PayPal IPN errors
« on: August 31, 2021, 23:57:30 pm »
Hello,
I'm not sure what can be done by this, but some of my orders (only some over the last day or so) are not being confirmed because the IP is not recognized as being from PayPal, when it is. I've confirmed payments were made for these orders. I understand this is probably PayPal not listing all IPs?
Here is my PayPal log for virtuemart:
Code: [Select]

I'm having the same problem but cannot see any way to switch off IPN tracking. I am using Joomla 3.10, VM v 3.8.8 and VM Paypal plugin v 3.8.8. PHP is 7.3.27.

Thanks for the reply. My VM-Paypal plugin (v3.8.8) has no options.

OK, I got it - the option is in VM and not in the Paypal plugin.
