PayPal Orders Not Receing Confirmation Emails OSC 2.31

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am using OSC 2.31 and having a strange issue. On random Paypal payments, I am not receiving the confirmation order email. I am assuming this is caused by customer not finishing the checkout and not returning to checkout_success page. Is there anyway for force Paypal to return or force the order confirmation email? I am not losing payment or orders, just not receiving the emails.

 

Thanks JR

Hello sorry for my bad english

To understand why you have to understand how Oscommerce and Paypal work.

Oscommerce confirms a order on the way back on the page checkout_success ( instead to validate the order by a return of payment).

You few have an automatic return with paypal but only with the customers register to paypal.

You could try adding a return url to your websites checkout_process.php file in your paypal profile, but i assume you have done this already. Paypal will only send emails if the checkout payment was completed fully. If a customer closes without making a payment no email will be sent.

You may need to use the send second order email in the my store settings.
