Paypal IPN Settings

PayPal's IPN feature sends payment details back to your website and triggers confirmation emails and order status updates. This means your customers no longer have to do anything after paying to complete a Paypal order.

We’ve integrated our stores to use this new feature, but you must update your PayPal account to make it work. You can follow the instructions below, or scroll down to view screen shots.

If you do not see My Selling Tools in your Paypal account, you can call Paypal and they will help you switch to an account type with this option (NO additional costs). We've learned Paypal has slightly different layouts and terms for different account types.

1. Log in to PayPal
2. Click on "Profile"
3. In lower left box click My Selling tools
4. Under Getting paid and managing my risk, find instant payment notifications and click update
5. Click the yellow button for Choose IPN Settings
6. In Notification URL enter:
7. Under IPN Messages select Receive IPN messages (Enabled)
8. Click Save
