Paypal IPN

stikki , January 02 at 18:12


I am having trouble getting the PayPal listener to work for me.

I have the listener inside the on ipn event.

I have put an email at the start of the on ipn event, and at the beginning of the on verified, invalid and on error events in the listener

When I use PayPal in live mode, with the listener NOT in sandbox mode, the email from the on ipn event is fired, but none of the emails in the listener fire.

I have a final email after the on ipn block, which does fire and prints the form data - but I can't see anything wrong with it. The payments are going into the PayPal account.

Can anybody help me with this please?



HI Mikki,

The code appears to check for 'VERIFIED' in the cURL results returned from PayPal. Do you see that in the email info?




Thanks for the reply.

I know where to look now.
