Support » Plugin: PayPal IPN for WordPress » Information to show to users

  • Hi,
    How do we display the payer ID on a page for that specific customer?
    We have tried to do this but it keeps just showing the payer ID of the first transaction that was recorded. We want it to only show that specific customers own payer ID.

    This plugin wouldn’t have a way to do that out of the box. You can output parameters based on transaction ID, but you’d need to know that transaction ID, so you’d have to be able to pull this record based on a relationship to customer / order records you may have. Once you know the transaction ID for the IPN you would to pull from you could use this shortcode:

    [paypal_ipn_data txn_id=”7EY918813N481574L” field=”payer_id”]

    That would return the payer_id associated with the transaction ID 7EY918813N481574L.

    What you may want to do is write a hook to update your own data tables/fields when the IPN comes through in a way that lets you pull it back out however you need to.
