    Default Not sure how to set up Paypal Standard

    Hi again!

    Just trying to complete the setting up of Paypal Standard. I've got the bit on Bluepark where it says to go to Paypal and add my IPN url. Where exactly do I find the place to enter this please?

    Is it 'my selling preferences' then API Access?

    Thanks - Rachel

    Looks like PayPal has changed things since I last looked. Even more confusing than ever!

    You enter it in Profile / My Selling Preferences / Getting Paid and Managing Risk / Instant Payment Notification (IPN)

    Yes it's confusing me too - it all looks different.

    Do we not need to add bluepark to the API - just the IPN?

    Just the IPN, the rest is set up in BP on the Payment tab.

    So I have set up Paypal in BP. I have gone to my Paypal account and there is a Notification URL box. Do I just add my website url? Shouldn't I be adding an email address?

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Best regards,

    Col.

    If it's the IPN Notification URL then it is
    https://www.yourwebsite.co.uk/checkout/action/ipn/

    If you haven't got a Thawte Certificate then you'll have to change the https to http.

    Just checked, you can find your own specific IPN on the PayPal tab in Configuration > Payment

    Hi Thomas,

    I'm not using a Thawte SSL as I think with Paypal I don't need it.
    I've set Paypal up as per your instructions. Thanks for your help!

    Regards,

    Col.

    No problem!

    You don't technically need a Thawte certificate, but it's definitely worth buying as soon as you can afford it. As a lot of browsers now try to inform customers that a website is insecure.

    The Thawte certificate isn't just for payment information, it's also for customers personal information such as their name & address. Basically all information entered at checkout, some customers will be put off if they get an insecure warning when trying to purchase from your site.
