Hello EE enthusiasts,
I have a simple form with a Paypal Checkout.
When someone checks out I want to send an email with the form details.
I’ve attempted multiple ways using the stand EE Contact form but that over rides the Paypal scripts. This a such a simple task but maybe Im just burnt out.
Do I need to Form within a form? How to fire on checkout? Coding in circles over here.
Any thoughts appreciated.
Take Care, JohnBoy
What’s the paypal checkout form look like? I’m not sure how that works, so hard to have a good suggestion.
Given a choice, I’d do the form as an EE add-on OR can you config PayPal to ping a response?
That’s what the native Simple Commerce does- it uses PayPal Instant Payment Notifications assuming you can set those up, you could make a really simple module that when the IPN is pinged, send an email.
Grab the Simple Commerce module and look at the code- you’d really just need the IPN bit, then send an email if you get a positive response.
BUT I’m not even sure you’ve got an IPN response coming in, so pretty much just brainstorming possibilities.
