In my form for the subscription buttons.. i'm using the business variable. I set it to my accounts email address (which is a business account).. this works fine.

However, i have not tested it live with the IPN. Will the IPN return the business variable.. the receiver_email or both? And if both will it set them to the same email address?

Right now i have the ipn using the receiver_email.. is this wrong should it be using the business variable instead?

You'll get both.

receiver_email is the primary email on the receiving PayPal account.

business is an echo of business.

They may or may not be the same.

I had the same issue...when using subscriptions
paypal IPN only returns "BUSINESS" and NOT "RECIEVER_MAIL"

This screwed me up for a while....

Good luck
