How to Resend the PayPal IPN?

It is possible that a user paid for a membership, but because of an issue with the IPN arriving correctly to MemberPress, the user's Subscription and/or Transaction did not update correctly. This is usually because of a misconfiguration of your PayPal - MemberPress integration, but it could also be another reason.

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Find the correct PayPal Transaction ID by searching with the user's email (contact PayPal support if you are having troubles locating the exact transaction).

  5. Then at the top of the list you’ll see a “resend selected” button, click this, such as can be seen here:
