End of payment notification (IPN)

This functionality allows to manually resend a notification at the end of payment to the notification URL of the shop.

This procedure is useful when the initial notification ended with an error.

This implies that the merchant has configured the Instant Payment Notification URL at the end of the payment notification rule.

  1. In the transaction table, search for the transaction for which you would like to resend the notification.
  2. Right-click the transaction and select Send the Instant Payment Notification.
    If your application becomes available once again, you will see a message confirming that the URL has been successfully executed.

    In any case, you can view the result of your action in the event history of the transaction and analyze the error messages if the problem persists.

Characteristics of manual execution

When an IPN is manually executed, some fields will not be sent or will have a different value.

Examples of not available/not registered fields in the database:

  • vads_page_action
  • vads_payment_config
  • vads_action_mode

Examples of fields sent with different values:

  • vads_url_check_src

    Will be set to BO in case of a manual retry.

  • vads_trans_status

    The transaction status may differ between the initial call and the retry.

  • vads_hash
  • signature
