My objective with my checkout is for the customer to;.

1. Add the item to cart.

2. Hit the checkout button.

3. Enter/edit appropriate delivery details - under the shipping section a Cheapest Freight Method is the only option to choose (default).

4. Customer continues to next page where they can select which payment option they wish to use (paypal or direct deposit).

5. Customer continues to the next page where the order details are given (confirmation)..

6. Customer confirms order and on the order success page it says store /img/avatar4.jpg will get back to customer via email with cheapest freight method shortly..

7. Automatic email is sent to customer with same information as order success page..

8. I send invoice asking for payment with cheapest shipping method and details of payment..

Now how would I got about doing alot of this?.

Google searches prove pretty useless but it would be good if someone could help me with these steps;.

2, 3, 6, 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I assume this would be helpful to any others out there who want to do something similar..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Ok thanks mate, I'll do a few searches and see if I can find anything...

Comment #2

Just coming back to say that I haven't found any contribution that do something like this..

Does anyone have any advice on how I can setup osCommerce to checkout this way?..

Comment #3

I think this would be possible but if the re is no contribution you need to code it yourself..

Start withthe shipping modules, find one that kind of does what you want, and change it until it does do what you want..

The same with checkout, you could ammend a COD module to say PayPal or Direct.

You get me?..

It's all set up now, but I have a final question..

How do I stop the "Order process" email from being sent out as soon as the checkout process is complete?.

I know it's not quite what you asked, but there are quite a few postage calculators in the contibutions section... if postage is calculated it will save a lot of time & work, and I suspect get you more sales too. I know when I am shopping online I want to know how much it will cost all up.

Before.

I hit "buy"..

Comment #6

No offence but if I wanted that, this checkout method would be pretty much useless.

Depending on which payment method you're using, I assume you could just delete the function for send mail..

For example, I use PayPal IPN. So I open up catalog>includes>modules>payment>paypal_ipn.php.

Near the bottom of the file, look for this:.

Tep_mail($order->customer['firstname']' '$order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS);.

// send emails to other people.

If (SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO != '') {.

Tep_mail('', SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO, EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS);.

}.

I'm guessing that you could delete that first chunk and that would stop the email from being sent to the customer. You could keep (or delete) the second part unless you'd like your store to get the Order Process email. Deleting the first part (or perhaps it could be commented out?).

Tep_mail($order->customer['firstname']' '$order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS);.

Should result in the Order Process email NOT being sent to the customer. I haven't tested this at all, as I do want buyers to get their emails, but....test it and see what happens..

I've been messing around with mine lately as I don't like the way the email is formatted and was able to edit this file to change what appears and how it appears in the Order Process email..
