Can I use same Paypal account for xenforo and Woocommerce (on a different URL)

I currently have two payapl accounts, Paypal account 1 is for xenforo user upgrades and Paypal account 2 for woocommerce sales (on a different domain)


Paypal account 1 xenforo set up with IPN =
Code:
https://XFdomain.com/payment_callback.php

Paypal account 2 Woocommerce with IPN =
Code:
http://WCdomain.com/?wc-api=WC_Gateway_Paypal

So can I use Paypal account 1 with both, given that WC documentation says it requires the IPN as mentioned above for acc 2, but I'm not sure xf actually requires the IPN as in acc1

This question seems to be in the wrong place now, the question is about what xenforo requires for the IPN URL and if it matters if it is different, not really about forum management.

However hopefully someone can still help me. Or maybe I just need to send in a support ticket.

The IPN field is largely irrelevant as XF passes the correct URL to PayPal when the upgrade is purchased.

However, if it is set for XF, it just needs to be: your Board URL/payment_callback.php .

This is my main point, the ipn for the other site that is woocommerce must be set for the specified woocommerce setting that other domain.

I’m concerned if I use that it will screw up the xenForo site for upgrades

Are you saying it's OK for the IPN to be the one specified for the other domain with Woocommerce settings?

I understand from what you said this will be OK for upgrades as they are purchased but will it cause problems for:

  • Existing upgrades and termination of them after the period expires
  • Recurring payments e.g. either the upgrade continuing with payments or stopping when the payments stop?
