eCart with custom application form.

eCart with custom application form.

I am trying to use eCart with a custom built application form so that when the application form has been complete by the user, they are redirected to PayPal ( using PayPal express checkout ) too make payment.

So far I have done this:

- Created eCart object
- Added eCart object to Application form.
- Added eCart ‘Add to cart’ behaviour to Application Form submit button
- Created cart.php page then used ‘display manager’ to develop page.
- Used ‘Checkout Wizard’ to create cart process pages.

My first issue is trying to do build this in a subfolder ( called test-site ) so I can upload to the remote server and test it remotely without effecting the current site. Subsequently another reason for doing this and not just test it locally was so I can give you access to the issues I anticipated ;-)

Problems start because the build process of the checkout wizard keeps wanting to place files created in the site root then problems start with pages having links to php files that are incorrect and I end up in a complete mess.

After manually attempting to update the pages so all files and pages are linked correctly my next issue is this.

In a similar application process I built, with your help, once the application is complete and the user is forwarded to the cart page. After clicking the ‘checkout’ ( proceed ) button they are re-directed straight to PayPal.

I am unsure how to replicate this. So guidance on this would be much appreciated.

At the moment after clicking the checkout button it brings up an error page on the remote server. But on my local testing server it re-directs to the ‘checkout failure’ page built by ‘Checkout wizard’

you can view the application page here.

Please feel free to test the form to see the issue.

I have also attached all eCart pages wit the application page.

Thanks in advance
