How to enable IPN notifications in your integration
Notifications are messages sent by the Mercado Pago server from events that take place in your application. IPN (Instant Payment Notification) is a mechanism that allows your application to receive notifications from Mercado Pago, reporting the status of a certain payment, chargeback and merchant_order, through an HTTP POST call to report on their transactions.
