Support » Plugin: PayPal IPN for WordPress » Does IPN transfer user password?

    Hi,

    I have a Paypal Subscribe button and I have set it up so that PayPal generates a username and password when a user does a subscription signup.

    I would like to use the Paypal generated username and password to then create a WordPress user account using this username and password.

    I can see this username and password on the PayPal site when a subscription is successful – ie PayPal shows the username and password on the “Your purchase was successful” screen.

    Eg:

    Below are your username and password for your subscription. Manage your subscription with your username and password.

    Username:
    pp-inanebel

    Password:
    fotce#dket

    In WordPress > PayPal IPn > Transactions list, if I open a transaction, I can see the username and there is a field called password but it has a different value:

    password: Sl3ne9wompf2Y

    Could you please explain:

    Is this the user password that Paypal generated?

    Is it different because it is encrypted?

    If it is encrypted, how would I decrypt it in order to be able to create a user account in WordPress using this password?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    It is an awesome plugin – thanks so much for creating and sharing it.
