Difference between Paypal IPN, paypal and express?
I'm currently setting up my store and testing, I have as payment options Paypal IPN, Paypal and paypal express. What is the difference between all of these and should I really only have one switched on? During testing they all lead to paypal so are they essentially all the same?
Re: Difference between Paypal IPN, paypal and express?
I'm not familiar with the module you're referring to as just "paypal", but there is a difference between IPN and Express Checkout.
Express Checkout offers your visitors an opportunity to checkout through PayPal without creating an account at your store. PayPal IPN requires a store account, and directs them to PayPal to complete payment.
I believe that Express Checkout also offers an option to pay with PayPal to account holders during checkout, so if you have Express Checkout I believe you can disable IPN.
Hope this helps,
