PayPal Listener IPN Queued

U Can Drive 16 May, 2016
I'm having some issues tweeting the PayPal Listenr App.
I'm using both the redirect and listener in sandbox mode with a sandbox PayPal account. But the IPN returns are taking too long. I'm over 24hrs later and the IPN's are sitting there Queue, there are two Retrying and one failed.

Why are coming straight back?
Why would they be failing?

Hi U Can Drive,

Sorry, I have no idea. It looks as though the majority have got through so the form Event is (or was) working. Do you have a DB Save or email (or a log file written) from the event that would let you see what is being received there?

Did you change anything in the last few days that might have made a difference to the response?

When I receive the IPN I have the app send me an email with the details from PayPal using the code
<?php
echo'<div>$form->data: '.print_r($form->data, true).'</div>';
?>
But the problem seems to be that they are just not sending them back quickly. I assumed that it would be an immediate response and am kind of hoping this is just a sandbox issue not a live one.

Do I need to have a field available for every field they send to me? At the moment I'm only set up with fields that are relevant to my system. Would that cause the fail? I imagine not as some of them have come through just fine.

Hi U Can Drive,

I take it from this that the problem is at the PayPal end - if so it's a question for them.

I would expect it normally to be an immediate response unless there is e.g. a delayed payment by the client with a bank transfer that takes a few days to clear. You should still get an immediate confirmation with a 'Pending' status.

Would you believe it's just randomly working now...

Hi U Can Drive,

Maybe the sandbox shut for the weekend?
