IPN (Instant Payment Notification) is a POST message sent by Paypal (for regular merchant accounts) whenever a transaction is completed on their side. This message contains all the data regarding the payment transaction completed by a form user. Go to our Incomplete Payments FAQ for more information.
This guide is for PayPal Personal accounts. If you’re looking for PayPal Business and PayPal Payment Pro accounts, please visit the following user guide.
How to set up PayPal IPN settings?
The default notification URL does not matter. Jotform only needs IPN to be enabled.

I had to search for "instant payment notifications" while logged into PayPal.
How to fix my IPN for my Paypal
It seems Paypal has changed its site architecture as we can't access such IPN setting pages now...
Any idea ?
We have Jotforms set up with PayPal Checkout embedded in them but payments are not showing up in the Jotform submissions form.
I have read through your guide above and we already have IPN enabled within PayPal although our default notification URL is not set to Jotform (we have other systems which take PayPal payments). Is there something else I now need to do?
