Setting up multiple IPN's?

I already have 1 IPN url set for my account, but i want to add an IPN for another application. Is there anyway for me to have 2 set up at the same time, or is it only 1 per account?

Thanks.

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

Well I did A lot of searching for this issue and it looks as though I may have stumbled upon a solution. http://codeseekah.com/2012/02/11/how-to-setup-multiple-ipn-receivers-in-paypal/ "The concept An single IPN URL is setup for PayPal to notify your application of payments. The IPN handler code broadcasts PayPal’s payload to other IPN URLs you may have selectively or in bulk." I hope it's of some help to someone. 🙂

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

Hi AK2,

 

 You can only set up one IPN url within the account profile.

 

However, you can define IPN urls on a transactional basis using the variable ‘notify_url’, see information here

 

I hope this helps

Hi Poirot, 

 

I have just tested the link and it is still available for viewing. If you are getting an error please try viewing it in a different browser. 

 

Thanks

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

Is there any way the IPN can be sent to the address specified in the Account Info and to the notify_url?  We ahve three different programs sending to the payements API.  They each use thier own notify_url.  We want to get a summary and verify all transactions.

 

Thanks

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

The problem with that is that you would not want to be embedding your notification server address in an html page this would mean that the likely hood of the notification server being hacked or bypassed would be increased.. 

 

I have a notification url also in paypal and need to add a different notify url for a specific product i sell online.. 

I presuming that if the url isnt embedded in the page that a 'new account' would need to be created for this purpose?

to ensure that the notification url for my servers are protected?

 

or is there a different way to do it? i couldnt see a different way on the page above.. 

 

The problem is I need 4 different notification urls for payments from different market places?

and if you need different accounts  to do this, is this not against paypals rules & regs?

 

thanks

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

I'm facing this same issue with a couple of different clients. Would be great if PayPal offered the ability to create multiple IPN url's for a single account.

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

I'm in the same situation as well. I have a membership website with online product I sell that has an IPN. And I've just set up a new website with Event Esspresso plugin, it's an event management plugin, that requires it's own IPN.

 

I'm a little surprised to see that Paypal haven't responded to several of the posts here in this topic.

 

Please Paypal can you help us with this?

Re: Setting up multiple IPN's?

I am wanting to have 3 websites set up with PayPal payment and to send PayPal invoices our to customers. We currently have IPN set up for one website, the extension changes the notification URL when redirecting the user to the PayPal site, however I use shopping cart buttons on another one of our sites and I am now receiving 'PayPal Instant Payment Notification Warnings' everyday. Will we need seperate PayPal accounts for each site? I hope not as I would rather bulk everything together to benefit from the reduced fees. If anyone could help I would be most grateful.
