Paypal Payments Standard - return IPN

Recommended Posts

Hi I am configuring Papal Payments Standard using this guide:

 

 http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/331996-how-to-setup-paypal-website-payments-standard/

 

I am posting it here because last post there is 2+ years old...

 

there are steps needed to be done at Paypal Site

 

 

 

9. The notification URL should be http://<your web site>/catalog/checkout_process.php
10. Save the page then go to Profile>Website Payment Preferences
11. Turn on Auto Return
12. Set the return URL to http://<your website>/catalog/ipn.php

 

I do not have /catalog/ipn.php :(

 

should it be set to:

 

/catalog/ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php ?

That's all it has there - no instructions on what ipn should point to!   Instant

 

 

Payment Notification

All orders processed through PayPal Payments Standard are verified by a separate call PayPal automatically performs when an order has been processed. PayPal sends an Instant Payment Notification (IPN) to your store with the order information which is then verified and logged with the order.

The results of the verification are logged in a private order status that can be seen when viewing the order.

 

So where IPN on the paypal site should be set up to point to??

 

and where do return Url should point to ???

You don't need to enter the IPN url in your PayPal account settings - a url is already passed to PayPal with the transaction which PayPal uses to send the IPN to.

 

The only settings you need to verify in your PayPal account is have Payment Data Transfer disabled and the language encoding set to your store encoding (by default UTF-8).

 

PayPal Profile -> Selling Preferences -> Website Payment Preferences -> Payment Data Transfer -> Off

PayPal Profile -> Selling Preferences -> Language Encoding -> More Options -> UTF-8

 

The Test API Server Connection link should also be used to confirm if your server can verify PayPal's SSL certificate when transactions are performed. If the test fails, set the Verify SSL Certificate module parameter to false and inform your hosting provider that you would like your web server environment updated to work with the SSL Certificate verification enabled.

if I understand you correctly:

 

Customer puts items into the cart, checks out, and gets forwarded to paypal and makes a payment, then he "CLOSES THE WINDOW WITHOUT CLIKING" return to website link (my website). The oscommerce installation order record WILL still get updated as paid?

 

Sorry for the caps.

Having the same issue, if the customer does not click return to site, regardless of my settings of automatic return, they nor I ever receive an order email.

 

I would use PayPal express and avoid the whole thing, but my discount codes, and other things do not work, and I dislike the Paypal express button displayed on every product page.

 

Any ideas what we can do???
