Support » Plugin: WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart » IPN and Download Link

  • Resolved JoseJimenez


    Hi, nice plugin and easy to use/set up.

    I have a question re PayPal IPN. Do I need to set this up and why? Its for an eBook that is being sold on someone else’e behalf so they are getting all the proceeds directly i.e its their PayPal account.

    Secondly, can I not email the eBook automatically to the buyer? If I provide a download link it could be a free for all if the link is shared or, is there a way around this?


    PS My version is 4.0.5

    Hi Jose Jimenez, in regards to your question about why you need to enable PayPal IPN. Please read the following URL.

    If you are concern about the the URL of the download link, then I suggest that you consider the Pro version of this plugin which has an option to encrypt the URL.

    @jose, You can remove {product_details} tag from the buyer email body (WP Shopping Cart->Email Settings) so it doesn’t send any download link. Alternatively, you can turn off the “Send Emails to Buyer After Purchase” option.
