ok to some degree I got part of the PayPal Express working. but a few problems....
1. I cannot seem to get my delivery options (different costs) to paypal website.
2. If I chose products with different product options (these options have seperate prices) then the website doesnt pass to paypal it goes to the websites failure page.
If you have time i will attach the original checkout/confirm (paypal standard) page and the new checkout/confirm page with (paypal express)
I was thinking about putting the delivery options on the cart page but thought in terms of workflow it should be kept on the checkout page.
What I am hoping to achieve is that with paypal express, customer enters a voucher code on cart page, on checkput page they enter billing/shipping address + chose a shipping price then they go to paypal make payment, on confirm page summary of costs. they click on place order and the success page will show receipt, send email, update voucher table in database and create order detail and order summary records and then clear cart...I wouldnt have a problem with the success page. Im guessing if everything is stored in sessions then it should be pretty much straight forward. im just having trouble passing the delivery charges to paypal and also displaying product options on paypal. and also if the voucher code used makes the order <= then it should just go to the confirm page since there would be nothing to pay.
all i require is a few pointers hopefully. if im on the right track. if im completely wrong then i need to order a premier ticket asap as need to go live this week.
