I just thought of that this morning and have sent off email to the affiliate to verify. What you say above makes sense – will keep you posted.
UPDATE – you are 103% correct! I just fixed it for the affiliate and things are fine. Thanks!March 16, 2010 at 5:18 pm in reply to: Clicks track, affiliate not credited, sale goes thru, email doesn't get sent #18885
Actually, the instant-download product links DO appear. that’s what is so baffling to me.
I’ll check out the other ideas and let you know.
UPDATE – I just tried it as a sandbox thingee, and got:
IPN delivery failed. HTTP error code 403: Forbidden
UPDATE #2 – just researched my problem and found a suggestion to deactivate Bad Behavior. Did that, the sandbox thingee went thru fine, yay! Will test out a purchase later on and keep you posted.
Thanks for all the help!!

Yes indeed, there’s an IPN failure:
[03/16/2010 11:02 AM] – SUCCESS :Paypal Class Initiated by 188.8.131.52
[03/16/2010 11:02 AM] – SUCCESS :Post string :
[03/16/2010 11:02 AM] – SUCCESS :Connection to http://www.paypal.com successfuly completed.
[03/16/2010 11:02 AM] – FAILURE :IPN validation failed.
[03/16/2010 11:02 AM] – SUCCESS :Paypal class finished.
But when I click on Return to Merchant, I do see the product download and the cart has been reset to empty. I receive email from Paypal saying “Notification of payment received”. It’s just that the email doesn’t get sent off to the customer.
Here are my Paypal settings:
Instant Payment Notification ON, Message delivery disabled
Auto Return for Website Payments: OFF
Block Non-encrypted Website Payment: OFF
Payment Data Transfer: OFF
I am having the same issues – a direct link/click does NOT get recorded. Is there an update to the plugin that I’m missing?
I posted a question at their forums and will let you know. Thanks!
