Ruby on Rails PayPal IPN Code Example

Tags: Uncategorized rails ruby paypal integration

I thought I’d share the skeleton of some code I had to write for PayPal’s backend IPN API.

This method exists inside of a controller class. I’m certainly not saying that this is the best or most elegant way to handle this, just that I couldn’t find any examples to rip-off myself. :)

Let me know if you have any suggestions. WARNING: this code does not communicate with PayPal’s servers over SSL.
