TIP: PayPal and Progress Bar

Hi all I wanted to share this quick tip...

I had found that customers on an ecommerce website I developed were pressing the PAYPAL submit button a few times since the transaction can take several seconds to process (this would result in the PAYPAL transaction failing) and unknowing customers may feel nothing is happening....

well my tip is to use the WebAssist Progress Bar (usually for image uploads) Just wrap the Progress Bar server behaviour around the PAYPAL form and will display while the PAYPAL transaction is processing (preventing customers from clicking the submit button to many times! and it looks more professional :)

Does work - doesn't work!

Hi Jason,

I applied the function to one page and it works brilliantly, I applied it to another page and somewhere along the way, it gets the path mixed up

Check out the path

The path to the jscript has just been tacked onto the end of the URL rather than the webassist directory

Any ideas
