Cannot make it work (3 posts)

    I've invested over 30 hours of research and testing and cannot get IPN to complete a transaction in PayPal sandbox. There are inadequate resources for a reasonably tech-savvy person to pound this plugin into place. It simply should not be this hard.

    This may be simplifying your issue, but did you set up the Paypal IPN address in your sandbox? Once you create your test account in the sandbox, you have to set up the IPN handler just as you do on your live paypal account. I was getting timeout errors until I set this value. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply. All of my trials were done in the sandbox. I'm curious about your configuration. Can you provide some details? I suspect there's some crucial difference that I'm missing.

    My setup: Windows 7 Pro, 32-bit, MySQL 5.5 server, PHP 5.3.10, Apache 2.2. For IPN tests I added dynamic dns so PayPal could find my web server. Opening port 443 in my firewall made no difference, nor did any SSL configuration of Apache (altho' I may have missed something with this). WordPress 3.3.1.

    I was able to get the IPN listener from here working independently of WP.
