Hi all,

Since 1 month ago, paypal subscription stop working and I dont know why.

People can make the payment via paypal, I received the money, but these users doesn't upgrade your account to vip automatically, and I dont know why or what I have to look.

now I have to manually, upgrade the user account to vip.

Any ideas?

Best Regards

PD: In the past , the subscription have been working fine during years.

Login into your PayPal account and go to the IPN search/history page.
It should list the payments and any error code the IPN request returned.

I found this old email of Paypal about my problem:

Dear XXX,

Please check your server that handles PayPal Instant Payment Notification (IPN) messages. Messages sent to the following URL(s) are not being received:


If you do not recognize this URL, you may be using a service provider that is using IPN on your behalf. Please contact your service provider with the above information.

Once you or your service provider fix this problem, you or your service provider can resend the failed messages from the IPN History page. If this problem continues, PayPal may disable the IPN feature for your account.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this issue.



NEVER give your password to anyone, including PayPal employees. Protect yourself against fraudulent websites by opening a new web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Firefox) and typing in the PayPal URL every time you log in to your account.

How can I solve this ??? Regards

Well, looking at your IPN history, the status is set to "Disabled".
I checked the site of PayPal:
