    Hi Welt... Your solution of creating a blank CMS page... only gets rid of the warning from PayPal by giving a fake "ok" It doesn't solve the root issue. We need IPN to work fully. We had it working fine before we updated to Magento 2.2

    Please if anyone knows the real fix can you let me know at: emily@divegearexpress.com ? thanks! We are despite to get IPN working properly again.

    If only using IPN with Magento, you should not experience any issues. Check if IPN was not disabled in your PayPal account, sometimes after a number of warnings it is automatically disabled. 

    The blank page is necessary when you are selling on multiple channels via PayPal. Whenever you are selling via a 3rd party channel, Magento vill be notified via IPN leading to warnings as the sale was not done via Magento store. For this reason PayPal dev team recommended us solution from the article.

    Hi Welt, I am operating two websites which point to one paypal... as you mentioned above. 

    I am trying to set up the IPN for the websites, but where you say to create a blank page, I am unsure as to which website this is to be created on. I have an ecommerce website www.908ltd.co.uk for engraving materials and an ecommerce website www.gardenlabelling.co.uk which is for garden labels. I dont want to put in a URL in the notification URL space in paypal settings only for a customer from one website to be sent back to a website they are not ordering from.. if that makes sense. 

    I just really want to know what the URL is that I need to put in there.

    Thanks in advance - email address = luke.holliday@908ltd.co.uk

    Hi, thank you for your reply.

    Sorry I do not understand what you mean. I am willing to create a page but is this page going to be viewable by my visitors?
