The plugin is not working. I tested it with a paypal button and using paypal Instant Payment Notification (IPN) simulator and nothing gets filled into the database. What can be causing this problem?

Hi

Many thanks for buying our plugin.

If you send us the following information, we will take a look at your set up, and get you up and running. The things we need are: 1. URL of your site. 2. WordPress admin login details (so that we can check the set up). 3. Phpmyadmin login details (so that we can see the IPN table in the database, to check what it’s receiving from PayPal).

You can email these details to us at contact@outerbridge.co.uk and we’ll have a look at it today.

Regards ^Mike

Please see my private e-mail to you. I still haven’t heard from you regarding your PayPal button – can you confirm you’re ok now?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi,

Very cool.

Before I setup woo, I going to use the paypal shopping cart (PSC). However, with that plugin I have to rely on paypal to give me the 3 key shopping datas: sku, ordernumber, customernumber. These three fields are on multiple rows of information in a spreadsheet from paypal.

With the PSC I’ll bulk upload the paypal shortcode links via csv importer to thousands of posts in a pinterest clone. Some posts may have many product numbers for the user to add to their cart. They will have to place a series of three to 5 items in the cart. It would be nice if your script would handle that like the PSC.

Also, there is no way to bundle/group with the PSC. Your code would be fantastic if the user could not check out without having to have the user to place the 3 to 5 items in the cart before checkout. This could be done via the shortcode and/or some key declaring an item as part of an xstep group. It could simply refer to a csv file. Then, you’d have a Paypal IPN for bundled/grouped products.

Cheers,

J

Hi there.

Are you asking whether the plugin will do this (out of the box), or are you suggesting an enhancement for future release?

Thanks ^Mike

Hi, What part of it does it do now? Download sku/cust/order data? Grouped products? If not, what are your thoughts about the grouped product idea? Thx J

outerbridge

It doesn’t download any data – its purpose is to ensure that the logged-in user’s payment is correctly assigned to that person within WordPress. It doesn’t matter what the product is – if you are using a button to record a product, it will include the product details in the dashboard, but you are limited to what the PayPal buttons can do. I like your idea for a bundling plugin though – will give it some thought.

Hi, I see I think.

People might use their spouse’s paypal email to pay via paypal, but their logged in email is different. I was modifying the user php registration so they place both emails on file. Does this script ensures both agree?

Cheers J.

outerbridge

The email used for the transaction is logged and you can see both on the Transactions page in the admin area. There’s no requirement for the email addresses to agree; indeed that’s the point of this plugin – it allows the logged-in user to make a payment via the PayPal IPN and for it to be recorded against the WordPress user, regardless of email addresses that they’ve used in WP and PayPal.

Hi

If I would like wordpress to do some commands whenever a payment is made (for example, insert a new row in wp_usermeta for that user, etc. ) , where should I put those commands inside the plugin source code?

Thanks, Narin

Hi Narin

Thanks for buying our plugin.

It sounds like you’re looking to do some fairly complex things here, so firstly please have a read of section 4 of the readme.html file which is entitled “Set Up WordPress Using Objects”, and explains what’s available.

There are several ways of doing what you’re looking at, for example, you could use the following in your theme:
if (isset($obr_paypal_ipn->values->mc_gross) && ($obr_paypal_ipn->values->mc_gross)){
    // Amount received so do the following...
}

You mention putting commands inside the plugin source code but, as and when we release updates, these will get wiped and you’ll need to change your code again. So this is not the best way of doing what you want. If you want to make changes on the plugin side, rather than the theme side, I’d recommend extending the class and adapting your own “obr_check_for_successful_payment” and/or “obr_successful_payment” methods within the extended plugin.

Hope this helps.

Regards ^Mike
