PHP IPN, .Net IPN, and Perl IPN Tutorials are Available

A quick search online will return a huge variety of IPN tutorials written for PHP, ASP.Net, and even Perl. These tutorials can be a good starting point for an experience programmer. However, the many PHP IPN tutorials out there do not necessarily ensure a functioning order processing system. There is a lot more that goes into a reliable system than what most of the IPN templates and tutorials provide. Unless you are an experienced code, it is better to use a turn-key service.
