Paypal's IPN slow recently?

Hey fellas,

Has anyone else experienced Paypal’s IPN being slow recently? Usually the purchases go through instantly put recently it seems like it can take as long as 20 minutes. Has anyone else suffered of this?

What’s weird is with the transaction ID, I can pull up the details on a purchase instantly, but it doesn’t show up in the list of transactions (nor does the IPN ping our server with the data) until a few minutes later.

Shouldn’t this be talked about with the PP support?

It could, sure. Just wondering if I’m the only one in that boat.

Yes, there was a user in the ScriptFodder thread having issues because of it.

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

Whoops, guess it’s user specific.
This should work

late to reply sorry, but yeah PayPal’s IPN has been taking anywhere from instantly to up to 4 hours for ScriptFodder payments and is still occurring :confused:

It’s not just the IPN service, receiving payments as a whole is delayed but if you’re using their newer APIs they can validate the sale + provide a transaction ID.
