Hi Jason, thanks for the quick response. So I followed your advice and updated eCart. I am able to connect with my MySQLi connection which is great but what's better is that the "local checkout" server behaviors are now available! Maybe Ray already tinkered with it but I thought you guys should know that it is working now with that update.
If I continue to use the local checkout behaviors, how would you recommend I update my database with the users order data? If I insert the data when they click the purchase button I worry that if the transaction fails wouldn't the data be inserted? Then I thought I thought I could have the data follow to the "success" page and when that page loads insert the data? If I can do it this way how can I have it insert a new line for each item in the order and how would I "dump" that info after it gets inserted?
Once I get the checkout process sorted out, I'll upload it to my server and check if Authorize.Net is working and if not, then I'll PM you FTP access so you take a look.
