    I am moving a site to s2member that uses permanent recurring Paypal payments. I believe that you cannot change the Paypal IPN pointing to the old software.

    If I set the EOT to say a week after the subscription is rebilled, will the IPN change to the s2member IPN update as this article suggests?


    I am assuming you cannot redirect IPNs since the post variables will disappear. Is this also correct?

    Thanks, Willy

    I would like ask this question again. I am now a pro member, and I am in the process of migrating a site to s2member.

    My question is simple. How do I deal with subscriptions that have a Paypal IPN pointing to old software.

    I am pretty sure you cannot update an IPN on a existing subscription in Paypal.

    I see 3 options.

    1. Maybe there a pro option for this or something already written. I think this might be referencing something -- http://www.s2member.com/forums/topic/help-with-paypal-central-ipn-php-and-ipn/
    2. If I could find the code called by http://example.com/?s2member_paypal_notify=1 maybe I could a hack it into working for the old IPN.
    3. And the most time consulting, cURL the old address to the new address. This would be painful as I don't cURL much.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, and of course, correct me if something does not make sense.

    In your Account page, you should find a link to the Pro Extras zip file, which includes the central IPN script you can customize for your own installation. http://www.s2member.com/account/

    So you'd put it where the old subscriptions are pointing to, to forward the notifications to the s2Member URL. WP Admin -> s2Member -> PayPal Options -> IPN

    Or you can manage those old subscriptions manually, removing the user's paid access manually from his WP profile when his subscription ends. It's not the ideal solution, but it works if you can't get the old subs IPN to work.

    New subscriptions created through s2Member don't have that problem, of course.

    I hope that helps. :)
