    IPN Notifications still coming

    Asked by tntnutritioncoach on September 19, 2016 at 08:29 AM



    I had emailed a few days about about getting IPN Notifications from paypal. I have been set up through Paypal for a long time now using JotForm. I checked my IPN jotform settings again and they look fine. The last time this happened a few months ago where I continually got IPN notifications from Paypal the problem ending up being something on the Jotform end. 


    Please advise,

    Shelby M

    Could you try resending the IPN  by following the steps below:

    1. Sign into your PayPal account

    2. Under My Account, hover over history and click on IPN History

    3. Under Search, select a time period in which the order can be found and click on Search. Select the relevant transaction/s > click Resend Selected.

    4. Select the relevant transaction/s

    5. Click Resend Selected.

    Also, please confirm if the IPN URL is set to https://www.jotform.com/ipns/paypal.php in your PayPal account. Let us know if you are still receiving the emails from PayPal so that we can forward the issue to our backend team.

    Thank you!

    I found the area you are advising to go to. The last 3 recent says it was sent, should I still click resend? My IPN URL is set correctly in paypal.
