paypal website payment standards - where is ipn.php?

Recommended Posts

quoting 'airbrushmaster' from Jan 29 2009, post 1363275

Set the return URL to http://<your website>/catalog/ipn.php

 

Hello - Great instructions for Paypal Website Payment Standards, except the above "return URL" has me perplexed. My store is in root, so I assume that would be http://mywebsite/ipn.php.

 

That file does not exist in the root directory, nor can I find it elsewhere. Is it something that I have to create, and if so, can you help with the php code (I'm a newbie and can usually follow instructions on contributions with cutting and pasting, and have EXTREMELY limited html experience)?

 

Also, can anyone answer this? The paypal account being used for this oscommerce site also accepts payments for other sites, but on no other sites do we use the "return to site" or a return to the site's specific URL. This shouldn't mess up allowing payments to be sent from 'buy it now' and other such payment options from other sites, should it?

 

Thanks for any help, especially about the ipn.php.

 

Also, I've seen directions to put paypal notification URL to return to both http://<your web site>/catalog/checkout_process.php AND /catalog/checkout_success.php. Which is correct?
