My problem is:
I'm trying to implemment Paypal in a web site of a client. I'm new with Paypal. And IPN doesn't send anything, a very very nice technitian called Grabielle alreday told me I have to wait 2-3 days to get the issue fixed and receive the IPN's that are QUEUED to make the final tests, check the report, erase the database items, send an e-mail to the client, save a report and so on. I cannot do any of those things until the system is being fixed.
But I've got other questions that are not well explained in paypal service.
1.- The button notify_url does the same job than IPN from the panel?
2.- If I have set an URL in the button is necesary to do it so in the client instant notification panel?
3.- In case I want to send a variable with the internal (mywebsite)ID number of the operation throught your payment system, where do I have to set that variable? in the html code? in the buttons squared textbox?(where you write that of notify_url:https....?)
By the way, thanks thanks thanks thanks for answering
Hi again Justin!
"-- You would need to use the "custom" variable and pass this variable and a value (your website id number) within the html code"
what I want to pass is the id of the buying that I have stored in my database, so when IPN send me the whole data I need to catch this variable, check it in the database and move all the data to my table called "verificated_booking", so I make all the changes in the booking database. Is that possible and correct?
I'm sorry Justin for my clumsiness but I'm new here, sorry if I don't post in the correct way or somewhere different, just because I have no idea what's going on. Right now I feel like trying to get to a place in an unkwonwed city with a broken map and nobody I ask in the street can tell where I go or they just keep on walking
