server url error
At the end of the payment, the payment gateway calls the Instant Payment Notification URL defined in the Merchant Back Office. This call only takes place if the notification rule is configured in the Merchant Back Office.
If the payment gateway cannot reach your IPN URL, you will receive an e-mail indicating a failure during the Instant Payment Notification call. This failed call has no effect on the payment, if it was finalized correctly (accepted or rejected).
