View Full Version : how to set up a paypal ipn account

07-26-2009, 08:25 PM
I've been looking through the forums, and it sounds like the
Credit/Debit Card (via PayPal) IPN is probably the best way to go, to set up a paypal option, as an alternative to customers who don't want to pay through authorize.net.
So I just upgraded my paypal account to a business account.
But I'm really confused on how to proceed.
When I look at the choices on the paypal site, I see:
- paypal express checkout
- website payments standard
Those are the only 2 options I see that don't have a monthly fee.
Neither one sounds like Credit/Debit Card IPN. ???

So, which of these do I choose?
And, then, when I look at the admin for setting up the
Credit/Debit Card (via PayPal),
I need to enter in a bunch of information:
- your private key
- your public certificate
- PayPals Public Certificate
- Your PayPal Public Certificate ID
- working directory
- OpenSSL Location

I don't see any documentation on either the oscmax side or in paypal, on where I find this information.

Sorry, this must be obvious somewhere, but I'm having trouble finding the answers out.
I'd appreciate any help with this.
Thanks very much!
