Hello,
I am going to use my Paypal account to sell on2 websites, each one will have a different IPN url

I found a broadcaster script to allow this: codeseekah.com/2012/02/11/how-to-setup-m...receivers-in-paypal/

I have 2 questions:
1 - what is exactly the IPN url for Hikashop? Right now I've put only my domain name (mysite.com) on Paypal IPN settings name and is working, should I use a different url in the broadcaster script linked above?

2 - do you think the broadcaster script I found will work with Hikashop or it's not worth to even try it?

Thank you

Just a doubt,
do I need IPN active at all with Hikashop + Paypal payment plugin? (I do not use Paypal express)

here are my settings: nimb.ws/DIXWcT
I have filled in both the cancel and return url, but paypal IPN is still required to change the order status? Or it is not?

Thanks

Hi,

You don't need that.
HikaShop sends its IPN URL to PayPal for each payment request. So PayPal already knows the URL to notify the website for each payment, even if the payment requests come from different websites.
That IPN setting is sueful for when the website doesn't send the IPN URL to PayPal.
I would be more concerned about the order_id overlapping on both websites:
www.hikashop.com/support/documentation/i...l-error.html#already
If you don't confiugre your PayPal merchant account properly, you're likely to have that error "This invoice has already been paid. For more information, please contact the merchant"

The cancel and return URL settings are to let know PayPal were to redirect the customer after the payment if it succeed or fails. It's not linked to the IPN or the order status changing to "confirmed".

Thank you for the clarifications.
But I still need to fill in the IPN url in my Paypal because this is requested by the other website plugin (Woocommerce - Wordpress).
SO if say I fill in the IPN in Paypal with an url of my other website, will this conflict with Hikashop payment process?

Hi,

Normally, the URL sent by your website will supercede the URL in PayPal. So you could put whatever in your PayPal merchant account.
The IPN URL is:

https://www.mywebsite.com/index.php?option=com_hikashop&ctrl=checkout&task=notify&notif_payment=paypal&tmpl=component&lang=en
