I'm building my IPN JSP and am trying to figure out when the txn_types happen... After looking through the docs this is how I think it works

1) Signup - A new user signs up.

a) A subscr_signup is sent
B) Several subscr_payment may be sent
c) A subscr_failed maybe sent
d) If a subscr_failed is sent, then a subscr_eot is sent

2) Cancelation - A user cancels his subscription.

a) A subscr_cancel is sent immediately
B) A subscr_eot is sent at the end of current term.

3) Modify - A user modifies his subscription.

a) Several subscr_payments may be sent
B) A subscr_failed maybe sent
c) If a subscr_failed is sent, then a subscr_eot is sent

4) Payment - Regularly Scheduled

a) Several subscr_payments may be sent

5) Failed Payment - After Retries

a) A subscr_failed is sent
B) A subscr_eot is sent

6) Normal EOT - If subscription expires

a) A subscr_eot is sent

If this is how everything works it would be safe to only worry about subscr_signup, subscr_modify, and subscr_eot.

Yes, the easiest thing to do is handle subscr_signup and susbcr_eot.

If subscr_modify is for the same service but just a different set of terms, you can even disregard that. If you actually ahve different levels of service, you will need to process subscr_modify.

Hi,
I would like to know if subscr_modify is sent immediately or when the modification take effect.
