eCart6 store PayPal transaction ID

Thread began 12/04/2014 9:55 am by troyd | Last modified 1/12/2015 11:39 am by troyd | 1639 views | 17 replies


The $_SESSION didn't show anything for the transaction ID however, when I captured the $_POST I found that it was posted to the success page as $_POST['PPREF'] So that worked to allow me to store it in the orders table. Yay!

One other thing that is not adding up in this area is how the email receipt grab the payment method.
The email receipt has this, to show if it was a PayPal account that was used or a CC.


if (!isset($_SESSION["PayPal_ECO_Token"])) {
        <p style="padding: 5px 0 5px 10px; margin:0;"> <strong style="color:#222847;  font-weight:bold; margin-right:9px;">Card number:</strong> xxxx xxxx xxxx <?php echo(WA_getSavedFormValue('[FORMREF2]','CardLast4')); ?><br />
                <strong style="color:#222847;  font-weight:bold; margin-right:9px;">Expiration date:</strong><?php echo(WA_getSavedFormValue('[FORMREF2]','Card_Exp_Month')); ?>/<?php echo(WA_getSavedFormValue('[FORMREF2]','Card_Exp_Year')); ?><br />
                <strong style="color:#222847;  font-weight:bold; margin-right:9px;">Security number:</strong> <?php echo(WA_getSavedFormValue('[FORMREF2]','Card_CVV')); ?></p>        
} else {
        <p style="padding: 5px 0 5px 10px; margin:0;"><strong style="color: #003399;  font-weight:bold; margin-right:9px;">PayPal account:</strong> <?php echo(WA_getSavedFormValue('CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default','Email_Address')); ?></p>

The $_SESSION["PayPal_ECO_Token"] is not set.
But the email Receipt shows "PayPal account:" even on CC payments.
What I want is the intended "Card Number: xxxx xxxx xxxx (cardlast4) ..." for CC payments.

Which part of the if else statement is not correct? Any idea?

BTW. The $_POST does return the last 4, exp. date and method. $_POST['ACCT'], $_POST['EXPDATE'], $_POST['METHOD'] are all included. I should be able to hand code the statement to create a new session array and then use that, but before I do, I wanted to find out if these details where suppose to be working as designed.
