Hi - we have a basic online shopping cart that receives IPN messages when an order is placed and paid for through PayPal - and this works fine with IPN coming back from PayPal to confirm the payment is completed etc.
However, when we use the PayPal "Request Money" option from within the PayPal dashboard, the IPN system then tries to send an IPN to our system IPN listener. This results in a HTTP response code 500 and a "failed" message in our PayPal IPN log file.
As a result, we are receiving the "PayPal Instant Payment Notification Warning" email from PayPal telling us the IPNs are failing. The only IPNs that are failing are the manual money request transaction IPNs.
What would be the best way to handle this? We don't need the IPNs for manual payment requests. Can we turn it off, or can we add something to our IPN listener to receive these messages but not do anything with them?
