Over the past few days I am seeing incorrect details being returned to my IPN script. Specifically it is similar to an issue from a few weeks ago as some shopping cart variables are being passed back despite me not using any of PayPals shopping cart system.
item_name should send back the value I always use my+shop+name+order but it is sending back the value Shopping+Cart
This is in turn causing issues with processing orders as the expected variables are not there to check against.
I do have an open ticket with PayPal support but thought that if others had the same issue it might be helpful to post here so that they would be aware that this problem has returned again
