Send additional email (from eCart)

Send additional email (from eCart)

Hello,

I do not see anywhere to design the email body for any "Thank You" email to send to donors.

The eCart system asks if we would would want such an email to be sent (i.e. in addition to the one they will in any case receive from the Payment Gateway), but I saw nowhere in the CheckOut Wizard to add such an email body, so any such thanks can be despatched upon receipt of a donation.

How do I set up Universal Email to take care of this, or any other. I will be using the PEAR option, if that makes a difference.

Thank you,

The email server behavior should be applied on the confirm.php page and/or the pp_confirm.php page. You can open and edit the email contents and delivery preferences on that page.

Hello,

Thank you.
I now have the right general idea ... but ...
sI have a question. And I may be in error.

Success versus failure (to pay)?

Should not the server behaviour be placed upon the checkout_success and/or pp_landing pages?

Unless I am mistaken, then at the confirm page stage, payers have not yet had their cards confirmed?

Should I not, rather, put the server behaviour on the success and pp_landing pages? And should I not then set the email to send upon 'page load'? Otherwise it seems to be that failures to pay will receive emails even if they go on to fail? Or am I missing something?

Thank you for your kindness,

The code on the confirm page that is below the transaction only runs after the card payment has been made. That is the page it should be on.

If you put it on the success page, someone could go straight to that page without paying.

Thank you.
I should have known better than thinking you might have made an error.

What trigger should I use?

With every good wish,

Use the same trigger as the payment processing uses to make sure it only sends when the payment is made. Just apply with the default and then go in and cut and paste to make it easy.

Hello,

I just want to confirm I have the right code.

In both files (i.e. in 'confirm.php' and 'pp_confirm.php'), I currently have the following code right before the Universal email sendout:
if (true).

Clearly, I have to replace this.

I am thinking that the code I need to use in 'confirm.php' is:

if (isset($_POST["Payment_submit"]) || isset($_POST["Payment_submit_x"])).

But I think there is some code referencing PayPal in that same file that I can ignore, which goes:

$WA_PP_ECO_SetResult = WA_PP_ECO_SOAPObject();
if (!isset($_GET["plugin_file"]) && isset($_POST["payment-type"]) && $_POST["payment-type"]=="paypal").

I believe that I should ignore that, and go over to the pp_confirm file, and insert the following that I have copied from that file as:

if ((isset($_GET["token"]) && isset($_GET["PayerID"])) || (isset($_SESSION["PayPal_ECO_Token"]) && $_SESSION["PayPal_ECO_Token"] != ""))

In other words, even though PayPal data exists in both files, I should ignore whatever I see referenced there for PayPal in the first file, and only handle the Universal email trigger in the second one. So I make but the one paste operation in each.

Thank you.

Hello,

I just tried, using:
if (isset($_POST["Payment_submit"]) || isset($_POST["Payment_submit_x"]))

the email did not send.

I guess I also have to hope that there is nothing wrong, once again, with my email service.

I have attached the relevant confirm file in case you are quickly able to spot something.

Thank you for your kindness,

You have to move lines 307-314 down below the email code. That is redirecting people to the success page before the email can be sent.

It looks like you might also want to add the Host, Port, and Authorization settings to the original email on lines 316-327 if you want that email to send with your smtp server. If you don't want both emails, then you could just delete that code as well.

Hello,

Just to be clear ... the code placements in the original file were not determined by. I just clicked the "Send Mail" option in the WebAssist menu, and then let the extension do its thing.

I have, however, just tried the operation you suggested.

I.e. as in the file attached, I moved lines 307-314 below the email code the extension generated,
That was the only modification I made.

There was a successful interaction with Authorize.net which sent the usual receipt emails to me as (a) merchant, and (b) donor..

But unfortunately ...

(1) The confirm page goes completely blank after I hit submit.

(2) The confirm page code sends no receipt email.

(3) No receipt page appears on screen.

(4) And finally, Universal email does not send the personalized email.

I have reverted to the original page.

(I can also do this the long way round, and send out my personalized donor emails by hand as and when I get notified, by Authorize.net, that monies have arrived, if necessary)

Thank you.
