How to Enable Instant PayPal Notifications

Enable IPN in your Paypal Account

from PayPal's Help Document:
Setting Up IPN Notifications on PayPal

  1. Log in to your PayPal business account at www.paypal.com.

  2. Click the settings icon at the top of your PayPal account page and then click Account Settings.

  3. On the Notifications page, click the Update link for the Instant payment notifications item.

  4. Click on Choose IPN Settings

You can return to the Instant Payment Notification page to modify your notification URL, disable your listener, or turn off IPN.

NOTE: Paypal updates their database without informing us. If the above  steps no longer work please let the FASO Support Team know. 
We found the above directions by doing a search at PayPal for "IPN Notification".

Adjust setting in your FASO account:

  • from FASO account Control Panel
  • Click Commerce icon (far right on upper row)
  • for field 'BETA - Automatically Mark Originals Sold', select Yes
  • Save Changes

Here is additional information on this feature.

If a client purchases a piece that meets the following conditions, it will be automatically marked sold:

  • The type is Original
  • The Availability is Available
  • The Number Available for Sale is not more than 1 [1 is the default]
  • IPN (Instant payment notification) is enabled on your Paypal account.

After the sale is completed, Paypal notifies FASO of the sale and we mark the piece sold.

For more info on Artwork Availability Options, see this FAQ:
Artwork Availability Options

NOTE: This feature will not mark a piece as sold until the buyer has actually checked out on Paypal. Just placing it in the shopping cart does not affect the status.

A CAVEAT: Paypal sometimes takes a couple of minutes to send the notification. So the piece might not appear to be sold for a minute or two.
