I wanted to know the advantages of the Paypal IPN compared to the regular PayPal module. And if someone can give me a short explanation of making the required changes using phpmyadmin. Thanks in advanced! :)

Hi John

 

With the regular PayPal Module, if a customer don't hit the Continue button after the payment, you will have problems to identify which things he buy in your site.

 

The PayPal IPN Module, makes use of the IPN (Instant Payment Notification) feature of PayPal, that sends a notification to your server as soon as a payment is made to your account.

 

The module stores the order with a temp status, so you can always see the order in your admin, it does not matter if he hits continue or not.

 

Sometimes, PayPal payments gets a "pending" status (because of international accounts, or other reasons), and so with the module, you and the customer will be notified when the payment finally gets an COMPLETED status.

 

You should give it a try :wink:

 

About the installation with PHPMyAdmin, you should only run the paypalipn.sql script and the SQL Box.
