Payment Data Transfer using two websites urls with one PayPal account

We have two WordPress websites setup with WooCommerce for the shopping carts (no PayPal buttons). Transactions from both sites are being directed through our one PayPal account. I would like to set up both website URL's with the Payment Data Transfer option, however, PayPal's Website Preferences only allows the use of one URL for Auto Return, generating one PayPal Identity token. Because the sites sell different products, it would not be appropriate to use the one Identity Token to return customers to only one of the sites, creating confusion.

 

Is it possible to use Payment Data Transfer, setting up auto-return using two different URL's? If not, is there a workaround? Thanks for the help!

Hi, with PDT you can't have 2 different identity token I am afraid. Did you consider to use IPN instead? When you enable IPN in your profile you can provide only 1 URL but if you pass the notify URL variable, according to your integration type, you could pass from 1 shop an IPN url like for example https://www.my_Shop1.com/myIPNlistener_1 while for the other https://www.my_Shop2.com/myIPNlistener_2

 

In this way you can process 2 different IPN from your 2 shops. You can find here a useful links for IPN: IPN Intro
