Ok, I had one magento site lets call test1.com and used "paypal standard", set the email address to our main paypal email account, which we will call email@example.com
IPN was blank in Paypal and all payment came through fine.
Now, we have another stand alone magento store (not through the same admin as above) lets call this site test2.com and used "paypal standard", Now this is also set to the email address of our main paypal email account, which is firstname.lastname@example.org
IPN is still blank in Paypal and all payments from both sites now come through as "Pending Payment" even if they have actually show as paid in Paypal.
All I am looking for is to run two magento stores with one Paypal account and be notified of successful payments.
Hope someone can help with this.
There is a solution for this here
The final solution points to this forum but it appears to be removed.
Yes, but this is not exactly the answer to the question and the link back to this board does not work either.
Can I have two magento sites and the same email in "paypal standard" pointing to one paypal account?
and what about the IPN in paypal? leave blank?
Sounds like Pending Payments from Paypal on Magento site.
