Paypal link ipn don't work

by Vastasia2018 » Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:23 pm

Hi, I installed the extension on my forum (3.2.3). I did a test and everything works perfectly but, after that, it stopped working.

Precisely, after choosing the amount and clicking on the "Donation" button, a new page opens with links

Code: Select all

https://ipnpb.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr
and stay several minutes loading. After a few minutes this screen is shown

I have a Paypal business account.
In Paypal "Instant payment notification (IPN)" settings I read

URL notification https://xxxxx/app.php/ipn-listener
Message delivery Activated


Why did it stop working?
Can you help me?
Thank you.

Thanks Skouat,

replacing link

Code: Select all

https://ipnpb.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr
to

Code: Select all

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr
in main_controller.php file now works (I checked before, the link https://ipnpb.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr is still not working).

Should I report to Paypal?

You can, but normally it's up to me to reported this. :oops:
I haven't yet taken the time to do it.

This extension is not working for me.

Changing the link to https://www.ipnpb.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr in the main_controller.php results in

Testing the IPN works fine in the Sandbox but not live. However, the IPN tested OK with https://tld.com but not with https://tld.com/forum

Sandbox:

PayPal-ipnpbIssue4.PNG
PayPal-ipnpbIssue5.PNG
Not working in live/production environment.

PayPal account is a business account.

Any hints or help would be appreciated.

Thanks

This is because you changed with an invalid link.
Please read this thread and apply the correct change. ;)

Sorry, the first image is what I get with the addition of www in the URL

I meant to include in my post that the PayPal URL was changed back to https://ipnpb.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr and the remaining pics are what I get.

UPDATE: I tested the PayPal extension again today, clicked on the button and it worked fine. Took me to PayPal without issue BUT I cancelled the donation and was directed back to the forum. All good so far.

Then a short time later I tested extension again and got those errors. Session cookie issue perhaps?

Nope, no go with changing the URL but I'm pretty sure I've found why this happens as per my UPDATE here ;)
