Equivalence/checkout_process

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the hard work updating thes Paypal modules. I just had a few questions.

 

1. In the addon Paypal IPN (official) which version number is the Paypal Standard 1.0 equivalent to?

 

2. Do changes made to checkout_process.php still need to be incorporated into the new Paypal Standard 1.0?

 

Thanks again for all your work.

Hi Scott..

 

1. In the addon Paypal IPN (official) which version number is the Paypal Standard 1.0 equivalent to?

 

That PayPal IPN add-on is no longer an "official" module due to the foreign changes and additions made to it by other community members. Although such changes are welcome, it is impossible to have a certified version while accepting such changes.

 

The new PayPal Standard module is a certified module and is locked on the add-ons site to prevent others from introducing changes. This module will be formerly introduced with the 2.2 RC2 release and is compatible with 2.2 MS2 and 2.2 RC1 for existing store owners.

 

The modules in 2.2 RC2 have been released as add-ons for easier version tracking.

 

2. Do changes made to checkout_process.php still need to be incorporated into the new Paypal Standard 1.0?

 

Unfortunately yes, due to the manner of storing the order in the database before forwarding the customer to PayPals site. This is required to not lose orders when customers do not click on the final "continue to store" button on PayPals site.

 

The Express Checkout and Direct Payments modules do not share this problem.
