I just migrated my pre-existing custom coded site to word-press / s2member and here is the gotcha…
In the previous site, I used paypal buttons and set the custom value equal to the id of the subscriber so I could quickly update the user subscription when it came back from paypal.
Now it turns out that I am getting this in the IPN return…
0 => ‘IPN received on: Sun Feb 17, 2013 3:39:31 pm UTC’,
now my custom value is ‘custom’ => ‘7648’, in the ipn return. New subscription are working just fine through the site, but I have several hundred recurring subscriptions
I modified my stored paypal button code to the domain name, but of course the custom value is stored in paypal with the profile, and I can’t modify it.
How do I get around this? Do I need to ask paypal to modify all of the recurring subscriptions to have their custom value updated to the domain name?
I guess I don’t know the reasoning behind this specific code and why this is an expectation of s2member.
