What is IPN?

Instant payment notification (IPN) is a method for online retailers to automatically track purchases and other server-to-server communication in real time. This allows e-commerce systems the opportunity to store payment transactions, order information and other sales internally.

IPN messages can represent payment success or failures, order transaction status changes, accounting ledger information and many others depending on the payment gateway.
