Post Data/Notifications from Paypyal to website

I have Integrated Payflow API for Recurring Payments.

When an Auto renewal recurring payment takes place on paypal, I need to update my database with transaction status and other parameters that we may need!

 

We are using Paypal Manager,  Any way to integrate some callback url?

Check out Silent Post.  Pretty sure that's what you're looking for.

I have configured silent post back url through paypal manager, but seems url couldn't getting hit when a recurring transaction takes place.

I have placed a email generation code under the url method. But the url never gor hit, any way to see if the url was hit or not ?

Hmmm...did you check your web server logs to see if that URL is ever getting hit?

Yes, I did, Couldn't find that url anywhere, however when I directly hit the url from browser, It does work!

Upon further review it looks like the Silent Post only works with "Pro Hosted". I don't see any info about that sort of feature with PayFlow in general. Maybe somebody at PayPal can step in here and help.

I know if you're using PayPal Pro (DoDirectPayment) and Recurring Payments Profiles then you can use IPN and it does send notifications for all transactions related to a profile. How far into PayFlow are you? You may decide you need to switch.

Re: Post Data/Notifications from Paypyal to website

we are integrated through Paypal Manager and using Payflow Pro PAI for Recurring billing. Initially we used IPN but it was merely for Paypal not Paypal Manager as transaction data an drepsonses are different in two.
We were suggested silent post backs by Paypal support but we never got connected with any tech person to help us with integration.

Yeah, unfortunately that's all I'm seeing for this sort of thing on PayFlow, but it seems to refer to "Pro Hosted" only. 😞

I have integrated Payflow Pro API.

On Paypal hosted page, I have enabled Post back, am I misssing something?

"PayFlow Pro" and "PayPal Hosted" are separate products.  PayPal Hosted does use the PayFlow gateway, but "Pro" has a separate API call that you use to process cards directly, while "Hosted" uses API calls to build an iFrame that gets embedded into your site.  Which one are you using?  Direct credit card processing, or embedded iFrame hosted by PayPal?
