ecart 6 checkout wizard insert order details

ecart 6 checkout wizard insert order details

Hi Jason,

I need a little bit of clarification on eCart 6. I ran the checkout wizard using PayPal Express as the payment provider and on the Orders panel I selected default-remote for the Orders table and default for the order details .

The wizard created the pages, but it did not place the insert orders and details behavior on the confirm.php page. It also created the confirm_cart.php page.

What is the differences between the confirm.php and the confirm_cart.php page? Also, I can manually add the insert orders/details behavior but I wanted to make sure I did not miss something when running the checkout wizard.

Thx
Eric

The confirm cart page is a cart display page that shows before you confirm the order, confirm page sends the order to paypal.

the store order summary and details will not be added to either of those pages, it will be added o the pp_confirm page, after the order is passed to paypal, paypal redirects back yo your site, the pp_confim page processes the transaction, then stores the order information if successful and redirects to the success or failure page based on the transaction status.

Hi Jason,

I have the cart setup but I need to confirm the process. I am only using PayPal Express for the processing but when you go to checkout the PayPal screen only offers to login to a PayPal account or create a new account. I have the PayPal account optional preference set.

PayPal says I need to edit the Third-Party Add to Cart button to be updated with the PayPal settings. Does this mean I have to use the PayPal buttons? If so, then the order information will still be inserted into our database once the transaction is complete and they are returned to the site, correct?

Here is a link to the site: http://www.wolflaurelforhospice.org/donate.php

thx!

in the WA_eCart/PP_ECO_Scripts/PP_ECO_PHP.php file, the solution type and landing page are set to Sole / Billing which are the settings according to the paypal documentation that are needed to offer Paypal Account optional:

"<SolutionType>Sole</SolutionType>".
"<LandingPage>Billing</LandingPage>";


https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/api/merchant/SetExpressCheckout_API_Operation_NVP/

The code looks to be set properly to not force a paypal account.

There must be a configuration setting in your paypal account overriding this.

Under the Business setup panel on PayPal they have 3 choices:

-Use a 3rd party with PayPal built in
-Create payment buttons with HTML
-Use our Express Checkout APIs

I originally chose Use our Express Checkout APIs and then tried the Use a 3rd party with PayPal built in to see if that would work. Which one do you think I should choose?

I have the Auto Return option turned ON and the PayPal Account Optional is turned on.

thx!
Eric

I believe you the Express Checkout APIs is the right choice.

You will need to work with paypal support to determine why the account optional setting is not working, the code is passing the correct variables for account optional.
