Paypal IPN (instant payment notification) on 2 different sites ?

7 replies
Hi,

I am having difficulties understanding how I can use paypals IPN functions on two different
sites. There is only one field for the notification url ? (I have a newly created business account).

I found this link which I thought explained it but it doesnt mention selling from different sites ?

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...emails-outside

What have I missed ?

  • You haven't missed anything. You really only get one IPN slot per account.

    Also, you can only register and hold one Personal Account and either one Premier or one Business Account, thus you are limited to 1 or 2 IPNs.

    If you had a separate legal business entity (company) for each Business Account then you could have done it.

    I believe there may be some code in existence created by some folks that allow you to get around it, however if you find anything like that online, use them at your own risk as it may be against Paypals policy.

      Doing that isn't against their TOS. In fact, a lot of popular billing systems have it built into them to handle the IPN without you having to add the URL into PayPal. But they still recommend you enter it at PayPal as a precaution in case the script has a problem sending the correct URL to PayPal.com

    The one IPN URL you see is the DEFAULT IPN handler.

    When you create a buy now or subscription button you can add what url you want as the IPN url to the extra variables. You can have each button point to different IPN urls as needed.

    use notify url parameter, it will act like a paypal ipn for each payment form.

    You could do some coding and have the one ipn slot go to a script first that then passes the info onto the site you wanted it to.

    But it's a bit more complex that way.
