Order numbers repeating

Thread began 3/08/2013 11:33 pm by lr_leal239405 | Last modified 3/11/2013 9:25 am by Jason Byrnes | 364 views | 1 replies |


Order numbers repeating

I have ecart 5.03. I built a site for a large organization over a year ago. When a purchase is made, the receipt with a number is generated, stored in db and emailed. In certain occassions it repeats the number and I think the person gets charged 2x. I think it happens when the person is using same computer, thus same session and they submit but then go back and try a different card. That's the first problem. But the major one is that it's happened on few occassions that the same number is overwritten for two completely different purchasers in completely different locations. So how can they be on same session? The file on DB is overwritten by another. IS THERE A FIX FOR THIS GLITCH FROM WEBASSIST? The clients are complaining to me and asking me to fix. But, of course, I didn't really build the code. I used webassist to generate it. Thank you.

add the following code to the checkout success page after the closing </html> tag:


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

// 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.

this will destroy the session when a transaction is successful.

On the confirm page, double check the eCart Store Order Summary behavior, make sure that no value is being assigned to the Primary Key OrderID column in the bindings section.

In the Order ID section make sure the Primary Key OrderID column is selected, and note the name used in the store as section. This is the name of the session that is stores the order ID

now double check the eCart Store Order Details behavior. The Order ID should be set to the relational DetailOrderID column. In the bindings section, make sure that the DetailOrderID is bound to the session created by the store order summary behavior.
