eCart not writing back to database for a significant number of orders, despite successful payment at PayPal

We would have to reproduce it to figure out what is going wrong. It looks like no orders have failed, so that is probably working. I know that last time we looked into this I found a requirement that the session variable eCartSMC_OrderID needs to be set for your checkout to work, but in some cases it wasn't set. I saw that NEWorderID was set instead for some workflows. So we added lines 155-159 to your pp_confirm.php:


if (isset($_SESSION["NEWorderID"]) && $_SESSION["NEWorderID"] && (!isset($_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"]) || !$_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"])) {
$_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"] = $_SESSION["NEWorderID"];

I can see in the latest failed page neither eCartSMC_OrderID or NEWorderID is set. I see that the session variable set in this case is "EDITformID".

I think you may need to add the same code to cover this instance below the old one. I've added:


if (isset($_SESSION["EDITformID"]) && $_SESSION["EDITformID"] && (!isset($_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"]) || !$_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"])) {
$_SESSION["eCartSMC_OrderID"] = $_SESSION["EDITformID"];

To your pp_confirm.php page. Please download that page for your reference. The code I added is on lines 160-164.
