    I need the return url for getting the formid and entry id. I have to fetch these information by using any action hooks in paypal confirmation hooks.

    Please do support me in this regards.

  2. For PayPal to access your localhost from the outside, your PC needs to be accessible (open a port on your router) and direct specific types of traffic (maybe port 80) to your internal machine; and, the IP address of your router needs to have a domain name (you can use a free account somewhere like DynDNS to accomplish this.)

    Your best bet would be to test on a machine that is publicly accessible, but you can configure your internal setup to allow traffic from the outside to reach your machine, including PayPal IPN

  3. Thanks for your quick reply.

    I understood that you are talking about accessing my localhost url from outside (through web).

    But, my question was to do the development in the localhost (xampp) for gravity forms with paypal. Its not about accessing the localhost URL globally.

    Please see through my request and let me know if you still needs any clarity of the request.

    Thanks again.

  4. I am still unclear on your request. I understand you are doing the development on localhost. Beyond that I need more clarification please. Sorry my first response was not helpful.

    Maybe if you share the code you are using where you need this URL we will be able to help more.
