I am creating a consumer 2 consumer website, similar to eBay but for books only. I am using PayPal's sandboxing environment to test the payment functionality.
I was wondering if it was possible to use IPN with both buyers and sellers. Reason being is a user may have a normal account(Non seller account), i want to be able to log in a database all payments from both parties. I am not able to do this with an buyer account.
The reason behind using IPN is just so all information can be logged in the database, would using IPN to do this be the correct way? is there an alternative?
I have successfully managed to get IPN working for a seller account by providing a url listener in PayPal under the relevant user, however i cannot do the same for a buyer.
I would appreciate any help i can get with this.
Thanks in advance.
