Support » Plugin: Membership 2 » Users can't subscribe, Notify_url and Paypal IPN problem

  • Hi, this is my second post on this problem because no one bothered answering the first one. Hoping this one will be different!

    When a user subscribes, all the info gets sent to Paypal perfectly. However, once the transaction is done, the user’s membership profile isn’t updated. Through the wordpress admin, I can see that there’s no record of the transaction or anything.

    Membership uses dynamic IPN with the use of notify_url in their HTML. That way Paypal can send their IPN to the location that’s stated in the notify_url parameter.This serves as a confirmation for the membership plugin that the client did in fact pay and he should therefore become a member.

    However the notify_url parameter that’s sent is:

    (mywebsite) wordpress%2Fpaymentreturn%2Fpaypalsolo&submit.x=36&submit.y=17

    or in other words


    Which does not exist. In the wordpress folder there is no such thing as the paymentreturn folder.

    So if I understand correctly, the IPN is failing because membership is telling Paypal to send back the IPN to a location that doesn’t exist.

    What’s going on? I tried re-installing, but that didn’t change anything.

    Any help/suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi AK_RD,

    Have you by any chance tried manually adding a Level and/or Subscription to a member at Membership > Edit Members?

    I’m just wondering if the issue is that members aren’t able to get moved into the appropriate levels.

    Hello David,

    Over the past week, I’ve been posting on WPMU regarding this very issue — and have spent considerable time, re-installing things, re-configuring, searching the WPMU forum, searching code, changing themes, etc. trying to figure out what is wrong.

    The point is, manually doing this would take continual site monitoring for new user registrations! I can’t be on the site 24/7.

    I thought the process was supposed to be automatic. How does delayed manual additions of Subscription level/Access level affect the protection ability of the plugin for the site and the communications?
