Linking more than one form to Paypal account

  1. Sophie

    Hello,

    Just wondering if you can link more than one form to your paypal account?

    I understand that you need to have the IPN enabled but we have several websites for different events ie. Christmas, New Years Eve where we want to take payments.

    It doesn't look like you can enter multiple IPNs so does that mean all of the confirmation forms will go from the IPN that was registered?

    eg. We have our gift vouchers on docksidegroup.com.au - this is where the IPN url is taken from.
    We also want to make payments from nye.docksidegroup.com.au and melbournecup.docksidegroup.com.au.

    Is this possible? Or do I need to create one big "Super form" with all of these different purchase options on the one website?

    Thanks for your help!

  2. Yes, you can add multiple PayPal Feeds using the PayPal Add-On and they can use the same PayPal account or a different PayPal account... it's up to you.

  3. I don't think this question was answered and I'm wondering the same thing.

    Let's say I have website1.com and I setup GF w/PayPal add-on and it tells me to add http://website1.com/?page=gf_paypal_ipn as the notification URL in my PayPal settings.

    Then I have website2.com and I setup GF w/PayPal add-on and it tells me to add http://website2.com/?page=gf_paypal_ipn as the notification URL in my PayPal settings however PayPal only allows ONE notification URL to be set.

    So do I have to open a new PayPal account for every site I want to take payments from while using GF w/PayPal add-on?

    ...am I missing something?

  5. So the deal is, PayPal requires you to enter a URL in that field when enabling IPN. But, that URL is just the default IPN URL. The actual IPN URL is passed as a parameter by the PayPal Add-On after every submissions, which overrides the default URL. So, you can use the same PayPal email/account for multiple domains.

  6. Good to know.

    Also, if you contact PayPal, they can set you up with a 'child' account that is attached to your main PayPal account. This is essentially a separate account so you can use one for every site you have (and use a separate IPN URL) and they will all connect to the same 'parent' account.
