The e-commerce.

Orders not showing in Admin


Recommended Posts



I am fairly new to oscommerce and have been having strange problems with orders in that sometimes I would get an email confirmation and then sometimes nothing although the order was going into the admin section. Now I don't get either. The only time I know that I have got an order is when I receive an email from Paypal telling me that someone has paid.


Can anyone please help?

ok, that are my email options. but what has this to do, with an order not showing up in the admin section?

when you said order doesnt show up in the admin area, do check the order table in your database and see if the orders are available there, then you could single out if that some coding issue or altogether you have a problem...

This is a common problem when using Paypal. In the standard system, the order is not written out if the customer does not return from Paypal.


Here's some more information.




Also, this problem has lots, and lots, of topic discussions. If you do some searches you can find even more information.
