Email to client

Email to client

I have created eCart before. Now a new client wants it slightly differently.

On confirm.php, click checkout and the information is just sent as an email.

The user is then taken to confirm which simply says thanks etc we will contact you shortly. All the payment is done internally as these are Franchise members of the website. Payment details are stored by the Client who bills his Franchisees privately.

I've worked out how to capture the info as a repeat region all listed at the foot of the page I just can't work out how to then email the data.

I have eCart, Dataassist and Universal email. But Universal Email wants it as HTML input boxes and everything which won't work with the PHP repeat regions.

** Sorry to amend ~ in the thread above the sentence should read "The user is then taken to checkout_success.php..."

After thinking it over, I've had an idea to save the info in a Session, somehow, and then on the checkout_success.php page 'onload' automatically send an email with the data as part of an input text box?

Would that work? Could anyone give me the details or a better way.

Many thanks

I would run the checkout wizard with local checkout and choose not to include express checkout in the wizard.

Then remove the local checkout server behavior on the confirm page and update the store cart details server behavior to redirect to the success page.
