How can I relate the eBay Checkout and PaymentStatus with the PayPal IPN PaymentStatus?
For an eBay Transaction that you get from transaction calls like
GetSellerTransactions / GetItemTransctions, some of the status enumerations can
be directly mapped to a PayPal IPN PaymentStatus. Here is a summary of
mappings that you can use as a guide for what you can expect to see:
|PayPal IPN - payment_status||eBay - Transaction.Status.CheckoutStatus||eBay - Transaction.Status.eBayPaymentStatus|
There are other enumerations both on the eBay and PayPal side, for which there are no equivalent mappings because they are not relevant outside of the context that you are in. If you are tracking a transaction then you should use the eBay API. If the payment is made via PayPal, then you should use PayPal IPN or API to get the granular status of the payment.
Note: The above discussion is relevant only if the buyer is directed to the PayPal site via eBay Checkout. If the payment is made via PayPal features like SendMoney, then the association illustrated by the mappings may not apply.
