Does Payflow Pro Recurring Billing support IPN? I tried with DPRP(Direct Payment Recurring Payment) & it's sending me IPN message just fine.

But after lots of research as well, couldn't able to figure out a way to incorporate IPN for Payflow Pro Recurring Billing.

There is one feasible way, that I can see at this point of time, is the ”Inquiry” action to get the profile/payment specific detail. But for that, I have to run a cron, which’ll check the status/payment detail of the profile every time it runs, which I think will be cumbersome.

People, Can anyone please shade any insight into it?

We use the IPN for PayPal Pro and adaptive payment systems for general incoming payment tracking. We run a cron once a week to check for failed payments (subscription service) internally. If we find one, we re-run the transaction. We also use gettransaction detail API calls for other detailed information if needed. Though, we rely mostly on the IPN system.
