Even if we accepted resent IPNs, resending the IPN would not add any info that was not already sent and logged the first time around. If PayPal doesn't have that data to begin with, they cannot pass it to us. If you did not enable the Shipping/Buyer's Address setting for the product when the buyer first purchased it, then no address would ever have been collected during checkout, and thus no country data which would have been part of those addresses.

The best we might suggest is extracting Buyer IPs from your logs, so you could run a geographical IP lookup against those, as public IPs are typically assigned in country-specific blocks.]]>

I am already using my custom script to insert data into a database, however until now I didn't insert the customers country, which I need badly now for all my previous customers.

Unfortunatelly I can't seem to access this information (the country) in either my Paypal account or the log at "Admin > View/Download Transaction Log" you mentioned, it is simply not listed anywhere.

This is why I wanted to resend the IPN data and then update each DB entry automatically. Resending IPNs is actually no problem with Paypal (see here: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_admin_IPNOperations).

The only problem seems to be that the e-junkie script the IPN is resent to (https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/ipn_ext.php) does not process the resent data anymore and does not send it on to my own script. Why is that? Would that not be an easy fix?

Thank you,

Thomas]]>

For future orders, if you want us to forward the IPN data to a script at your end after we process the sale, you would want to use our Integration method:

I need to resend several IPN messages in order to update my database with country information of my customers. The problem is I can not change the URL the IPN is sent to in Paypal and e-junkie (where they are sent now) does not seem to recognize or process them again. Is it possible to change that through e-junkie somehow?


Or if not, does anyone know another way I could extract this data from Paypal? I looked around but the customers country doesn't seem to be included in any other data that can be viewed or exported...


Any help would be appreciated as this is quite important to me.

Thanks!
