This PayPal problem has been discussed before, however I have tried the fixes and checked the settings, but PayPal will not send, or the cart will not allow PayPal to send the information required so that we know what the customer purchased. PayPal takes their money, paypal tells us that we have money, however paypal does not tell us what was bought or does any of this information appear anywhere in the cart.
Here are what I have tried so far
I have tried renaming the following file /includes/languages/english/lipstyle/meta_tags.php to meta_tags.php.bak but this did not seem to have an effect.
I then un-installed and re-installed the PayPal module from within Admin, this had no effect.
I have checked that the email matches perfectly the main email account in paypal.
I have this set (as suggested int the cart admin area) https://www.buystephenmackey.co.uk//...in_handler.php ... this is pasted in the IPN place at paypal, only I am not convinced about the 3 ///'s ... however I left them like that in Paypal, as that is how the cart says they should be.
I have set the chmod settings on ipn_main_handler to 777 and it is in the root html folder of buystephenmackey.co.uk
I have set the autoreturn URL to this (suggested by the zen cart)
this appears to work correctly as the shopper does get back to our site after paypal process.
I would be most grateful if someone could help in this regard, and suggest a fix as the shop is currently live, and we have had a couple of PayPal orders already and I am having to ask the customer for 'which items they bought' as I have no idea, only the amount they spent!
Please help if you can.
