    Is anyone using PHP, Paypal and Instant Payment Notification?

    Hi... I'm trying to set up a simple script that interacts with Paypal's IPN, but I'm being a bit thick about it all.

    If anyone is using it, do you think you could post a copy of the file you use to verify the IPN? And include any other helpful tips on setting it all up?

    I've been through the Paypal help stuff, and I think I get it, but I always find it easier to see a working example (especially when you can only test it by doing actual live transactions which can get a bit messy!).

    Would be much obliged to anyone able to help me out. If you don't want to post it here on the forums, please PM or whatnot.

    Ta muchly

    I've made an IPN, but it never got executed for some reason.. even if I stuck a query or fopen to create a fil it never got executed. Somethign wrong on the paypal side no doubt. I can dig it out and post it, or try anyway.

    I too am trying to use IPN to populate a database field and am having major problems. Any help from anybody who has done it successfully would be greatly appreciated.

    I think PayPal do provide lots of article and even the sample on their Developer page.

    I did some code on IPN, it got executed but sometimes when querying PayPal server to verify the transaction, did not get any response so the script assume that the transaction was not have VERIFIED status.

    Anyway, still debugging it.....

    I think I got it working thanks to some help from a couple of people. There are some great websites out there too that really help... I have links to them on my other comp though

    Try www.paypalipn.com and http://www.google.com/search?q=paypa...utf-8&oe=utf-8
