Hello,

I thought I'd post this solution here should anyone need it.

If you use a standard PayPal account with your MijoShop / OpenCart website you need to enable the IPN (Instant Payment Notification) URL in your PayPal account. Doing this will ensure customers carts are cleared of products on successful payment at PayPal.

If you don't do this products are left in customers carts if they do not click 'Return to Website' after completing a successful payment at PayPal.

This only becomes an issue when the customer shops at your site again and discover products from their last order have been added to their new order. Worse still is that some people don't realise this until after making a payment and then ask for a refund on the products they had already purchased before which becomes a time consuming admin job.

How to implement PayPal IPN Notification URL in MijoShop OpenCart
  • Login to PayPal.
  • Click My PayPal
  • Click the little profile image top right.
  • Click Profile and Settings
  • Click My Selling Tools
  • On this page click Instant Payment Notifications - Update
  • Enter the MijoShop PayPal IPN notification URL below. Replace yoursite.com with your domain name.
  • http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_mijoshop&route=payment/pp_standard/callback
  • Enable & Save
  • Go back to your Profile.
  • My Selling Tools
  • Click Website Preferences - Update
  • Turn on Auto Return for Website Payments and enter the IPN URL again
  • Turn on Payment Data Transfer (Optional)
  • Turn off Encrypted Website Payments
  • Turn on PayPal Account Optional
  • Turn off Contact Telephone Number
  • Set PayPal Express Checkout Settings to no.
  • Save.
Doing the above will automatically return customers to your MijoShop OpenCart website completing the transaction and thus clearing the cart session products on payment completion. Even if your customers do not return to your site the Instant Payment Notification URL will take care of that for you.
