Provide an Order Summary with IPN

Present order-specific information on the return page after the customer makes payment.

The return URL and the IPN processing script are two pages on your site that can receive posts containing details of a purchase. Used separately, these two pages can enable you to create a more robust eCommerce system by providing order-specific customization.

Using the return page, for instance, you can display the order number [Hack #52] to the customer for later use. Using the IPN system, on the other hand, you can send a customized email to the customer [Hack #71] , giving her that same order number for tracking purposes. When these two features are used together, they can be even more powerful in terms of their ability to present your customer with valuable information.
