davidr33 Posted December 7, 2007 Share Posted December 7, 2007 (edited) Rather than adding a script to handle orders before sending customers to PayPal, I'd prefer to add a button in admin orders page to clean up all Preparing[PayPal IPN] orders on a single click, which is far more easier to be done. as totalnumpty says: most of the customers abandon at checkout_confirmation.php and not at paypal. and the side effect is: you have an order in your database which never was a real order, that is the difference. for examle: if someone uses "bank transfer", the order will be only generated in database after pressing "confirm order" - and this is the thing which makes it different. but why use an additional script at the form? in my idea the whole thing would be solved, if the premature order would be stored in function process_button() and not in function confirmation() or did i miss some important thing? i think, MANY errors with "preparing" orders would have been solved then... and no customers would be astonished, if an "preparing" order is in their status history although they NEVER pressed "confirm order" ;) Edited December 7, 2007 by davidr33 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
