    Paypal and IPNs

    Asked by SCAP72560 on August 31, 2014 at 02:44 PM

    Is it required that I set up my Paypal with IPN?

    I ask, because I would like to use your most excellent form tool in conjunction with our Paypal account to receive race entry fees for our fundraiser.

    Your instructions when using Paypal say SHOULD with regard to setting up the IPN

    Does this mean it will work and we will get our payments without that?

    Hoping that's the case - having trouble wrapping my head around IPN Handler Programs PLUS we don't really need that instant feedback.

    I look forward to hearing back on this.

    No, it is not required. As long as your Paypal IPN is enabled then that would be fine.
