Hello guys,

I need some help with PAYPAL IPN system . I am completely lost.

Thanks man!

It would really be nice to get help from a guru like you.

Also if the $_POST[‘email’] being blank is one of the issues, you can just create a account here ( http://zoomthe.me/soundportal//index.php?page=register ) no need for a real email. Then when logged in, the email would appear.

Never mind guys,

I figured it out.

You have to very carefully construct the FORM element, and inputs. Paypal API is pretentious.

Also the cmd must be set to _xclick

Thank you!
