Cancel payment, never receive IPN response

Cancel payment, never receive IPN response

Hi,

I'm having an issue where if I log in to Paypal and cancel a recurring payment, never sends an IPN (Instant Payment Notification) to my web server listener URL.

I configured my IPN listener code to take the Paypal response, and extract certain data from it. The idea is that the user makes a payment on my website via Paypal, and Paypal sends the response back to my website indicating success or failure (via the IPN). If I success, I collect the variables (that's working perfectly and instantly). But, whenever I cancel a payment action, I never receive any data from my IPN listener.

I only receive data from IPN Listener when the payment is 'completed'.

Any idea?

Thank you very much.

So you're saying you have an existing subscription profile setup, and you log in to cancel it, but you never seen an IPN for that? Are you working with Standard Subscriptions or Recurring Payments APIs?

Re: Cancel payment, never receive IPN response

Yes,

I'm working with Standard Subscriptions.

When the payment is correct, I receive the IPN call with the values of the variables, but when I cancel the payment i don't receive anything.

Maybe that's right and I don't have to receive anything. I don't know.

You're losing me there.  You say "cancel the payment."  Do you mean you're canceling the profile, or are you talking about click on a Subscribe button to sign up, but then canceling before you finish?
