I have ecart 4.5.2
I've tried to do is add an insert server behaviour to my checkout form which I had modified to match the info I needed to store. But this stopped the info from being sent to paypal
I've tried to insert order details using the database manipulation server behaviour also modifying to store the data I required. This is the method that worked best but replaced the record in the database rather than added a new record.
I read that you suggested to someone else doing a registration not to use the add to cart simply move straight to checkout and that is what I am going try today.
A second problem is in the back of my mind is that the user will be able to add his details to the database and then when he gets to pay he can decide to pull out without paying or do I simply delete it from the database if I don't get an email confirmation from paypal?
Any help appreciated
