SOLVED: What is the PayPal IPN url?
« on: August 12, 2017, 15:35:51 pm »
I can't seem to find any reliable info on what the PayPal IPN url should be. Is this listed anywhere (for the various versions of VM - because the url it seems to have changed over the years)? Thanks!

It is listed on the PayPal technical support site. And I think I have published the actual URL in a thread here some time ago.

No, I mean what is the url I have to enter on PayPal's site in the IPN area? It's obviously a url from my website, but I can't find anywhere what it should be.

You should not need to enter ANY URL in the PaYpal website regarding IPN.

The notify URL - is sent as part of the PayPal transaction.  Any url you enter will not be used by PayPal for VM

Hmm, so you just turn IPN off? (If I turn it on, they require a url - screenshot attached).

Apologies, I was not clear.

You need to turn it on.

And yes (annoyingly) you have to put some URL to save it - So just put any URL e.g. your mainpage.

It will not be used because VirtueMart sends the correct IPN URL in the transaction.
