Create a Merchant Code in eCart

Thread began 7/09/2012 10:29 am by robvoigt9434728 | Last modified 7/09/2012 12:58 pm by Jason Byrnes | 274 views | 1 replies |


Create a Merchant Code in eCart


Currently my eCart and local checkout pages are set up and running fine.

However at this point I need to add a "Merchant code" to the checkout process. This Merchant code would be where a Gym Owner (we sell cross fit jump ropes) would enter a code I give them and I would need that Gym Owner code to be stored with the OrderID in my MySQL database.

With this Gym Owner code I can then see what orders are taking place at different gym locations.

Would you be able to point me in the right direction to implement this?

Thanks in advance.

on the checkout page, add the text field to input the code:

<input type="text" name="merchentCode" id="merchentCode" value="" />

on the confirm page, there will be a collection of hidden elements near the bottom

add another hidden element using the sale name as the text field on the checkout page to capture the value that is posted:

<input type="hidden" name="merchentCode" id="merchentCode" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["merchentCode"]))?$_POST["merchentCode"]:""?>" />

next add a Set Session Value behavior. on the Server Behaviors panel, click the plus button and select eCart -> General -> Set Session value. set the trigger to any page post. Set the name to merchentCode and for the value, select the merchentCode form element.

In your orders table, create a merchentCode column, then edit the store order summary behavior on the confirm page to bind the merchentCode column to the merchentCode form element
