Title: OSCommerce Pay Pal IPN return URL
Post by: admin on June 26, 2008, 12:07: PM
You go into your PayPal Profile

In your pay pal account Choose Website Payment Preferences

Auto Return needs to be on

url for this should be either:

https://www.yoursitename/store/catalog/checkout_process.php

or

http://www.yoursitename/store/catalog/checkout_process.php

depending if you're using an SSL certificate  - if so use the first one.

What will happen is this, when your customers pay via paypal from your store, once their payment is completed, they are automatically returned from paypal back to your store to their checkout and voila the order is completed!

The reason PayPal doesn't instruct this (in my opinion) is that logically most customers will hit the "continue" button on PayPal which brings them to PayPal's solicitations.
