines are made to add this new status in english and spanish, having ENGLISH as

      language_id=1 and SPANISH as language_id=3

 

First i really don't know where to check orders_status_id is already 99999

 

 

then i chose the hand made modifications, and uploaded all the necessary files from the downloaded contribution file.....

 

and can't process to step 4) because i stopped at these problems, then i now only see transcations and send test ipn in my admin area....

 

please tell me what steps did i do wrong...or simply please explain in step by step details installation, sorry to ask for this, but i don't really know what else i can do to help myself :unsure: :(

 

I can only thank you very much!!

 

btw: this contribution is Paypal IPN V 0.981 on 2.2 MS 2

I am having a bit of a problem getting paypalipn to work...

 

I have:

 

  • made the necessary changes to the files via the handmade method
  • enabled ipn in my paypal account
  • copied the new files to their appropraite places

but when I send a test I get:

 

Error: no $paypal_response received.

so I tried making sure all the fields in the test have something in them and I get:

 

TEST IPN Processed for order #11064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1

 

delete from customers_basket where customers_id=

 

[TEP STOP]

 

 

I would really like to use this contrib but I can't get it working...


Contribs added:

AdminLogin-Catalog With Images-Credit Class/Gift Voucher-CoolMenu

EasyPopulate-LoginBox-Paypal Shopping Cart IPN-PDF Catalogs

Product Listing In Columns - Image Strip

For the benefit of the group I just wanted to post the cause/solution to the IPN problem I was having;

I had an apostrophy (') in the Store_Name which PayPal seemed to choke on.  Pablo made the change to my store name and it now seems to work beautifully!  If you are experiencing problems with PayPal accepting payment, but not processing the transaction on the cart end, be sure to cross this potential problem off the list!

Thanks again Pablo!

 

hi

im going to check this on my site! thanx for the post.

can you tell me where i actually find 'store_name' defined? which file?

thanx al

Just a quick question - is there any way that my customers can purchase without having to create a paypal account?

 

I think that many of my customers would just like to enter their card details without having to create an account with paypal.

Can someone give me an idea of how you filled out the PayPal IPN preferences?

I just need a real example of how you set it up. I'm a bit confused, some parts are obvious.

 

 

Enable PayPal IPN Module

TRUE

 

E-Mail Address

myemail@mysite.com

 

Transaction Currency

 

Payment Zone

 

Set Preparing Order Status

 

Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status

 

Gateway Server

 

Transaction Type

 

Page Style

 

Debug E-Mail Address

 

Sort order of display.

 

Enable Encrypted Web Payments

 

Your Private Key

 

Your Public Certificate

 

PayPals Public Certificate

 

Your PayPal Public Certificate ID

 

Working Directory

 

OpenSSL Location

 

Please help, I'm launching sometime in the beginning of the year. Thanks everyone!

Hi I am having a problem with the paypal IPN and the option type function. I have found a solution to the problem with the other paypal ipn but not this one.

 

What is happening is that when I use the option type function contruibution. I have a text box my customer can fill it out as part of the order. It works fine if they use cod but if they use paypal all I get is TEXT for the result.

 

 

Is anyone else getting this if so how did you fix it.

 

I really dont want to have to switch ipns to fix the problem

This might have been talked about before, but i didn't find no answer.

 

AFter they place or pay for an order, will the order they put in subtract from stock? Even if they don't hit the continue button?

 

They don't need to create account, correct?

 

thanks

 

any more info, before i start banging my head and installing it, LOL

I'm also having the same problem.... A real pain, because I'm using the regular PayPal Payment module for now, and even with instructions in three places, I still have about 20% of my customers NOT clicking the "return to merchant" button !!!! :( Any help would be GREATLY appreciated ...

if you are using the module that comes with osc go to paypal and check the settings, they have an automatic return now so the customer goes back whether they click a link or not and the order will show up in osc

 

if you put the checkout_success.php as the return url they will actually see the thank you for your order message as well. =)

I am not sure why it isn't giving your products name.

In your admin area, what are your settings for paypal?

I believe it says something like Return URL behavior at the bottom. I have mine set to 0. Not sure if that may make a difference or not for sending the information to paypal.

 

As for the payment to part.. have you set up all of your information in your admin area of your website and in the profile area on paypal?

I am having a problem with this mod, and I'm not sure if it's a common one?

 

All of my papal orders lack attributes. No sizes, colors, etc. come through, nothing that was set in the attributes section.

 

Anyone else have this problem and anyone know where to fix it?

Try This, Be sure to back up before changing any code, Open :

 

catalog/includes/modules/payment/paypal.php

 

Look for : function update_status() {

 

And Replace that whole block down to : return $process_button_string; }

 

With:

 

function update_status() {

global $order;

 

if ( ($this->enabled == true) && ((int)MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_ZONE > 0) ) {

$check_flag = false;

$check_query = tep_db_query("select zone_id from " . TABLE_ZONES_TO_GEO_ZONES . " where geo_zone_id = '" . MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_ZONE . "' and zone_country_id = '" . $order->billing['country']['id'] . "' order by zone_id");

while ($check = tep_db_fetch_array($check_query)) {

if ($check['zone_id'] < 1) {

$check_flag = true;

break;

} elseif ($check['zone_id'] == $order->billing['zone_id']) {

$check_flag = true;

break;

}

}

 

if ($check_flag == false) {

$this->enabled = false;

}

}

}

 

function javascript_validation() {

return false;

}

 

function selection() {

return array('id' => $this->code,

'module' => $this->title);

}

 

function pre_confirmation_check() {

return false;

}

 

function confirmation() {

return false;

}

 

function process_button() {

global $order, $currencies, $currency;

 

if (MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_CURRENCY == 'Selected Currency') {

$my_currency = $currency;

} else {

$my_currency = substr(MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_CURRENCY, 5);

}

if (!in_array($my_currency, array('CAD', 'EUR', 'GBP', 'JPY', 'USD'))) {

$my_currency = 'USD';

}

$xx = '';

for ($i=0; $i<sizeof($order->products); $i++) {

$xx .= $order->products[$i]['qty'] . '-' . ($order->products[$i]['name']) . '**';

}

$process_button_string = tep_draw_hidden_field('cmd', '_xclick') .

tep_draw_hidden_field('business', MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_ID) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('item_name', STORE_NAME . ' ' . $xx) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('amount', number_format(($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) * $currencies->get_value($my_currency), $currencies->get_decimal_places($my_currency))) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('shipping', number_format($order->info['shipping_cost'] * $currencies->get_value($my_currency), $currencies->get_decimal_places($my_currency))) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('currency_code', $my_currency) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PROCESS, '', 'SSL')) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('cancel_return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL'));

 

return $process_button_string;

}format($order->info['shipping_cost'] * $currencies->get_value($my_currency), $currencies->get_decimal_places($my_currency))) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('currency_code', $my_currency) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PROCESS, '', 'SSL')) .

tep_draw_hidden_field('cancel_return', tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL'));

 

return $process_button_string;

}

 

 

 

See if that works for you, Let me know.

Ok, I'm confused...

 

In OSC 2.2M2, a PayPal IPN Module is already installed. Should I use that one or one of the contributions below?

 

How does the installed IPN differ from the following (even more confusing) contributions:

 

PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN:

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

osCommerce PayPal IPN Module v1.0 For 2.2MS2:

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

PayPal_Shopping_Cart_IPN_v2.6a (addon only)

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

PayPal IPN v0.981 for Milestone 2

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

PayPal IPN Gateway for osCommerce

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

PayPal IPN

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...arch,paypal+ipn

 

HELP!

 

Thanks!

I found a bug with Paypal IPN installed.

 

If a customer type his credit card number in the cc field, and he regrets and choose paypal instead, then the entire credit card # is submitted with the order.

 

Are there any way to avoid this? I don't like storing a full cc# anywhere on my server.

Mike
