I'm in Paypal and it's asking for a URL, not in the docs

I'm trying to setup IPN, but paypal wants a URL to talk to. I can't find this in the ecomerce docs. Any ideas?

Edit Instant Payment Notification (IPN) settings

 

PayPal sends IPN messages to the URL that you specify below.

To start receiving IPN messages, enter the notification URL and select Receive IPN messages below. To temporarily stop receiving IPN messages, select Do not receive IPN messages below. PayPal continues to generate and store IPN messages until you select Receive IPN messages again (or turn off IPN).

It's done automatically by the submission form ocPortal generates. Leave that blank.

Paypal won't let you turn on IPN with out a URL. 

I used /data/ecommerce.php, and I made my primary email address on pay pal the same as the one I used in ocportal. One of those things fixed it. 

Now It's ending with a less serious error I'll dig and google :-)

I don't think you need to turn on IPN on PayPal's end for the same reason above. You did find the right URL though.

Fix for other issue coming…
