PayPal Website Payments Standard - settings on Paypal website

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

I've spent several hours researching this topic, however I'm no further ahead (well maybe a tiny bit)...

 

I'm running PayPal Website Payments Standard on osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 RC2a.

 

The module is running and working properly, and I am able to receive payments. However, I am not sure my PayPal settings are correct for this module.

 

 

Specifically, under PayPal>Profile>Website Payment Preferences

 

Auto Return is ON and the URL is http://www.xxxx.xxx/checkout_success.php - Do I need it for PWPS?

 

Payment Data Transfer (optional) IS ON, followed by a Hex Token - Do I need it for PWPS?

 

 

 

Under PayPal>Profile>Instant Payment Notification Preferences

 

Instant Payment Notification (IPN) On

Instant Payment Notification (IPN) URL: http://www.xxxxx.xxx/checkout_success.php

 

Do I need it 'On' and is it pointing to the right URL (for PayPal Website Payments Standard Module)

 

 

I should also say that about 15 minutes after each order, we get a hit to /ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php which results in another confirmation of the order being logged. From what I can tell, if the user returned to the web site from PayPal- there will be two confirmation entries on the order, and if they didn't... there will be only one.

 

 

 

 

Any Help is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I don't recommend to use the PayPal Website Payments Standard, as you will get problems with it. Try PayPal IPN contribution.


Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.

Thanks Alex. Please forgive my ignorance, but I see a lot of posts from folks having problems with the PayPal IPN contribution as well. Is it more 'stable' than PWPS?

 

Assuming you are referring to http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2679

 

which version is stable?
