Tracking IP address issue - not working when using external credit card gateway

Recommended Posts

Hello All


i have tried severeal different IP ADDRESS trackers, i want to store the ip address of each order, and it is working just fine.

Except for when customers choose to pay with CC, which is done using an external payment gateway - the problem is that the ip address being stored is that of the payment gateway, and not the customers IP.

Any suggestions of hos to solve this?

I believe the problem lies in the checkout_process.php somehow.

When customer is at the checkout_confirmation, the correct IP is displayed, but hereafter the wron IP is stored in the SQL.


is it possible somehow to pull the ip already in the checkout_confirmation.php stage, and take the IP from there and brin it to the orders database?

I hope someone offers some input. thanks.
