7. IPN and PDT > 69. Use IPN with eBay Listings

Use IPN with eBay Listings

Include additional variables with auction payments to help fortify the connection between eBay and your PayPal transaction history.

When the IPN system is activated for auction payments, your IPN script receives a form post with the transaction information. If you have your IPN profile preferences set to On, your processing script always gets hit when a payment is made, even for auction payments.

In order to process posts for auctions, your IPN script needs to be able to recognize that the payment is being made for an auction and adjust accordingly. In some cases, you might want to process only certain sections of code for auctions, or you might want to omit certain sections of your IPN page in the case of auction payments. There are five additional variables you need to watch for while dealing with IPN pages that can potentially receive posts for auction payments: item_number, auction_buyer_id, auction_closing_date, and auction_multi_item, and for_auction.
