Thanks for posting this code. I'm working on a project to set up online registration with paypal payment so IPN is a must. I'm totally new at this and have found the paypal documentation a bit confusing.
I've run in to a glitch though. When I set everything up in the sandbox and run a test IPN from the paypal sandbox IPN simulator it works perfectly. However, when the IPN is run off the submit button of my form it retries several times before failing. In the sandbox seller account I can't seem to find any more information as to why it failed. Do you have any suggestions on how I might troubleshoot this?
This has been frustrating me for several days. Thanks for any suggestions!
I just did a search of this thread for ssl and https - what you need to do this sort of communication.
I don't know if this would solve anyone's issues here but without a Secure Socket Layer that confers an https connection, PayPal will send little if anything back to the domain initiating the payment.
