submit additional form on confirm page

i have a client, for whom I have created some complex shipping calculations, based on a combination of cart weight and shipping zip code.

this all works well, but now the client wants to display the shipping prices in a form, during the checkout process.

I don't think its a good idea to add another page to the checkout process, so the most logical place to put this form is at the top of the confirm.php page.

At this point, I know the cart weight and the shipping destination, the customer having already completed their shipping and billing details.

By default, the shipping method is ground, and i have the form displaying the shipping prices and expected delivery dates for all methods of shipping.

i would like the customer to be able to choose another method of shipping (if desired), - the option is stored as a session variable - and reload the page, which will update the shipping line in the eCart object.

the problem I have, is that when the form is submitted, it redirects to the checkout_success page, as if the confirm order button was pressend

by default the trigger for the Local Checkout , store order summary, store order details and the Universal Email behaviors are set to use the Currant Page submit.


You will need to change the triggers for those behaviors to happen only when the confirm button is clicked.

thanks Jason.

just to make sure i read this correctly...

i opened up the server behaviors panel and edited the behavior for

store order summary

store order details

universal email

and set the trigger to 'submit order button pressed' for each of the three server behaviors.

is that it ?

you will also need to change the trigger for the local checkout behavior.

cLocal checkout server behavior i not in my list.

i think this is because the site is not yet transactional, but simply places an order, updates the database, and then redirects to the order confirmation page.

one other thing - the modify information button on the confirm page no longer takes me back to the checkout page, which has all of the shipping and billing addresses.

can you tell me the onclick behavior i need to use to do this ?

i tried "goToURL('plugins/checkout.php')" but the confirm.php page reloads.

<input type="submit" alt="Modify information" id="modify_information" value="Modify information" onclick="document.location.href='plugins/checkout.php';return false;"/>

sorry, one last thing

the billing and shipping addresses displayed on the confirm page 'disappear' if I update my shipping form, as they are populated from the checkout form post values.

The session variables are still there, so...

is the best way to overcome this just to replace

<?php echo((isset($_POST["firstname"]))?$_POST["firstname"]:"") ?>



with

<?php echo((isset($_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_firstname"]))?$_SESSION["eCartCheckoutForm_firstname"]:"") ?>



throughout all the fields ?

yes, that would be a good way to fix the problem.
