WHMCS URL and Paypal IPN Changes

Recommended Posts

We recently changed our WHMCS URL  and we went into Paypal and updated the IPN address there however, we continue to receive instant payment notifications on the old URL. In the interim, we put an .htaccess to redirect posts to the old IPN URL to our new one and that is working fine. 

My question is, how long does Paypal send to the old address? We changed the URL several days ago and we still receive IPN's at the old address. Is this something that Paypal subscriptions will always send to the old IPN and new payments will go to the new IPN?

 

Best regards,

Eric

Hi @ejmerkel,

PayPal subscriptions will send IPNs to the old location until they are cancelled. PayPal does not allow the IPN URL on an existing subscription cannot be changed.

Ok, I did not realize that. Thanks for your response.
