Can PayPal's IPN be used for mulitple sites? I have 2 sites, one of which is a store selling physical goods, and the other is a subscription based site selling web-hosting accounts. Could I develop a single IPN and use it for both sites? They will both be hosted on different domains and PayPal only allows 1 IPN.

Thanks in advance,

As far as I know you should not have a problem with using IPN on multiple sites the only thing you will need to do is use the Notify_URL variable to specify the IPN proccessing page on each site.

Thanks, Justin.

To follow up Justin's correct answer, you can specify a Notification URL in one of two ways: 1) in your PayPal account Profile or 2) as a "notify_url" FORM field in your Web Accept button(s). If you only need one Notification URL, the configuring it in the Profile is preferred. Using the second method enables you to use multiple Notification URLs with one PayPal account.

A quick way to get to Instant Payment Notification Preferences is: https://www.paypal.com/prefs-ipn
