How to Setup PayPal IPN Notification

Instant Payment Notification (IPN) allows you to integrate your PayPal payments with your website’s back-end operations, so you get immediate notification and authentication of the PayPal payments you receive.

Do the following to enable IPN in your PayPal account:

  1. Log into your PayPal account.
  2. Click "Profile and Settings" at the top of the page.
  3. Go to “My Selling Tools”
  4. Look for an option labelled “Instant Payment Notification”. Click on the update button for that option.
  5. Click “Choose IPN Settings”
  6. Enter the URL of your website and hit “Save”  If you have an SSL Certificate on the site, you should use https:// instead of http://
