Just setup an ordinary paylink for each product. Whetehr the paylinsk returns now or via IPN makes no difference to the paylink.

On PayPal website you tell it to use IPN.

Please do not email or PM me with a question:
1: I handle over a thousand emails a day, so chances are yours would be buried in the pile.
2: All questions will only be answered in the support forums, so the answers will be useful to others.

Help will be given to install/configure/use phpCOIN, but not programming help to modify phpCOIN operations. If you are competent enough to make programming changes, you should be competent enough to read the source code and figure things out :)

If you are trying to integrate posted sample code into your website, please take into account any changes in phpCOIN made after the code sample was posted. It is discouraging to spend hours answering questions or trying to track down an issue only to find that the user has a version of phpCOIN that makes the sample irrelevant

Okay, From what i am gathering, is if i setup a regular paylink, to subcribe or buynow, just set it to return to my domain ipn to validate the customer.

Little example please cantex

Sending PayPal return info to IPN means that the IPN mod can apply a payment to an invoice that phpCOIN knows nothing about. For instance, if you create an invoice today, and another one tomorrow, but the customer does not click on a link and pay you until next week, phpCOIN would have no way of knowing which invoice to apply the payment to. But the IPN mod does a "matching" process to try and figure out which invoice to apply the payment to.

The down side is that if you want to use the WHM add-on to create the actual server account, it would NOT be triggered by IPN. WHM needs to fire on order-complete, so you either need to let PayPal return to phpCOIN orders module, or you need to modify the WHM add-on to get triggered on order-process rather than order-payment-completed.

PayPal can show you that on their site.
There is only one problem with letting PayPal handle the subscription ~ phpCOIN would NOT have an invoice to apply a payment against.

Best bet is to let phpCOIN create the invoice each month/year/whatever and have the customer click a paylink ~ you would have a complete invoice/payment trail that way.

Optionally, even if you setup PayPal paylink as a subscription item, let phpCOIN create the invoice and either NOT email it, OR add a comment to it that payment will be deducted automatically by PayPal so do NOT click the paylink. Then IPN can handle an incoming payment and apply it to the invoice. This way you get paid "automatically" even if the customer forgets, and phpCOIN has a full invoice/payment trail.
