advice on ecart checkout pages

Hi, ok I am going to setup a local checkout via paypal and I don't want to use the wizard as I like to keep it as clean as possible with my own styling and functionality.

I just want to get clarification in case I have missed anything, so the website will have credit card payment built on the website (rather than going to a paypal external page).

here are a list of my pages and what server behaviors I will be placing on:

1. Checkout.php (this will only include a html form for billing and shipping details, on submit everything is stored in a session.
2. Checkout-Payment.php - this will only include a HTML form to capture customers card details and store in a session.
3. Checkout-Confirm.php - this is a background page that does all the processing using the session data collected from above.
4. Checkout-Success.php - this will then save all the session data into an order table on database as well as send out emails and display success message.

the Checkout-Confirm.php will include
Gateway Credentials
eCart Local Checkout
Authentication for PayPal Express


In addition if I include a PayPal button on the Checkout-Payment.php page I can include a secondary payment option that will redirect to Confirm-Paypal.php which will include the following server behaviours:

Gateway Credentials
Get Payer Profile from PayPal Express Checkout
Process Transaction with PayPal Express


The Checkout-Success.php page will include:
eCart Store Summary in Database
eCart Store Details in Database
Universal Email


Am I missing anything?

It sounds like you have everything covered. I'd still use the wizard and just re-style the forms because of some of the cool ajax stuff the wizard does, but you can do it manually as you describe.

Thanks for the clarification. I was thinking of doing as you say, but there is a lot of code that I would need to edit and then I run the rick of missing something, then having to go back and debug. to be honest I did create a separate project, and ran the wizard so I do have it all backed up, so can always refer back to it to see the AJAX functionality. its also nice to know how it all works etc.
