PayPal Instant Payment Notifications (IPN)


Recommended Posts



I am getting a message from Paypal which says:
Please check your server that handles PayPal Instant Payment Notifications (IPN). Instant Payment Notifications sent to the following URL(s) are failing:

In my PayPal profile the URL is as below and I suspect it is incorrect.
Instant Payment Notification (IPN)

What should the correct URL be for CC5?


PS I have changed an "h" to an "i" in the link above otherwise the URL is unreadable

Many thanks

I just received this same notice with XXXX/modules/gateway/PayPal_Shopping_Cart/ipn.php as being what I have! And mine's been working, so what could possibly be going on? I've checked that my gateway.class.php hasn't changed since 5.2.2.


I know a lot changed in the Pro version. Should I be using the ipn url that is listed in it for the gateway version?

Well, there is no folder/file named:



The 'notify_url' for IPN purposes for the PayPal gateway (not plug-in) is specified in the code as xxxx/index.php?_g=rm&type=gateway&cmd=call&module=PayPal


"as being what I have!"


Stated where?

The URL should be:


Please note that you must upgrade to CUbeCart 5.2.4 which supports HTTP 1.1 which is now required for PayPal IPN.
