add item to cart
go to PayPal to pay
close browser before being redirected back to cart
Paypal emails confirmation but..
cart shows no evidence of a purchase.
I need something that captures all of the details of the purchase regardless of whether the user closes their browser before being redirected.
Has anyone found a solution that has overcome this? Squirrelcart and Comdev's ecommerce both fail the test.
PayPal (as far as I know) sends payment notifications to cart in an independent process, once transaction is through -- browser closed or not, like an e-mail notification that is sent to you.
Probably, these carts do not capture this notification, but silly wait for user to go back and make transaction done.
osCommerce is an ugly beast, but one of its add-on modules does exaclty what you need.
Depending on your level of programming ability it is not that difficult to integrate.
