Could use HELP! with understanding checkout processing


Recommended Posts

Sure could use some pointers on how the checkout process works. Specifically want to know how the contents of the customers basket get into the ORDERS_PRODUCTS during order completion.


Been studying it all day. It appears the basket is loaded\kept in an array() ? I was originally looking for table processing - i.e. I assumed once the payment was confirmed by customer that the basket was in the TABLE_CUSTOMERS_BASKET and processed from there, but it appears the basket is kept in an array() while the customer is online, but also stored in the TABLE for retrieving later if needed...?


What am I trying to do?...I have created a new shopping module/page. When the customer adds something to the cart from this new page, I have a new column in TABLE_CUSTOMERS_BASKET to let me know if the product was indeed added from my new page. And when they complete the order, I want to update TABLE_ORDERS_PRODUCTS (which also has the same new column) with this info from the basket. Hope that is clear.


BTW, I am using PayPal IPN and 2checkout for payment processing.


Help would be much appreciated!
