Updating a remote database after PayPal IPN returns successfully.

  1. gmw

    I have a GF registration form set up on a WPEngine site. The form includes the PayPal Standard add-on. Is it possible to place some PHP code in one of your hooks to connect to and update a remote mySQL database on a BlueHost hosting account. Would the gform_paypal_post_ipn filter be the best choice?

  2. Yes, gform_paypal_post_ipn is how you would take action after receiving notification of a successful payment.
