    Admittedly I've always been confused by PayPal IPN and as a result I've just avoided using any scripts that require it. I'm interested in OIO Publisher, but worried that IPN will mess up my other sales.

    If I set IPN in order to be able to use OIO, will notification be sent when purchases are made at my other sites where I won't be using OIO and IPN has not been required? When IPN is activated within PayPal, will notification be sent for all purchases that are made, and if so, what happens when notification gets sent for non-OIO purchases? Will that purchase be denied?

    You don't need to worry about setting an IPN url for OIO in your paypal account, as the url is included in the html form the user clicks on to make the purchase.

    This value will over-ride any url set in your paypal account, and so won't interfere with any other sales.

    You could also use the same principle for any other sales, by including a hidden input line in the form used to send a user to paypal:

    <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="IPN_URL_HERE" />
