CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.2.4 with PayPal IPN Support Released

Hi!

We’re happy to introduce you to another minor CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor release.

Meet CS-Cart 4.2.4 and Multi-Vendor 4.2.4!

CS-Cart 4.2.4 PayPal Realex

In addition to improvements and fixes (see the changelog), this version includes PayPal IPN support and a new Realex payment method.

PayPal IPN

We have been working closely with our colleagues at PayPal to make your experience with PayPal in CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.2.4 even better.

IPN, which stands for Instant Payment Notifications, is PayPal’s message service that sends notifications when a change in a transaction occurs. In 4.2.4, we use PayPal IPN to synchronize order status in your admin panel with the corresponding transaction status at PayPal.

For example, when a PayPal transaction is complete, your store will receive a message from PayPal IPN that will update the associated CS- order’s status. In the PayPal add-on settings, you can choose how PayPal statuses should correspond to the ones used in your store. Handy!

Upgrade

Within a week, all store owners should see the update in their admin panels’ Update Centers. If you don’t want to wait, you can download the package manually from your Help Desk account’s File area (you must have an active upgrade subscription).


As always, we’re happy to hear your ideas on the UserVoice. If you have an issue to report, feel free to do so using our bug tracker.

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube for the latest news and videos.

Thanks!

    Thanks for the Paypal IPN update, we had a similar system years ago with another shop package and it was really really helpful, surprised CS Cart did not have this feature until now (old shop software was from 2006!)

    Do we need to change the payment processor?

      Hi Wojtek,

      Upgrade process will do everything for you. If you already have a paypal payment processor it will be updated automatically.
