Paypal ipn question..
« on: October 08, 2013, 06:00:36 AM »
Hello.
Currently i have been using coffecups cart program, with this i needed to log into paypal and add an ipn address, get a token if i remember correctly..

If i switch to AbanteCart cart will i need to edit the ipn inside paypal, or does AbanteCart cart also send a return address?

Many thanks
Carl

Currently AbanteCart does not work with IPN. I believe, address is returned using Express Checkout if it is used and customer is not registered. I am not sure if this helps your question.

Thankyou..
if someone pays via paypal and buys 1 item does the cart then get told that it needs to reduce stock quantity by 1?

Answer is yes, but stock tacking needs to be enabled on the product.

Why in the IPN address in paypal does it show as subscriptions.php for the root directory on my server when there is no such file?

Hello.
I may be wrong.. but i dont think Abantecart will insert anything into your paypal account, therefore it must be added manually if you want to put something in the ipn section in paypal.

also from a previous post it seems the ipn is not needed for abantecart anyway..

so the question would be..

1:where did you get the information you thought you needed to add to paypal ipn
2:is it possible that what you are seeing was added previously for a different cart system?

just a thought

Cheers
Carl

if i am understand correctly, does it mean only PayPal Express will return the order detail and not paypal standard ?

since I am also wonder where is the paypal IPN?

but when i see the paypal express, in case if customer doesnt select shipping address (for shipping cost), it will not still able to check out without shipping cost via paypal express.
