etzeppy Posted June 18, 2010 Share Posted June 18, 2010 I recently installed the certified "PayPal Website Payments Standard" module and it seems to be working fine. However, I have noticed that once some enters the "Order Review" page (checkout_confirmation.php), an order gets loaded into my database with status "Preparing PayPal". It seems like preparing an order at this point is 1 step early. The shopper has not Confirmed the order yet so it's not really an order. They may abort completely, continue shopping, or come back later. Don't get me wrong...having a pre-order in the database once they hit "Confirm Order" is a really good idea. I just don't like orders showing up in my database that I cannot tell if they are real orders that did not complete in PayPal or just from a customer that is not done shopping yet. Am I missing a key point? Is there a different PayPal module that handles this better? Thanks for any input. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
