Instant payment notifications (IPNs)

IPN is a message service that automatically notifies merchants on transaction events. It is used to automate office administrative functions, including automatically fulfilling orders, and providing customers with order status.

Payment gateways use static or dynamic IPNs. Static IPNs must be configured within the gateway's user interface, or in some cases, they may need to be set by your account manager. Dynamic IPNs are pre-configured and do not require any further action. If you are unsure whether your payment gateway uses static or dynamic IPNs, contact your gateway account manager.

All static IPNs have the following structure:{gatewayName}/{merchantId}


If your preferred gateway is not listed, send Rebilly an integration request. Rebilly will complete a new integration at no cost.
