What is the process for implementing UE with IPN?

What is the process for implementing UE with IPN?

I see several threads that mention that you can apply universal email to the end of an IPN page. But I don't see any that say how to do it. What is the trigger? etc. Can someone either point me to some documentation that explains the process or walk me through how to implement UE with PayPal IPN to automatically send an email?

Just use the "before page loads" trigger.

When you are done and have it working, add code a the top of the page for security:

<?php
if (WA_isValidPayPal()) {
$_POST["Submit_order"] = true;
} else {
die();
}
?>



WA_isValidPayPal() is a function that is included in eCart that will verify that the post is coming directly from paypal. You may have to remove that during sandbox testing.

If I use "Before Page Loads" for the trigger, wouldn't the email get sent out before I have processed the IPN to see if it was successful? Is there some advanced documentation on UE that explains the triggers better?

IPN pages are never viewed. They act as a listener page that is only accessed by papal after a transaction is processed... so no.
