Bypassing Address Form

Bypassing Address Form

I'd like to have Paypal handle taking the client's address and sending a confirmation e-mail and so would like to bypass having the address form in my checkout pages. Instead, I would like to have the cart page go directly to the read-only cart and then on to Paypal.

I'm unable to find any documention that outlines the steps to do this with eCart. Can I use the eCart interface to do this or do I have to code it manually (and if so how?)?

Thanks!!!

on the cart page, you could set the checkout button behavior in the server behaviors panel to point to the confirm page instead of going to the checkout page.

This did bypass the address form page, thank you.

I do have another question, though. Are there any more settings that need to be changed? When I walk through the checkout process I get the following error from the Paypal page:

"Unable to process payment. Please contact the merchant as the shipping address provided by the merchant is invalid, and the merchant has requested that your order must be shipped to that address."

Where am I sending them info about the shipping information?

Thank you, your help is invaluable!

on the confirm page, look for a hidden element named "address_override", make sure the value is set to 0:

<input type="hidden" name="address_override" id="address_override" value="0" />

That worked!

Would you recommend deleting the billing and shipping columns or just commenting them out?

I'm not sure if the php code would be affected if I simply started deleting the info...

You don't really need to do anything to the billing and shipping elements, comment or delete them if you like, but it's not necessary.
