When I first turned on the IPN Notification, I specified Instant Payment Notification (IPN) URL to "http://localhost/test.asp" which I realized later on was wrong. Therefore,I went back to change the URL back to: "http://www.abc.com/validateipn.asp".
However, when I test the shopping cart and hit <continue> after payment confirmed, it tried to go to "http://localhost/test.asp". I have verified that the IPN URL shown in my profile is correct. What could be the problem?

Thanks
Kid

If you are using the 'notify_url' variable in the code, it will over ride the URL you place in your Profile of your PayPal account. Check that you are either not using the variable in the code or that the value for the variable is correct to the IPN code you are using.

I have checked the payment notification code, and am not using notify_url. Hmmm Would this be problem from paypal? Please give me some suggestion on how to solve this problem.

Check your PayPal pay button for "notify_url".
