Here is a transaction walkthrough, just as I'm seeing it. Please note this is a transaction to purchase an item that has been placed in the classifieds by a seller, like a car or a piece of clothing. This is not a subscription to classifieds (which I'm handling through vbulletin) or purchase for an ad, or a feature like bold or highlighting.
I place a classified ad selling a piece of clothing as angrygirl gear with buy it now through paypal enabled. In the ad, I put my angrygirl gear paypal email address where it asks for a paypal address, because I want to get paid if someone buys the piece of clothing in my ad, right? Right.
I then purchased this listing by clicking the buy it now button on the ad. When it got to the paypal screen, it has the angrygirl gear logo at the top, indicating that I was buying from angrygirl gear. The links all say *cancel and return to angrygirl gear. This is fine, except that the links that say *cancel and return to angrygirl gear* don't work - they go to payment_verification.php and the white screen of death.
My angrygirl gear paypal account is forwarded to a thank you page on my website. And its set up with an IPN that subscribes me to all my paypal transactions:
Content visible to verified customers only.
I checked my IPN history, and the transactions from my classifieds shop are hitting it - I'm getting notifications of payments received, as I should be.
So far this is all good, and what I want to see, until it gets to the redirect. It redirects me back to attackofthecraft.com/shop/payment_verification.php - which just pops up as blank screen.
I don't know how to make this redirect back to attackofthecraft. If I changed my website redirect on MY angrygirl gear paypal, that would work, but then it would always redirect to attackofthecraft, even after a website sale. This is a broken process, as website sales have nothing to do with attackofthecraft.
Additionally, there are going to be many, many sellers selling on my classifieds site. I can't ask every person who is going to list an ad on our classifieds to change their website redirect back to our classifieds shop - many of them have websites of their own like I do, and that would break their process as well.
What I need is for it to redirect back to the classifieds shop after purchase... from many different seller's paypal accounts - OR to simply end on the last page of paypal where it says your transaction is complete, and provide a link on that page back to the shop.
