@bnctech Getting someone started with the eBay API is a lot of work. You'll need to do an internet search. Unless you're already using the API, or you're looking for a challenge, I would give PayPal some time to fix this. I don't believe this is intended. My IPN listener has a few lines of code where it copes with PayPal missing values and/or renaming values. Without resorting to casual insults, and from the perspective of someone who used to design and write financial code for a living, PayPal's quality of coder and/or quality control are not impressive.
If you can't wait, or PayPal don't restart sending the email address soon, you have three possible solutions:
Same with me 29/3/19 no email addresses coming through via the IPN.
Does anyone know if PP are aware and dealing with this matter to resolve it please?
Same here, not worked since 29th.
Works OK through my website but not for Ebay transactions so automated sending of receipts to the customer no longer works.
Same issue here 😞
That's very weird that paypal removed this field without any notice. It simply broke my application and for few hours I was not able to process orders.
In my opinion paypal should notify users that they will remove this field... Many of us were depending on it.
Here Her Kraks totally agree there should be some list of what values are going to change or depreciate. The API still shows it as valid: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/ipn/integration-guide/IPNandPDTVariables/#ipn-transaction-...
PayPal status page says reporting is in Service Disruption status. Don't know if it's related:
Has anyone tried using PayPal's API gettransactionDetails instead of eBay API to obtain payer_email for the eBay payments?
This relates to:
Looks like it is back and working as of sometime yesterday as I am now getting IPN's with the payer_email value populated. Is everyone else in the same position? If not let me know and I may be able to help resolve.
Can anyone tel me which of these two curl values they are using when the payer_email was not being received please?
I have a ticket open with MTS and trying to identify what caused the problem.
