“Effortless E-Commerce with PHP and MySQL” Chapter 10 Bonus Pages

November 11, 2010

In continuing my posts of extra bits from my Effortless E-Commerce with PHP and MySQL book, here are nine pages intended for the end of Chapter 10, “Checking Out ”. This chapter is from Part 3 of the book, which covers the example that sells physical products. The particular extras in the PDF are:

  • Emailing HTML and plain text receipts using the Zend Framework
  • Ways to create great customer service
  • Security improvements to consider
  • Using JavaScript to prevent duplicate orders (i.e., changing and disabling the submit button once it’s been clicked)
  • Better use of the gateway communications scripts

Some of the extra code and extra SQL discussed in this PDF is already available for download from the book’s pages on this site.
