How To Set Your PayPal IPN

    Is this a new setting? Seeing the date of this article being posted and the Paypal issues with SP leads me to believe this is a recent change or something that SP failed to advise that was needed.

    Also, why wouldn't you use https:// for sending info?

    Glad to see someone else was here recently, Clayton.

    We've started seeing long messages added to 'admin_comments' that look like: PayPal reported reason for Pending status: AuthorizationPayPal IPN received ...." With a long string of data pertaining to the customer. I'm guessing this is what Paypal send and SP would be listening for.

    Odd that we just started seeing this message appearing and never implemented the IPN system.

    Clayton has a good point, why isn't this listening URL HTTPS?

    No response from SP support or comments on this, no surprise.

    I turned it on via Paypal, but have turned it back off as it was nothing more than an annoyance to have all the Paypal IPN message in the comments section and it doesn't appear to have any effect on the Paypal payment or order status.

    That being said, SP still hasn't fixed all the Paypal problems with the issue being the latest SNAFU that they can't figure out.
