Double payments issue with PayPal

It’s usually PayPal servers reacting slow, not sending out the confirmation. Then customer thinks payment failed and pays again. PayPal sometimes, like 1/200 takes ,5–10 minutes to get the payment through.

Then 1 out if 3 just pays again, and maybe again…

but actually - maybe even with payment buttons s2member could prevent this? Is there some mechanism that for a single IP maybe s2member sends the same identification for paypal - so paypal can notice it’s a double payment?

It may be possible. I’m looking into it. I don’t know that the PayPal API that s2 used for the integration supports that, but I’ll see what can be done.
