Worldpay redirect to shop site

Worldpay redirect to shop site

Been looking at worldpay help documents to add either

1. An automatic redirect to a succes or failure page on the shop site after a purchase


2. Adding a redirect button on the worldpay results page to give the customer an option to return to the site.

The worldpay documentation is not easy to follow so would welcome some advice on how to achieve either option and also which would be the easiest to achieve.

Also, will the cart contents still be displayed or cleared when directed back to the shop site.

I found this through google that should help you in adding a link back to your site on the worldpay thank you page:

Thanks Jason.

Looked into this and its describing the editing of the worldpay payment page rather than the results page. The results page is the last worldpay page displayed and this is where I believe the redirect should take place.

It seems that you have to download a worldpay success file called resultY.html then add a meta-refresh or a static redirection url and upload the amended file back again. Does this sound familiar to you? The worldpay documentation is not user friendly.

This can redirect to a "thankyou for ordering" type page to display to the customer.

When the customer is redirected to this page does any code need to be added to the page to clear the cart, if so, what is it?

A manual redirect to the shop after the worldpay results page still shows the cart contents.

After contact with worldpay the inclusion of a meta refresh on their resultY.html page now works well and redirects to the shop site.

However, what is the best way to keep the customer logged in, but empty the cart, after the redirect to the success page on the site?

Is it done by adding a simple clear cart function or something more complex?

you need to destroy the session completely to start a new browsing session.

to maintain the users logged in state, you will need to store the user sessions into application variables, then destroy the session and reset the user session variables

take a look at your login page. Double click the authenticate user server behavior, and go to the third page. Make note of all of the session varaibles that are set here.

now on the success page use the following code:


// Initialize the session.
// If you are using session_name("something"), don't forget it now!

//store user sessions - create a application variable for each user session variable from the login page
$userID $_SESSION['userID'];
//add more application variables if you need to

// Unset all of the session variables.
$_SESSION = array();

// If it's desired to kill the session, also delete the session cookie.
// Note: This will destroy the session, and not just the session data!
if (ini_get("session.use_cookies")) {
$params session_get_cookie_params();
setcookie(session_name(), ''time() - 42000,
$params["path"], $params["domain"],
$params["secure"], $params["httponly"]

// Finally, destroy the session.

//restore the users session variables
$_SESSION['userID'] = $userID;

make sure to use the correct sesssion names in the store user session section

I've added the two extra session variables that are set from the login page and added the code to the success page.

After the worldpay redirect to the success page the quickcart in the header still shows the number of items and total from the purchase. However if "view cart" is clicked this is cleared to zero.

Is it possible to have the quickcart reset to zero as the page loads?

Success page is attached.

add the code I gave you at line 1 rather than at the end.

Ok, moved the code to line 1 and this causes the quickcart in the header to disappear on page load after redirect from worldpay.

Logging in again returns the quickcart empty.

The system is set up so that the quickcart is only displayed for UK users, who then use the worldpay checkout. Non UK users are not shown an "add to cart" in the header or anywhere else and are instructed to phone in their orders. This system is working perfectly so far.

Ideally would like the return to the success page from worldpay (UK users only) to display the quickcart empty on page load. Is this possible?

Modified success page attached.

try adding @session_start(); just before resetting the session variables:

$_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserID'] = $userID;
$_SESSION['UserLevel'] = $userLevel;
$_SESSION['UserCountry'] = $userCountry;

Yes, that did the trick.

Many thanks.
